Thanks DeShena, Yes it requires a lot of discipline, but i’ve made life easier on myself my automating all my savings so the choice is out of my hands, the money goes in there whether I like it or not! lol. Now that we are done with the wedding, I have that $400 spread throughout all my other “money buckets”.
