What are your simplification and money goals for 2019

Posted by Marko on January 13, 2019 in Off Topic |

I’ve heard many people talking about how they don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. Personally, I like to use the beginning of each new year to set a few goals. Doing this helps me to work toward aspirations that might otherwise feel overwhelming. Goals help me break down larger dreams into bitable chunks I can tackle with confidence.

This year I plan to work towards the following goals:

  • Remain consumer debt free.
  • Continue to simplify by selling or donating excess possessions.
  • Continue to contribute to our car savings until we have enough saved for Kirk to purchase his next car outright. Currently have $4,892 saved. Our goal is $20,000.
  • Raise the additional principal we pay on our mortgage each month. Currently only paying $20 additional per month. Our goal is to pay an additional $1,000 monthly.
  • Increase the amount we contribute to the kids’ college savings. Currently contributing $50 monthly. Our goal is $300 monthly.
  • Be more intentional and consistent with the message I hope to share at Ex-Consumer.
  • Explore the possibility of going back to work full-time.

It’s helpful to write down your intentions. Putting them in writing gives them substance. So whether you share your goals online or in a private notebook, I encourage you to make a quick list of your dreams and goals for this year.
