In July when Mr. Sam was laid off, I assumed we would just have to throw our 2013 savings goals out the window. But, he was able to find reemployment before his severance ran out. And while he took a pay cut, I received a raise that off set his pay cut so overall our household income remained the same. Even so, we had to work hard to catch up since I had put many of our savings efforts on hold while he was job searching.
I have one more pay check before the end of the year, so the 401k number will increase and, as a result, we will exceed our savings from 2012 and come close to saving $63,000 in 2013.
