My short-term savings goal is to have an emergency fund with $1,000. I started and was almost half way there until I hit a road block. I am very happy to say that starting today $100 is being direct deposited into my savings account.
Today was payday. My savings account was funded and the difference went into my checking account. I managed to pay the bills that are currently due with the money that is in the checking account. Funny how I am now working with $100 less and things still get done.
This just proves you can save while paying down debt.
