Still Saving...Really!

I know you aren't reading much on this blog lately. It seems I have been hit with the fitness bug and I'm spending more of my free time contemplating better health than I am finances. This sure isn't a bad thing. I look at staying healthy an investment in my future health. I fell off the wagon in the last year, so it was time to get started tracking calories, and getting exercise in.

The good news is that our finances are on auto pilot in so many areas that I don't have to spend much time working on finances. Part of me is sad about that, but the other part is happy with the freedom that comes with it. Our Roth contributions and college investments are all automatically withdrawn from our checking account. Several of our utilities are auto withdrawn as well. I'm even saving for that 52 Week Saving Challenge automatically, which I now have $409 saved there!

I still have several things I need to go online manually to pay or check on, but I have found that once a week is plenty to check on any credit card transactions and due dates, or any upcoming bills that need to be paid. I usually do this on a Friday or Monday depending on the time I have available. I do hope to keep coming back here to cheer you on and give you new ideas, so keep checking in!

Are you able to keep your finances on autopilot? Are you on a fitness or diet regimen since the new year?
