February 2014 Savings Update

Got behind on the monthly update, but here it is for February. We got a $800 deposit to our HSA which was a great bump, but then had $1100 in medical bills, so washed that out as soon as we got it. Overall another great month though. Excited for Marchs Savings Update next weekend now that the Deadwood/Tax Return Money is in savings too. Smile

Regular savings hit $40K! Continuing to move up the ladder. I need to get my focus back on specific goals. Seeing goals met for different accounts really helps my motivation, so need to stop chucking random amounts to random accounts and focus on one goal at a time.

This same post last year we were at $57,890. So in one year we went up $23,360.00! And that is with a week long trip to Vegas, a 7 day Carribean Cruise, a weekend getaway to Wendover, a $3000 knee injury, refinancing the mortgage and paying extra principle payments every month! Wow, it's amazing what you can do penny by penny!

HSA went down $3000 when I paid DH's medical bills for his knee...so that was a big blow. But at least we had the money in the HSA to pay for it.
On the flip side we got DH's yearly retirement statement and it went up $3760 from my last estimate...so all in all the numbers came out ok.
After all that moving around we are up $95 for the month! Smile
