empty white board

November 19th, 2018 at 05:13 am

When we started trying to save for a house these last few months I made up a white board to show our progress but so many things have happened the last few months and we still don't have anything marked off...my lowest amount is only $2500 but just wish I could sign it off everytime we get close we have another specialist appt...so I am disappointed but here's hoping next year we get some signed off...anyone else ever feel bad for not reaching their goals each year...

I set pretty realistic goals so get disappointed when we don't reach them...but there is always another month and I am happy that we we still have no debt except another laptop (which is a DD x-mas present) but that will be paid off next month..so will start the new year debt free

    I think I've gotten used to the fact that any time we get any sort of windfall it gets eaten up with medical bills, so I am a lot more hesitant to even make goals anymore. My goal right now is to simply pay off the mom loan as fast as possible. No time period attached anymore.

    I have been in the barely surviving mode forever. 2019 is the first time we're hoping for thriving mode. (A downsize to mortgage free, a workable budget, saving for retirement at a healthy percentage, travelling more than we have). I still don't know what that mindset looks like. So you have at least achieved something towards your and that is a step in the right direction!

    Thankyou...I am hard on myself and I set goals as it keeps me on track (or is meant to) but I think the majority of medical bills are done and I will just have the neuro physiotherapist to see on a regular basis which is a bit cheaper...but I think I will change the amounts on my board for smaller amounts which will make me feel better.
