Village Resolutions: Financial Goals

Often we wait until New Year's Eve to make resolutions on important life goals. I was thinking it might be good to review our resolutions throughout the year. One of the major goals that all villagers should consider is:

Set Specific Financial Goals

Think about any unusual expenses you may incur or big-ticket items you need to purchase in the coming months. Start saving for such items now, not when it's time to pay the bill. This is as good a time as any to set an annual savings goal, such as ten percent of your salary.

Do you have financial goals in place? What say u?

Very nice post. It is so important to plan and save for our expenses - and our dreams.

Zhana - I'm witness to the need to get our financial house in order if we ever hope to acheive our financial dreams. I have a half-hearted budget on my Quicken software ... but, I need to do much better about living it!
