It has been a long time since I have posted anything about goals of any sorts. Especially financial goals. We have been blessed with an inheritance from my mom's estate which has allowed us to pay off the mortgage on our primary home AND eliminate our credit card debt.
So now what do we do? First and foremost my husband and I need to work together financially. We really never did that before. We both kinds did our own thing. Never good. This is our opportunity to start fresh in that respect. It has been recommended to me that we both attend a Dave Ramsey Financial Peace course. That way someone else ( neutral ) is teaching is about good financial decisions. I think this will definitely help us.
Here are my goals for the remainder of August:
- Enroll us both in Dave Ramsey course. Hope hubs agrees.
- Work to consolidate both of our checking accounts into one.
- Start using cash more than the debit card. This is a hard one for us, but I need to move forward on it. Again, hope hubs is receptive to it.
- Plan a trip to Vegas. I know.... Not the most financially orientated decision, but we have promised ourselves this break since mom passed. A well earned treat for us.
What are your plans for The rest of August?
