I started using DIGIT, a new way of squeezing out some extra cash from my bank account, exactly a month ago. I wrote about it here. My goal was to squeeze some leftover money after accounting for all the budgeted categories (expenses, savings and investment goals). Every time the savings account accumulates to a couple hundred bucks, my plan was to withdraw it and apply towards my Financial Independence goals.
That said, how is DIGIT doing? Very well 🙂
As of today, DIGIT has squirreled away $106 from my bank account. It started slower than I originally anticipated, but it seems to be learning fast and squeezing more money out of my account. This is good in two ways for me:
- This is $106 I did know I could live without and
- This is $106 that I would have spent on something less important than my financial independence goals.
So, go DIGIT! By next DIGIT update, I will talk about how I used this money towards my financial independence goals.
