The 2014 Snowflake Goal...It's BIG

December 28th, 2013 at 07:55 am

I already know what my snowflake goal is for 2014. It is big! Last year, my initial plan for snowflakes, or money from non income sources, was just $750. I actually exceeded that goal by 4.5 times!! I just wanted that $750 saved for Christmas. I hit that amount in early June. It seems flakes snowballed from there. Smile I would say primarily from credit card bonus rewards. Who knew I would jump on that?!

So the big 2014 snowflake goal is $4000.00. No that isn't a typo! This will be about a 17% increase in my 2013 total, which I will disclose and update at year end. It does feel like a big goal. A stretch for sure, but I really do believe that big goals can be reached, and so often exceeded!

This year, I will be putting all snowflakes towards paying down our mortgage balance. I will still save for Christmas, but that money will come from our regular income. I didn't need $750 this year. Next year, I'm looking to save $600 for Christmas. I will just set aside $50 per month. Easy. Simple. Done!

I know some of you are going to start tracking snowflakes in the new year. Does anyone have a goal for the amount they want to accumulate? What will your snowflakes be used for?

    WOW! that's a huge jump. Will you include cost avoidance like 5% [Target} cash back or 3% from other CC? I've really enjoyed reading your successes. Best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year

    Maybe you'll need to change your name to Creditcardfreemoney.

    Wow that's a big goal. I am using my snowflakes to meet my Canadian TFSA (Tax Free Savings Account).

    I have no doubt that you'll meet the goal, even as challenging as it is. You have proven to be capable of really focusing on one area to achieve impressive results. The snowflakes, the truck loan...

    I set a 2014 goal that's sort of related to snowflakes - by creating them. I will sell 10 items in our home that we don't use. I already have a buyer for the first one - a catcher's bag for a son who's decided not to continue baseball.
