2013 Goals Completed!!

December 20th, 2013 at 03:10 pm

All of the goals below have been completed for 2013. I didn't realize we paid off the truck this year. I thought it was the year before! Funny how time distracts from the details.

1) Make maximum contribution to both of our Roth IRA's. And contribute 7% to husband's TSP.
2) Pay off truck loan.
3) Snowflake a Free Christmas with $750.
4) Save $4,000 ($2000 each daughter) for college.
5) Pay for new intermediate flute with cash.
6) Pay for vacation with saved cash.
7) Pay for furniture and landscaping with cash.
8) Increase equity in home by paying down debt and saving for the next down payment.

We do not have any debt for the furniture purchase, which was a new kitchen table and chairs, the vacation, flute or landscaping. We still have $300 on the American Express for my daughter's Washington DC trip in April. I just thought it easy to pay on it monthly since it was at zero percent and I knew I could pay it in full at any time. I'm actually waiting for a reward on the card to apply to the balance, so one reason I'm not paying it off too quickly.

I will do another post about our mortgage progress for the year before year end. Those snowflakes do make a difference!

I wrote a new post over on

Text is Our Money Blog and Link is
Our Money Blog...if you want to check it out. I really want to devote more time to that one, I might need to rebrand it and do different topics than I do over here. If anyone has ideas, or thoughts on it, I'd love to hear about them.

    Awesome work, what a great year! I too want to spend more time on my other blog, but I try to keep it more ... not professional, but more well-thought-out, since I'm positioning it as a "let's share what we learn" type blog, whereas my SA blog is me going "blah blah blah" and micromanaging my dollars and cents and learning things at random along the way. Needless to say, it's a lot easier and more fun to post here! Big Grin

    @BAWW, I must have been really close to paying it off last year.
    @ceejay, I agree it is more fun to post here about the nitty gritty! Glad I'm not alone it trying to figure this second blog thing out. Smile
