We revised our annual goals a little last month – it made sense to as things have changed a lot over the last few months.
New Financial Goals for 2013:
- Reduce our mortgage balance to less than £72,000 – Starting balance before September 1st payment: £75,950. New balance £75,400. We’ve now paid off £9,550 in 2013…yay…..and I can’t wait for this to be over £10k next month!
- Complete and pay for all house repairs – Approximate cost £4,000. Ongoing! All repairs should be finished and paid for by the end of September…fingers crossed.
- Spend no more than £2,500 on groceries – Current spend (8 months Dec-July inc.) £1,660.62. I spent £251.30 in August, leaving £588.08 for the next 3 months . Total spend: £1,911.92/£2,500.
Photo taken on my walk along the road to Sandbanks in Poole, Dorset this morning…it’s the only one I took as I was so intent on my marching. It’s a very pleasant area to get fit in
