Goals for 2015

December 29th, 2014 at 07:34 pm

I've noticed everyone else posting their goals for the new year, so I though I would go ahead and talk about mine.

I'm setting the bar high again, even though I didn't complete my goals this year. I think it's better to push yourself to try harder.

1.) $4,500 in EF

This is a repeat from last year. I didn't get it done, so it's at the top of the list. I am currently sitting at $2,575 so I need $1,925 to finish this off.

2.) Add $2,500 to Roth IRA

This year I completed my goal of putting $2,000 in my Roth, so I'm going to push myself to put the same plus an additional $500.

3.) $1,000 for Animal Fund

Another goal that didn't get completed previously. Just wanting to get a cash buffer so if there is a vet emergency or if another big animal related purchase comes up, I will be covered.

4.) Pay of LOC

Not a big priority to me, but husband is starting to bug on it. So this may move up the list.

5.) Save $1,000 for a Truck

Husband wants a "new" truck. Maybe in the next year, but not entirely sure. So just setting a low goal that may change.

All totaled that is about $11,500 to come up with this year. I don't have nearly that much extra cash each month, so we'll see how creatively I can complete these goals!

    It's good to be working toward goals. even if you don't hit it you'll have more than if you did nothing.

    I agree that setting the bar high is the way to go and am aiming to do the same while creating my goals.

    Great goals and like laceshawl said, even if you don't hit them all, you will be further along than if you didn't try. Happy 2015.

    I agree. I made progress, and that's all that matters! I'd rather go forwards than backwards.
