2016 Goals

Okay readers, I have put together a list of goals for myself for 2016.  Some of them are similar to last years goals, but there are quite a few new ones on this list.  

1. Payoff student loan
2. Increase emergency fund to $15,000
3. Save $2,000 towards a new vehicle
4. Begin retirement contributions and save $5,500 towards retirement
6. Begin investing in mutual funds
7. Maintain a $1,000 (work) travel fund
8. Build a $1,000 car maintenance fund
9. Build a $500 home maintenance fund
10. Build a $750 medical fund
11. Build a $500 pet fund 
12. Lose 30lbs!!!!
13. Read 24 books
14. Travel somewhere cool!

Those are a lot of goals and I'm not sure if I am going to be able to accomplish them all. However, I know that I have accomplished a lot this year, way more than I thought possible.  I wish everyone luck in setting forth their new goals and sticking to them in 2016. 


  1. You never achieve anything without some goals. Next thing to do is flesh them out. That is the part I am working on with my goals - the fleshing out. I think it might be a an on-going thing! Great goals though. Mine are similar!

    1. Thank you! I think 2016 is going to be great for both of us! We will accomplish our goals!

  2. Good luck on your goals. I was kind of surprised that you didn't have find a new job in your list. You seem to have a lot of drama there with the firm's owners.

    1. Thank you! A new job is on my mind. I just haven't quite come to terms with what to do. I promised the partner in the Central/South Florida office that I would give her a chance to make things better. She has definitely tried. Things are ever so slightly better. That being said, I haven't determined what is acceptable to me yet, so I feel a bit unsettled as to how long I should give her and what exactly would make the situation tolerable enough to stay.
