How did your November Goals play out? Feeling good about it? If you didn't accomplish everything you had hoped to, no need to kick yourself. Try, try again.....

Let us know how you did and set some goals for December!

My November Goals were:

* We had a freak snowstorm and just got our power back on after 4.5 days. We also lost a very large tree and will need more tree removal done. Figure out cost & sched to have it done. We'll be doing the removal ourselves, purchased equipment needed -

Hmm, I just reviewed the November Goalsl thread and I didn't set any goals! So I guess I accomplished them all!!!

My December goals are :

1. Stay within my budget and don't start buying last minute gifts outside that budget!
2. Do not stay up until 1:00 a.m on Christmas Eve watching the NORAD site and hoping to see Santa as he swings by Ottawa.
3. I have a 3-week holiday at Christmas and I've saved up $500 in blow-money. Stay within that budget and don't go crazy at the Boxing Day sales.
4. Set up my 2012 spreadsheets.
5. Enjoy myself. I've been so stressed lately I really need to remind myself not to be too ambitious during my time off and, instead, let myself relax and enjoy life!

Lol Kate I LOVE the NORAD site!!!! I watch for Santa every year!
I had no November goals (ick) but my December goals are pretty easy . . . Keep to Christmas budget and up the savings a little bit. I still have to decide what to do in my next phase (i.e. target the large student loan agressively OR put money in RRSP savings and uset he tax return to pay of the debt). Still tyring to figure it out!)
