My DH made me SO HAPPY on Sat. He said he thinks we can start looking for a house (our first) next Summer. He was always so up in the air so I am just estatic that we have a goal now. SO, this means kick paying off cards into HIGH GEAR so we can start saving for a home!!! :-)

Congrats! That is a huge step! DH and I made that decision last month. Next summer is our goal, but that will be a struggle. I would rather set a hard goal, if I gave myself 2 years then it would be easier to buy things I don't NEED now and say "I've got 2 whole years!" In 6 months we will reevaluate and add a few months to the plan if we need to.

Yippeeeee!!

I like your idea about setting a hard goal and your reasoning that it will require sacrifices. You're right that sometimes we think things are easy so we might not put as much effort into meeting our goal. Even if we have to reevaluate to meet the goal the effort put in now will payoff.
