April and May’s Goals!Posted: April 26, 2012
Medical-2 dental appointments. Check! Totally passed this one.
Medical Debt-$80. We changed everything around. Instead of medical debt, it’s now guy’s student loan. And it has $148 in it so I don’t think it is too shabby but I know that I didn’t put $80 in it. I think it was more around $10-15. So fail.
Car fund-$100. It’s up to $195. And as we started the month off with about zero, I think that was super.
Groceries: to stay at $150 for 2 pay periods. I managed to pass this once but failed it the second time so it’s a half-check.
I had some minor goals of giving what I could to the efund and the house fund. We decided to hold off on the house fund as we felt the car fund needed it more. But I was able to contribute $15 to our efund. It’s not much but I’m confident that this fund will grow—however slow it might grow, it will still grow. I’m shooting for the baby goal of $1k but I know deep in my little heart of hearts that I would rather it be the 6 months of expenses. Which (without taking away any of the extras that I know we would) is roughly $16000. Ouch, seeing that number on paper hurt as I know that we could use it to pay off debt. But I do know that I will be paying off debt at the same time so that kind of helps the ouch factor.
Medical: finish up my dentist appointments! (I have one left for fillings and all that goodness and than just have my biannual cleaning)
Car fund: I’d like to put $90 into this. I have $75 scheduled to go for it so lets see if I can manage an extra $15.
Personal: I am entering my first ever 5k since high school and I really want to do well. Right now I know I can do it so now it’s just working on my time.
Guy’s Student Loans: I would love to get this to $225. That means I need to save $75 for it.
Efund: I’d love to get this to $200. That’s $60. Can I do it? No idea but we’ll see!
I know I have my finished goals and goals up for May a little early but I don’t have another paycheck coming in this month so I figured why not?
