I'm feeling a little overwhelmed this week with my new savings goal for a down payment for a new house. So this is a reminder of the tool we use here to break up large goals into smaller ones. Whether you are saving or paying down debt it is really helpful to have a smaller goal to celebrate as you work towards your big goal.
So not only do we have save a large amount we have to save fees and lawyer fees to make this dream a reality. I have broken this down for us into smaller chunks that will be easier to swallow. When we reach those goals we will celebrate.
You can pick a goal that does not cost money but for our first celebration it will cost a bit. But I have found a cheaper solution. I am going to buy some lobster tails at Costco which cost much less than our regular grocery store and I am going to cook them for my husband and I as part of a candle light supper after the baby goes to bed. I don't know exactly how long this will take us to reach this goal but I have an idea and hope to reach it.
I had forgotten about this helpful tool until a very good friend of mine reminded me.
I am very excited about this and I hope this motivates you all to reach your goals and dreams.
