    I have been awful at updating and May has been up and down but proud to say that I've grinding enough to have saved over $9k for bills March-June. And will make $11k more before I head back to Europe in July.

    Thank you because I feel stuck and torturous slowly paying things off. And I've had spurts of income ($6k from 2 clients) that I feel I blew vs saving, lol. Godspeed for us all because I'm praying to the camgods this summer isn't snailspeed before I take a burnout break.

    paying things off can be so painful because it feels like you didnt "get anything out of it"
    hopefully you can get yourself some small treats or little motivations? sometimes that can help
    like 1 shirt you liked, or maybe a coffee or a lunch out each week you hit your goal? IDK might help you
    thats what i do , i keep a steady stream of packages coming lol small orders like clothes on sale. so when i am on cam a package treat arrives for my reward for hitting my goals.
    have you tried something like that?

    seems like you are making good progress regardless so keep it up! dont give up!

    So proud of you! Not only MAKING the money but then saving the money. At this point 15.4% goes to self employment taxes and 24% to the federal government. I'd have to make 140% just to satisfy taxes. Not even including any financial obligations. Ugh. I'm envious.

    You are one bad bitch. "Bad Bitches Only!" BBO - Migos Totally came to mind.

    Alrighty! First update for me! I'm slowly but steadily making progress. I'm making deposits once a week until I reach my goal. If I make a surplus and all the bills are paid, I'll deposit more than my minimum, which is $290/week.

    As I mentioned earlier in the thread, my only source of income is camming, but I'm making a plan to start up a LoyalFans, publish at least 10 clips to my clip sites per week for (hopefully) even more (passive) income coming in. This is most consistent I've ever been with working so it's a huge transition and challenge, but now I have something huge to work for!

    $1,072/$6,000

    I just underwent major surgery on June 28th and sadly, experienced a sudden death in my immediate family literally the next morning. As a result, July is going to be a short month for me financially.

    My recovery will likely take a month and it's only been a week so far. A brutal, exhausting, excruciatingly painful one at that. Nevertheless, I'm staying on track. I'm hoping I'll at least be able to work a week or two this month, but we'll see. Also, I had to invest in automatic feeders for all my cats since walking around was nearly impossible. A HUGE HELP, but it set me back the $250 bucks that wouldve gone to savings this week. Oh well. It is what it is.

    Currently now: $2032/$6000

    I am sorry to hear that, Melanie! I wish you an easy recovery and the strength to get trough the loss of your family member.
