1. Supplement my income with my side business. I’ve been working at it, but I can’t honestly say it’s brought in a ton of money so far. I need to treat it like a business and not a hobby.

2. Stay within budget and attempt to save! This normally wouldn’t be a goal, but until I get through my probationary period at work money is going to be TIGHT! If I’m really disciplined I’ll be able to make it through without further draining my savings.

3. Max out my Roth IRA with $5,000 this year. Again, it’s too soon to tell how feasible this will be, but it is a goal…

Eventually I’d also like to:

-Get Lasik done and have no debt (that’d be another $2.8k).

-Boost the Travel fund for some major travel (somewhere in Europe! And perhaps a cruise or two)

Pay off the car completely

-Pay off student loans (current goal: before I’m 40, or 2 years before schedule) (~$26k)

  1. I love your goal for your emergency fund. It’s so key! You have to have one. Mine is only for 3-6 months worth of expenses, but a year would be fantastic! Think of the REAL financial security you would have then. If you lose your job or whatever, you’ve got plenty of time to get yourself back on your feet.

    Great plan!

    I just found your blog and read your goal to save up for LASIK. I had LASIK a couple of years ago and it was the best thing I’ve ever ever done. Of course I was already half blind and couldn’t even go down the stairs without glasses but now, I have perfect 20/20 vision! Good Luck with your savings!! 🙂
