Review of 2007

December 30th, 2007 at 05:12 am

Well, I managed to meet most of my Goals that I set for the year. Maybe by putting this into writing, it will inspire me to continue on...

Maxed out my 401-K ($20,500)

Maxed out my IRA ($5,000)

Long Term Savings ($9,051)

EF ($3,500)-of course this one fluctuates

Opened an ING a/c ($1,140)

Stayed within my budget & tracked all spending.

Took a vacation to Cabo - but it really wasn't worth the money I spent ($2,000)..Probably will not travel this year.

Curbed my impulse purchases somewhat..although I still managed to spend $750 on clothes, shoes & cr*p for the house..stuff I didn't really need.

Saved Christmas money in an envelope all year and paid cash & came in way under budget--so I have a headstart for next yr.

My workplace has put us into an HSA for next year, so now I have another savings vehicle to contribute to.

Ok, having posted this I will continue on this path for 2008, with a bit of tweaking here & there. All-in-all, I think I did pretty good--thanks to everybody on this board for being here--I couldn't have done it without ya!
