I am 65% of the way towards reaching my goal of saving 20,000 dollars by 10/10/2006. You can check out my chart here… (shameless plug for the NCN Network…) So, it is almost time to reevaluate my goals for the coming year. (My wife and I each contribute to retirement plans, and we will be increasing our contributions in 2007. The following represent NON- RETIREMENT, NON-COLLEGE cash savings, for emergencies and planned purchases.) In our house, our fiscal year actually starts in OCTOBER…
My Goals by Year
[x] Save 1000 dollars for mini-emergency fund
[x] 11,510.22 Debt Re-Payment (Actually completed in February 2006)
[ ] Save 20,000 dollars in a 6-Month Emergency fund (65% complete)
[ ] Save 20,000 dollars in auto-replacement fund
[ ] Make 5000 in new, additional income
