This is the first and only reminder for an upcoming Finance Friday post. In two days, I’ll have the first of the new series, and I’ll be asking you to comment with updates. Or at least spend some time thinking about how you’ve done.
SO. If you totally forgot that you made goals, or if you haven’t yet made goals, here’s your 48 hour head start!
I spent quite a bit of time reading through your original responses and making notes and thinking and planning. THANK YOU to everyone who commented. I know it can be really hard to put your ideas and emotions about money out there in the open. I really appreciate everyone’s honesty and commitment.
Based on your responses, I can tell you we’ll be covering realistic budgeting, paying down debt, strategies for saving for small and large, short and long term goals, how to have more patience with your finances (and with yourself!), how to keep your shopping impulses to a minimum, and how to at least take a crack at the eternal personal finance problem: how to get more money. Whew.
Stay tuned for the first post this coming Friday, and remember to reflect on your own progress!
