My husband’s employer keeps throwing us curve balls, and grateful as we are that he even has a job, we’ve decided to stop planning our life around them…..well at least until they make a decision on just how much of the country he actually can cover as one man! I’m saying that, not him. He’s very calm about the whole situation. I can’t blog about it too much, but suffice to say our move south is delayed for the time being!
And so our plans have changed. Again. Or are they just back to where they were? Who knows!
Things have changed a lot for us over the last 7/8 months, and with only a few months of 2013 left, we’ve decided to revise our goals a little rather than keep working towards ones that are unrealistic, or no longer a priority.
New Financial Goals for 2013:
- Reduce our mortgage balance to less than £72,000 – Current balance is £75,950.
- Complete and pay for all house repairs – Approximate cost £4,000
- Spend no more than £2,500 on groceries – Current spend (8 months Dec-July inc.) £1,660.62
That’s it. Just three. Right now we just want to get back on track with killing the mortgage!
