Revised 2009 Goals

January 3rd, 2009 at 11:18 am

1. Get back to a healthy weight of 135lbs.

2. Have $40,000 in my savings by the end of the year.

3. Stay out of debt.

I think that is all for now...

A smaller Christmas...

December 25th, 2008 at 03:10 pm

I decided that I really needed to spend less...actually I decided this back in February when I joined the Saving Advice forums. Christmas was no exception. My sister brought up the idea of only buying for the kids (my nieces and nephews) and I thought it really sounded GREAT!
I decided to set a budget for $25 for each child. I bought each of them a hooded sweatshirt from Aeropostale (they are teenagers - so these were a hit).
It went really well. They loved their stuff and I didn't have to spend a lot.
I'm toying with the idea of opening up a "gift" fund. If I would put $15 a pay (26 pays a year) into this fund, it would take care of birthday gifts and Christmas presents...I think I am going to do this!
