Financial Goals for 2013
I have 2 major financial goals this year:
1. Add to our emergency fund to get it to 6 months of expenses. We are close, only need to save another $1400.
2. Pay off my student loans. Again, we are almost there, I only owe another $2230.
I think it is very realistic that we will meet these goals and one major incentive I have is that I promised myself and my husband that I wouldn't plan anymore vacations until this is done. I really want to plan something for our 9 year anniversary in October (Yikes! I definitely feel like I'm way to young to have been married for 9 years!) And I would like to take a family vacation to Disneyworld.
When I first decided on these goals they seemed a lot more out of reach. We've made some great progress since the first of the year so I guess I should add saving for the above mentioned vacations.
3. Save $3500 in a travel fund for an anniversary weekend away and family Disney vacation.
