Our 2018 Financial Goals

Family Balance Sheet

Did you make 2018 financial goals ? My husband and I discussed some ideas over our holiday break and we decided on 2 solid must-achieve financial goals for the year. If we complete them early, we’ll move on to 2 additional goals that are on our radar. Our 2 Main Financial Goals for 2018: 1 – Finish the will. 2 Additional Goals: If we save the $10k early, we’d like to work on the following 2 goals.

Choose Thrift First Challenge – January Meeting

Family Balance Sheet

In 2015 I’m challenging myself to rethink purchases by taking advantage of more cost effective solutions like borrowing, buying second hand, or just making do with what we already have. We have some hefty financial goals this year and this is just one more way for me to squeeze more from our budget. Instead of buying new this year, ask yourself these questions: Can I borrow from someone? Can I find what I need at a second hand or thrift store?

Take Control of Your Money in 2015

Family Balance Sheet

My husband and I make some financial goals at the start of every year. When I run the numbers, I realize it’s going to take years before we can scream, ”WE’RE DEBT FREE”, our ultimate goal. We will be challenging ourselves to resist buying retail and instead choose thrift by borrowing, buying second hand, or making do with what we already have. This should start next week and my goal is to post on Fridays. New year.

Family Balance Sheet

And while I don’t like parting with our money, I am grateful that this repair won’t send us into financial distress. Being self-employed, we have a higher starter fund on hand and when we pay off our non-mortgage debt, we will save to at least 6 months expenses and maybe even more. When we’re crazy busy and the family is demanding that they be fed, I always have the ingredients for spaghetti on hand. There are online sites that will buy books.
