2012: What a Year

December 31st, 2012 at 01:21 am

I cannot believe that today is the last day of 2012. It has been a quick year with a lot of changes for us. We moved from my mum's to temporary accommodation, then finally to our home now. We also became a family of three when SG was born in March.

Unfortunately, I didn't accomplish the goals I had made for this year. I had to find my entry stating what my goals were, and this was them:

[] Reduce CC2 by half
[] Reduce CC1 by half
[] Car fund to 100
[] EF to 100
[] Savings to 700

Highly unattainable goals since I spent ten months of the year on maternity leave. While on maternity leave I added to my credit cards for things such as car repairs, utility bills that we had to pay from our old flat, petrol and food when we were really struggling. I hate that it's come to this when I was doing so well before maternity leave at the beginning of the year. Oh well, I can't do anything about it now other than not adding to the debt I already have.

This year's goals are slightly more realistic I think. Ideally I would love to achieve them all but the whole point of them was to make them realistic so I can achieve them. At the very least I should achieve my four basic goals.

I need to write down my budget for 2013, and adapt it towards achieving these goals. I'm also going to start trying to find snowflakes to put towards debt.

    Yes! Snowflakes to debt is a great way to start. Wishing you well in the new year.
