You may or may not have noticed the quiet changes I made to my financial progress bar.
I couldn’t stand being just so dang close to my tuition goal of $6000 I finally allowed myself to temporarily move around some money from my emergency fund to reach my tuition savings goal. I had constantly been thinking about the extra little bit I needed to reach this goal, so I moved $209 from emergency savings to my tuition savings.
Now I have $6000 for potential tuition! A full 4 months before my goal date!
This was all actually very anti-climatic because I keep both of these funds in my TFSA and just have an excel file that lists how much of the total goes to which savings goal.
The anti-climatic vibe was a bit interesting too because I had really been looking forward to this day for a while and had a lot of expectations about how relieved, safe, secure and/or happy I would be.
Don’t get me wrong, I do feel very good! But I do feel a little less good knowing that next month I’m going to have to just finally top up that emergency fund – after that maybe I will feel excited relieved.
