Talking Goal setting

Okay, so now that we're all taking a good look at our TRUE financial situations and maybe realizing that it's not as bright as it appears from the outside, let's set some goals.

Getting goals in writing makes them more achieveable.

So---what are your financial goals for this month? (We try to go month-by-month; it seems more feasible that way than getting overwhelmed with the big picture).

Our goal for this month is make a payment of at least $1200 toward our credit card debt.

This might mean that we need to have a garage sale or I need to sell some more slings or do more alteration work for the neighbors. But our goal is at least $1200.

my goal for the month is to not use direct deposit advance...lame goal, I know. But it has become a crutch for us to use that.

My goal is to pay off a $1,300.00 surgery that my dog just had to have. May be a lame goal too but it was a huge extra expense that we didn't budget for.
