I like goals. They give me something to aim for and pride when I reach them. Since we are half way through the year, I think it's time for me to set myself some goals for the rest of the year.
I will get my net worth down to -$28,000.
That means I must knock a lot of money off of my debt and increase my savings. It's quite an ambitious goal, but I need to reach high.
I can do this by meeting the following goals:
I will carry a $0 balance on my American Express card by the end of the year. I will also consider closing the account.
I will have $1000 in my savings accounts. This should be split between my Freelance account and my Emergency account.
I will have my Prosper Loan down to $2,000.
I will carry a $0 balance on my Banana Republic Card.
I will earn a minimum of $200 extra per month outside of my regular pay checks. This is an adjustable goal. If I hit $200 two months in a row, the goal will increase.
These goals are important and attainable. I just have to work hard, spend little, and keep on top of things.
