Current Savings: KSH: 3,000/=First of all, let me apologize for not posting the third update last week. I have been a little under the weather but am alright now.
For those not saving, 3,000 in 6 weeks might seem like a small amount, but for those of us wanting to have something kept aside by the end of the year, this is a HUGE goal.
This is the 6th Friday and we are doing pretty well. I have already made my deposit to M-Shwari and am so proud of myself and all of you who are following this challenge.
You know, saving is not about depositing a huge amount in your account, it is about the small changes you make, putting away some money and watching it grow week after week. It is truly a wonderful feeling, seeing that in two weeks’ time, we will be at Ksh 4,000/=
I know it is not easy sometimes. At times I pass by the market and see some gorgeous tops that I could easily convince myself I need. However, I choose to walk away reminding myself that the 200 bob can go to my savings plan. Instead of eating chicken and chips for lunch, I choose to eat rice and French beans or something healthier like vegetables. That extra 100 bob goes to my savings plan while also staying healthier.
It’s truly about the small adjustments you make in everyday life.
Before you know it, your savings will have grown to 10 or 20 thousand and you can reinvest it for some more growth.
Wishing you a great weekend and hoping that you are still on track with your savings.
For those who are yet to join the challenge, it is never too late.
