Way to go @cazio!  You're really close to crossing that zero, and then continuing on.  Go go go!

A belated shoutout to @sadiesortsitout -- how close are you?  Way to set goals and chug toward them.  You can do it!

Welcome @violets!  Good job to set a goal.  Once you get the snowball (cash ball) growing, it will get easier and faster.

You can do it @violets!

I remember very clearly reaching 10K and the weight of my shoulders it was. I hadn't been racing specifically to 10K, and yet it was really a psychological marker for enough safety for my lizard brain.

This is a pleasant surprise! I didn't think I was making much progress-- really had hoped to do more this year. But I made my $10,000 goal!

starting off 2023 with a bang! january is already shaping up to be full of expenses, but I hope to tuck as much as i can away. trying to tell myself it's okay to invest in my health (aka dental work, eye exams etc) - saving isn't worth much when your health suffers because of it.

somewhat surprised o see any growth this month, but i think that's just because i didn't have any money leftover to put in my EF, which makes it feel like i did nothing. can't wait for those student loans to be forgiven, and hopefully i'll get a tax return that will help get me to 10k by march!

Great job @cazio!  You crossed the zero and now you're almost to the finish line. 

Looks like multiple potential graduations in the next few months!
