I know I’ve been quiet (it’s a good thing, though), but it’s been a crazy lead-in to 2015! One of my plans for the blog was to write about my money goals for 2015 and how I planned to reach them. Consider this the first one! 🙂 Here we go!
2015 Money Goal Plan of Action #1
The first goal on my list this year was:
- Add $500 to my ‘slush fund’ savings account.
Like I have mentioned in the past, I have some money in savings (enough? Debatable!). I have always thought I could and should be more conscious in this area. With that, let’s look at how I plan to get to a solid $500 saved.
- Make a bi-weekly contribution from my paycheck – I already do this automatically. I set it and forget it, super easy! If I up my bi-weekly contribution by just $5, I will reach this pretty quickly.
- All blog proceeds go directly into savings account – This can actually happen! People are clicking on my affiliate links and buying things or visiting my sponsor ads! I’ll take the small revenue derived from my blog and deposit directly into savings. Also, I figure that it might be helpful come tax time (should I make that much from this blog) to have the proceeds in saving, at least while this is new.
I’m sure I could come up with some more ideas, but these are small and something I can easily commit to. If I come up with another winning choice for this list, I’ll keep you posted.
I’m looking forward to sharing my plans and ideas for some of the other goals, hopefully. I want to have those up this week and maybe next week!
