    I like your plan to stick with the challenge and add the bonus money to get your emergency fund saved faster. You're doing a great job!

      This week I made 2 bonus deposits from other sources of income besides my day job. When the account balance hits Dave Ramsey's $1K mini emergency fund amount I will stop the bonus deposits, continue the 52 week challenge but redirect that bonus money to the credit card balances.

      Week 11 challenge deposit today $50
      Challenge total: $232

      Bonus deposits:
      3/11 $21
      3/13 $25

      Account total: $297

          Great job Steve! Great use of bonus money. I do the same with small, non regular money such as dividend checks.

                Week 13 challenge deposit: $25
                Bonus Deposit: $5

                Challenge total: $306
                Account Balance: $450.09

                I'm feeling pretty broke after my vacation. but I still paid myself first from the "non-overtime" half of my challenge sheet, and made a bonus deposit from another small bit of income that arrived.

                The bank paid my first interest payment. A whopping $0.09 woo hoo! Okay I'm not going to get rich from this account but nine cents is better than no cents.

                  Great job Steve! Isn't the interest rate crazy? .09. Well, at least now it's YOUR .09!

                    Yeah $0.09 interest is nuts but I guess that's our reality right now. I made a mistake on my addition in the last thread. My EF balance is now actually $475.09 I am dying to get to the $1K base amount then attack my credit cards.

                      Work is really busy since I got back from vacation. Next week I'll be able to do a larger challenge deposit and another couple bonus deposits. Looking forward to seeing the balance be 1K.

                          You are so close to the $1000 mark! I'll be cheering with you when you get there.
