Will anyone here start working on their 2012 goals next week?
We do. For me and my household, I always start next year the day after Christmas.
I am making a long list of things I would like to improve on for next year and I kinda like getting a jump start on it so I don't feel sooo...
A few weeks ago, I was given the heads up that I would be getting getting a layoff notice in the mail. Great. It seems the county I work for is having budget issues. So, unless a different proposal is accepted, there will not be room in next year's budget for my position.
Everything is in...
I've lurked on the forums long enough.
I want to make a public statement.
I have talked about begin debt-free over and over and over threw the years but then I would continue to make choices that did not sit with that idea. Mostly bad financial decisions. But I own those...
How far out do you set goals? Do you write them down somewhere and look at them every so often? Just curious how others handle goals.....
I am a list maker. Hubby doesnt write anything down. I usually check my list a couple times per year, then usually in January I write down new goals and...
I know we are already quite a bit into May, but I am a huge fan of these monthly goal threads. I've detailed mine - anyone else care to share?
- How I eat:
* Eat consciously, eat when hungry and stop when full
- What I eat:
* Eat a small breakfast with pure fruit juice
* Have a...

I can't believe how fast January went! Honestly, I'm pretty excited about it because January = a tough class for me :thumb: We also finished playing "catch up" on behind bills - we're officially in the zone, minus debt. But my first goal...
#1. Open a SAVINGS account. No kidding, we currently...
Okay, so this year I am not going to make resolutions, I am setting goals for myself. And a goal isn't any good unless you have it in writing!
I have been battling weight for the past 17 years and I am so tired of being this way. I need to honestly access how I am doing. I know certain...
Thought I'd start a thread for mini goals :)

2. Finish unpacking from the move.
3. Paint DD6's mirror.
4. Paint DD6's bookcase.
5. Avoid fast food. :)
A few questions we should all ask ourselves as we set our financial path for the year ahead! Happy New Year!
How do I see myself?
Is that how my life is, or how I wish it was?
What are the differences between the two?
How does that affect my spending?
What's my current financial picture...
Well I have to say that 2010 was probably the worst year of my life. So many challenges were presented to my family. I am utterly exhausted. However, 2010 is almost over and I am excited to embrace 2011! Here is an overview of our finances:
We have our $1000 EF!
We paid off $26,000 of credit...
I'm having to re-consider my financial goals right now.....DH and I are having some ongoing intimacy issues and I'm really not sure that moving across the country with him is going to be the best move for me.
If things do change for the better before then, then fine.....I am...
In a discussion I was having on line the word guidelines was brought up, such as family guidelines.
From that time I was wonder what was generally considered the definition of guidelines are they more rules or goals?
I can't find the answer to this question while surfing the net.
What is your...
The more I focused on lack and on what I couldn’t have, the more depressed I became. The more depressed I became, the more I focused on lack. My soul whispered that what I really yearned for was not financial security but financial serenity. I was still—quiet enough to listen. At that moment...
I've reached my 2008/2009 goals (rowing 5,000 m in 30 minutes, ran a 10K race, 7 miles in 30 minutes on the eliptical) and was just thinking of what my goals for 2010 were. I decided mine were to run a 6 minute mile and do 6 sets of 10 situps on an incline table, on level 3, hugging a 5 pound...
