I'm Asking: Are You Saving Up For Anything Special?

I'm Asking: Are You Saving Up For Anything Special?

Most of us are trying to be better about saving for the sake of having a cash cushion, but that doesn't mean we can't simultaneously save for a special something.

Aside from adding more padding to my emergency fund, I have my sights on saving for my honeymoon and my friend's bachelorette party and wedding. Do you have any savings goals in the pipeline?

They say when it rains it pours, but mainly I am saving for my wedding and honeymoon. Although my car is 10 years old and might not hold on much longer.

Not really. We just bought what we were saving for: a wood stove for the house. It should help us save on our heating bills b/c we have all the free wood we want to burn and in a few years it will probably pay for itself. Other than that, the only thing we're really saving for is retirement, lol.

Mostly, I just stock money away without thinking of what it's going to later other than the Big Things (a house, having kids one day, etc). It's just there, and I don't touch it. But for something special, we are saving separately for a honeymoon sometime next year -- probably Peru!

My savings are pretty depleted right now...we had a very simple wedding/honeymoon so that we could use our savings for a healthy down payment on a house. Now we're saving up to continue fixing it up and making it our own, one project at a time! Hopefully finishing up painting the exterior this weekend. What a job!

I'm saving up to buy a (used) car. Mine died last year and I've been borrowing my mom's. I don't want to get a loan until the economy is more stable (my hours may get cut), so I'm going to try to pay the whole thing in cash. I've been saving since January and only have a small portion.

Probably not lawchick but it helps to make it funny. I am in a great position in my current position where my boss and friend is holding on to me until I find a new position. My current company is such a mess that a year in a stable boring job will be great. :)

down payment for a house, and I guess also for when we decide to have kids, since that will probably mean I'll be away from work for some period of time.

Yes I am. For two major things next year. I want to see no less than three out of the State NASCAR races next year. So in order to enjoy the full experience I need to save in advance. Second, I want to either take my sister to Puerto Rico for a week long luxury resort vacation or buy her a new tankless water heater for her house. Either or.

i guess that my goal should be to save for my honeymoon with my fiance since we're getting married soon, but really the thing that i WOULD save for would be to have a kid so we wouldn't be strapped when the time comes. but unfortunately i'm not really in a place where i have money to save - it's all going to bills and to pay off my current debts.

I'm saving up for all those post-college expenses, specifically a washer and dryer in case my next apartment has hook-ups. I want the red ones at Lowe's!

My husband and I are planning to start trying at the beginning of 2009 for our first child. Right now we're saving with the goal that I could be a stay-at-home-mom when the baby arrives.

We are saving for our honeymoon trip back home to Alaska. We "have" the money right now, but it is a huge expense and we would like to have as much extra as possible. I also don't want to worry about budgeting too much while I'm on vacation! It's the only vacation I'll probably be going on in the next year or so.
