Realistic Goals

May 16th, 2011 at 10:16 am

I was sitting here writing out a new list of goals and decided the ones I was making were not realistic at all. So I scratched them out and started again small. Here is what I have so far: Boost baby emergency fund from 500 to 1000. Keeping adding in the automatic 75$ a month into my large ef so by December as long as I don't touch the money or add any extra I'd have 5600. Start saving for a car since I don't have to rush anymore to buy one, I have about 1000$ left of my income tax and I am going to put 500 into my car fund and 500 toward shelving, a picnic table and the rest towards a new camera. My goal is to save about 2000 for a car. So not so offical goals:

1) Baby Ef: 500/1000 To be completed by Sept. 2011
2) Large Ef: 5000/5600 To be completed by Dec. 2011
3)Christmas: 300/800
4) Car: 500/2000

Hopefully I can meet them all my job is kind of up in the air as of September, not sure what I'm going to be doing. Lots of decisions to make so hopefully I can just save up and maybe finish early. That would be great Smile

    I think you are really wise to try to keep your goals attainable. It will lead to more success and less frustration if you have some insurance that you aren't starting out with a pie-in-the-sky goal that you'll never reach... good luck to you!
