February 2018 – Financial Update

I’m a bit late getting this out… But I’m away for work right now, so it’s a little harder to get all my numbers sorted out… And I’m missing some because I have them saved on my home computer… Which is obviously at home…

Anyway…

We are already over a month in to 2018, so it is time to do a quick check-in on the finances to see if I’m on track to meet my financial goals for 2018. Continue reading

2017 in Review: Financial Goals

Happy New Year!

As is the trend in the blogging world, the start of a new year is when we review the year before and make new plans or goals for the new year.  I am no different.  I reviewed my personal/miscellaneous goals already, but it is now time to review my financial goals for 2017.  I’ve been reviewing these every month all year long, so none of these results should come as a complete shock, but it is always good to review and reflect.

December 2017 – Financial Update

I’m feeling a little like I’ll never catch up on my to-do list items, and so the blog seems to always be the things to get left behind… But it’s time for another financial update and review of our financial goals for 2017, so I have pulled together enough for at least this post… So here’ goes…

#1 – Emergency Fund

Another month of successfully avoiding pulling anything from the human emergency fund.  It is still sitting at the happy $10,000 mark.

November was another month of just regular pet expenses, so we were able to add a little to the pet emergency fund.  I’m not sure we will get to the $5000 before the end of the year, but it is still moving in the right direction, so I’ll count that as a positive.

Human Emergency Fund = $10,000

Pet Emergency Fund = $3720 (+$225)

November 2017 – Financial Update

This post was supposed to go up yesterday… But, well, I wasn’t that organized… Oh well.

Time is just flying by… Can you believe that there are only 2 months left of 2017?!?

October 2017 – Financial Update

So, let’s not talk about how I fell off the blogging wagon… again… Let’s just move on, shall we?

Unfortunately, because of the chaos in our house with the renovations, the computer that I have stored my normal spreadsheet with all my financial stuff is packed away in a dark corner of my basement, so I’m going to only be able to give you a partial update here…

Anyway, let’s just get on with it… Here’s a quick partial update on my financial goals for 2017. Continue reading

September 2017 – Financial Update

I’ve got my work cut out for me this month in keeping up with my blogging promise that I made in my last post.  Luckily the first one is an easy one, but I realize I am a day late according to my schedule… I blame the long weekend… It messes with your perception of time… Anyway… here we go… another quick update on my financial goals for 2017. Continue reading
