I've just barely touched base with you on here before about my financial goals (here) and my dreams (here ) Well, I want to dive a little bit deeper. I won't say specifics as of now, but I'll give you a little timeline I've created in coorilation with our new financial plan.
Jan 2013: my dental bill will be paid off.
Feb. 2013: my husbands dental bill will be paid off.
April 2013: Our car will be paid off, and we will start contributing (finally) to savings.
Jump down to:
April 2014: All of our credit card debt will be gone!
1. We will have 3 months of income in our emergency savings.
2. I will have all of the money I need for my dream Italy vacation.
I know Decemeber 2014 seems like a long ways away, but in reality, with the number of dollars I'm looking at here, 23 months is dedicated, and impressive ;) just paying off our dental bills and car payment will free up a lot of extra money every month - money I will use to pay off our visa.
I realized something had to change. June 2015 I will be 30. 30 is when I want to go to Italy. I don't want to have to ever 40+ hours a week for someone else, and I'd love if my husband could cut back on his hours.
This is my motivation: Financial Independance.
What are your financial goals?
