2012 Goals Progress: August
Let’s see how well I did during August:
- Spend no more than $2500 FAIL
Save $3000( We saved $2500! A little short of the $3000, but still pretty good. Trying to build up that EF) Pay $500 to car loan(We only paid $400.) Set up contribution to ESPP(Contribution set!) Workout4-5x a week ( Let’s just say I made it to the gym 3X a week. I fell a little short. But still…progress) Write 3-5X blog posts a weekI consistently wrote a minimum of 3x a week! Make some side hustle $$$I babysat a lot!
- Sell 3 pairs of shoes on Ebay FAIL
- Sell books on Amazon FAIL
I started classes again….I don’t want to go back to school! But I gotta finish this MBA. I’m honestly tired of studying MBA subjects. I wouldn’t mind learning about something else, but international business, economics, and information technology is all getting a little boring. I gotta hold out…4 more classes…I can make it….
I already feel the stress building up. I start thinking about everything I have to do, and I start freaking out! I gotta remember to take it one day at a time, make a plan, and cross out items from my to do list.
As much as we wanted to spend no more than $2500, it was actually a little more. I haven’t added it up, but we bought contacts and some other stuff. Plus, the tires for my car. I’m still extremely proud of us for being able to save $2500. It took a lot of hard work and determination. We are getting better with eating out too! I am brown bagging it to work M-F and so is the Mr.!
We, also, have to pay a toll tag bill from our vacation in SC. I forgot to pay it in early Aug. and now it’s more. $1.25 toll turned into $26 (so called administrative fee…really a paper and a stamp costs this much???) + $18 (that’s how much Enterprise charges us for transferring the toll violation).
Other than that, just trying to enjoy life.
How did you do on your August 2012 goals?
