I thought it would be great to post on here periodically concerning my financial goals that I have discussed briefly a couple times in the past.
Last month I laid out a payoff plan for many of our bills and I tightened up our budget so that we can get our credit card paid off and continue to work towards my ultimate goal: A trip to Italy for my 30th birthday and financial Independence. (Read my January financial goals here.)
My first goal was to have my dental bill paid off in January - DONE!
Next goal was to have my husbands dental bill paid off in February. - it will be paid off March 10th! I did a little rearranging because.....
My April goal was to have our Expedition paid off....and I just sent my payoff amount in today! I'm SO happy and excited that we have paid it off early!
Things haven't been exactly how I wanted them to be, I've had to modify our budget here and there, but having a budget makes that so much easier to do. Starting out with the smaller bills in the beginning really has helped motivate me. Now we can really start chunking down our credit card bill as much as possible, and begin to contribute to our savings account for vehicle repairs, and emergencies.
We did come short $330 towards my goals towards the credit card payments, but having the car paid off early will free up extra cash next month to hopefully pay extra.
Thanks for keeping me accountable!
Do you have any financial goals you are working towards? Any dream Italy vacations for you? I'd love to hear them!
