2023 Goals


I haven't really sat down to make any goals for 2023.  I know it's August, but I figure it's never too late. 

1. Contribute $15,000 to retirement with the goal of having $145,000 by the end of the year.  As it stands today I have approximately $138,000.  I do no yet qualify for my firm's 401k plan. 

2. Pay the mortgage down into the $140,000s. 

3. Donate $1500 to charity.   

4. Increase savings to $57,500. 

Do you have any goals for 2023?  Please share in the comments. 


  1. It’s good to hear from you again! You’re doing so well financially & I hope you’ll find the less stressful position you’re looking for. Hang in there.

  2. I don’t think this went through - anyway, good to hear from you again!

  3. I enjoy reading your blog! I'm glad you are back! I only made two goals for 2023: decrease debt to below $13,000 and increase savings to more than $10,000.

    It looks like I will only meet one of those goals. Our debt should be below $13000 when our next credit card statement closes on 10/12, but we only have about $2500 in savings. We will keep plugging away, though.

    Good luck to you!
