At the beginning of every new financial year we set new goals. Similar to New Years Resolutions. We write them down and set up steps to achieve our goals and work towards achieving them. I find by doing this it keeps all of us motivated and on task and we do not waste money. Does anyone else set up these type of goals?

  • i don’t do the new year’s goals because anytime is a great time to start something! budgeting is a great idea.


  • I try….every year I try. I work out a list of things I would like to achieve in the next year. Sometimes I’m successful sometimes I’m not. But I’m generally happy if I get half of my list done, that’s not too bad


  • Not quite so explicitly, but we generally know where we expect our money to go.


  • I haven’t but I actually think this is an awesome idea! I shall be doing this!


  • I never did it but I think it’s indeed a wonderful idea!!

    • Thanks for your kind comments mom90758! :)

      • You are welcome! So what’s your goal for this year? :-)


  • I would love to start actually putting pen to paper or having a spread sheet of what I want and how to achieve it. It’s a great idea to keep you on track

    • It really does help hopefullyheidi! It keeps me accountable and it is satisfying to tick off the goals too. :)
