Making Financial Goals (Frugal Friday)

Posted By Jessica Fisher On January 6, 2011 @ 7:30 pm In Frugal Friday | 33 Comments


It’s no secret. The new year is notorious for new beginnings, fresh resolve, and goal setting to get your life back on the track you want it to be on. And money matters are no exception.

Making financial goals is essential to your staying solvent. To paraphrase Dave Ramsey, If you don’t tell your money where to go, it’ll decide for you!

Some goals that we’ve had over the years:

This month one of my goals is to give my pantry a makeover [10]. We’re also trying to figure out where to park our savings, so we’re needing to learn about investing. {gasp}

I am in awe that we actually have two nickels to rub together.

Debt was a scary place to be; I plan on never making that trip again, Lord willing. Praise the Maker, our emergency fund [11] is complete. So, really, the main goal this year is not to buy stuff we can’t afford [12] and to work toward college and retirement investments.

What financial goals are you making this year?
