My March goals will be based on my perenial goals. The stuff in blue is my addition for the month of March.
My February Goals were:
* Complete my home improvement fund, I have $1600 left. Goal was $6000 - minus the $700 for the sofa, get it to $5300.
This is a great idea! I have never done this.
Goal #1: When DH's 2 bonuses come in, move one into Efund. Take 80% of other bonus and pay to Heloc. Use 10% toward vacation payment. Put 10% aside for home repairs.
Goal #2: When tax refund comes in use toward cc.with 5700 dollar balance.
Since things have come through a bit - tax refunds, and after almost 3 months before getting an answer I did end up getting a merit increase and yesterday's pay came with the backpay from July on. Dh is expecting a nice check too this week from a gig he just finished up today on. So with all that (plus a bonus at the end of next month) the goals are:
#1 Pay off a few medical bills - some that are way overdue - actually I plan on doing that starting this weekend. My big hospital bill will be paid off by May. Then I can work on some others too.
#2 Finally get a new stove after 5 months with no oven. Still trying decide on new vs. used as I am not willing to compromise on a stove. I lived with a crappy stove for almost 20 years and don't wish to do that again. I'm willing to spend a little more to get the stove I want.
#3 Put some money into the EF which got depleted.
1) Pay off Discover, toolbox acct, and small CC. Pay off interest bearing portion of Best Buy account.
Prepaid medical deductible and coinsurance bill for Liam :), paid off Small CC, paid off interest bearing portion of Best Buy
Well let's see as this is my last month of agressive goals until I again have a substantial income under me, we are now in a wait and see position.
Oh lets see how Feb went:
Feb 2012 Goals:
1. Continue to beef up a personal savings account. Now that I have the kids fund all good for now, I thought it would be great to see my own balance sheet go up for awhile!
Well it is up, however, I have added some life insurance and it needs to go up more for when I am not working. I am thinking the middle of
Okay, here goes...
