I class myself as one of those organized people, who plans ahead. And one of those things I do is make plans for what we are going to do in the year ahead. However this year I have drawn a blank, and I have no idea why?
It maybe have something to do with the fact we may put the house up for sale in the Spring. We took it off the market at the beginning of December, as things were pretty dead. We may start looking again in February.
I normally have a plan of action of what jobs need to be done around the house for the coming year. This year nothing?
A couple of things I need to do this coming year is loose some weight, mind you I say that every year and basically get no where with it.
Save money, that's an on going thing. I would like to keep our grocery budget down to $300 a month. I shouldn't be buying groceries for the rest of this month, and my totals for 2008, are an average of $321.39 spent on groceries per month, and an average of $196.24 savings per month. All which is better than I hoped for. I set myself a goal of $350 per month on groceries and $150 per month in savings back at the beginning of the year.
Other than that, I have nothing else planned. I would like to put at least another couple of months money into our emergency savings account.
I suppose until we decide whether or not we are going to move things will be up in the air for a while.
Have you got anything planned for 2009?
