I’ve set some goals for the next few years based on the idea that to accomplish anything you should set long, intermediate, and short-term goals.  Here are my goals for this year, as well as some things I’ll be working on for the next few years.

Unpack, paint and decorate house.  Start saving up for new windows and kitchen cabinets, and a new washer and dryer.

Finish my book (editing and adding to it) and find an agent.

Pay all of my bills on time and in full.  This should be easier with the jobs Chris and I have, and the holidays being over.

Save our mini-emergency fund so that once we’re totally out of debt (long-term goal) we can save a full 6 months of expenses.

Increase savings for the kids.

Those are the big ones.  Now to break them down more manageable: my next post will be January’s goals.

What do you want for 2016?  It’s not too late to plan if you haven’t started!
