New Year's Goals

My first goal for the New Year should probably be to stop procrastinating since I’m not getting around to posting this until January 3rd. Since I’m returning to school my financial goals will be limited but I’m making some non-financial goals as well. I had a pretty good year in 2007 financially. Some of my 2007 financial achievements are listed in this post “Saving On Minimum Wage.” Since then my total contribution to my IRA is $1250 and I paid over $2000 total on my private student loan to completely pay it off.

Here are the goals for 2008:

  1. Don’t incur any debt other than student loan debt. -This shouldn’t be a problem.
  2. Improve my blogging- Since I’m returning to school it will be easier for me to access the Internet. I plan to establish a regular M-F posting schedule and do some other things to improve my blog.
  3. Lose 20 pounds-This may have been a goal last year also but I weigh the same as I did at the beginning of last year. I just have to start using the fitness center and cut back on the junk food.

Those are my main goals. There are plenty of other goals I’d like to accomplish in 2008 but these goals come first.
