Thing 46, 90, 91

46. Start saving money for a new car
90. Save $1 a day in two different accounts
91. Every week, put money into a savings account equal to how old I am

I am grouping the financial ones together here at the end of this round. I did indeed create a new savings account for a new car. I started it in September 2018 with an initial deposit of $1,000 and had some money from each paycheck automatically put into the account since. I've pulled some money out of it for the upkeep of my current car, but I did manage to save a bit in the account. So I'm considering it a win.

I kept my current 101 Things in 1001 Days account with its weekly deposit of $7 running, even through my unemployment. I have a second account in another bank where I set up an automatic deposit of $1 a day as well. Both accounts have remained untouched throughout the duration of my 1001 days.

I kept this savings account up as well, and I kept it active even when I lost my job. So I have indeed been saving an amount equal to my age each week, and I've incremented it each year after my birthday.
