2011 Goals Update: I'm Almost Finished Edition


Financial Goals

1. Get out of credit card debt. 
This has been completed for a couple months now. We are focusing on our emergency savings, which is now very close to $4000. 

2. Track coupon savings. 
Coupons? What are those? Obviously not doing so well with this one. 
I seriously give up!

3. Save $1200 for Christmas. 
$1200 saved! Completed and the Christmas shopping has begun!

4. Save $600 for 30,000 mile maintenance. 
$600 saved. Whoop! Done-zo! We are going to keep adding to this. We will be buying a needed second car within the year.

5. Save for a new washer and dryer.  
We have enough in the emergency fund. We are just waiting for their eventual turn to worthlessness.

6. Make some extra cash
Thanks to Crystal from Budgeting in the Fun Stuff, I made a smile worthy amount from monetizing the blog and adding in my Etsy and Ebay sales I made a little over $1100. 


Personal Goals

1. Read at least 20 books. 
I have already reached this goal but I did not add anymore books this month. I picked up Pride and Prejudice but I haven't even opened it. I think it may even be overdue. It's been a busy month.

2.
 Complete 4 home improvement projects.

I have been working on a project this month but we are not done yet. Soon, very soon.
     
3. Grow an herb vegetable garden. 
Well, I think the gardening season is officially over. I cleared out what was left and brought in my
pepper plants for next season hopefully.


4. Be nice to the sailor.
I am always nice. :) Really! 

5. Blog at least 15 posts a month.
Owned it!


My mini goal this month was to not spend more than $60 on Halloween costumes. I was successful!
The Doctor $17.98

TOTAL $49.47
  
I can't believe how close this year is to being over. It went by too fast. 
   
It's nice to be on a pretty good track with my yearly goals. I have to start thinking about what I want to accomplish in 2012. You know, besides surviving the apocalypse. :)
   
November's mini goal is to get the better part of the homemade gifts I want to make done. I have started on a few but I would feel much better getting this taken care of before the holiday rush takes over.
