Many PF/FI bloggers seem to have a name for theirs and I guess there is some power in naming and defining the goal – making it personal.
Some call it their ‘F.U. or F*** You Money, which I guess is what they want to say to their bosses/the establishment/everyone once they’ve reached their goal!
Anyway, some names I considered included:
‘Happy Fund‘ – I like this one but it suggests that I’m not happy now and that’s not true!
‘Swag Bag‘ – I was really going to go for this one but it’s got dodgy connotations!
‘Money Pot‘ – my Plan B name if I couldn’t think of a better one!
So after racking my brains for a bit, behold my….
Well, I like my science fiction, so I thought it sounded a bit cool in a geeky sort of way, haha!
If I stretch myself with my annual goals, it’s possible that I may get there sooner, so I intend to give myself challenging yearly goals.
Based on end of November numbers, my Future Fund stands at £41,884.52.
At 16.75% of my target, there’s still some way to go but I will be giving it my best shot!
I’m heartened by my own progress so far and greatly encouraged and inspired by others in the PF blogging community.
I am aware however that in maintaining certain aspects of quality in my life (eg my holidays, my social life), I need to ensure I control my spending in other areas, being frugal where I can so that I can continue to save and invest as much as I can.
I’m up to the challenge!
