Home > Goals

Next month -- when I have some cash again -- I have some goals.

My first goal -- I will NOT raid my savings accounts. My emergency account will be for EMERGENCIES. My home improvement account will be for HOME IMPROVEMENT.

My second goal -- I will not charge anything on my credit cards.

My third goal -- at the end of each day I will save all my $1 bills in a change jar -- I guess it will be my bill jar.

Sounds simple? It is, but I am already shaking in my boots; afraid I can't do it. Oh well, I still have half a month just to ruminate!

    Good goals! I think I'm going to join you on not putting anything on my credit card for the month...ready for a challenge?

    Why start all these at the beginning of the month? Why not start on one or two of them now so you don't feel so overwhelmed?

    Good goals. Remember that you do the best you can. Nothing on the cards in and of itself is a mightily worthy goal! You can do it!Smile

    Yeah! I'm ready for a challenge!

    I'm starting next month because I get paid at the end of the month and it's when I have money that I run into problems. Right now, I'm out of cash (almost) and my savings accounts are almost empty. But next month I will have some cash and the accounts will have some money in them, because I have direct deposit into the two accounts. That's when it will be a challenge to follow the rules!

    Also, I know that right now, with no cash on hand and two weeks left before I get paid, I will most likely have the use the credit card at some point. So I'm afraid I'd be setting myself up for failure if I try to start my plan now.

    Right now, it's just SURVIVAL!!

    Apologies. As soon as I reread your post, I realized why you couldn't start right away.
