This has been completed for a couple months now. We are focusing on our emergency savings, which is now very close to $4000.
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.
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 GoalsI 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.
5. Blog at least 15 posts a month.
My mini goal this month was to not spend more than $60 on Halloween costumes. I was successful!
Gnome Costume $16.49
Professor McGonagall $15.00
The Doctor $17.98
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.
