2009 Wrap Up

December 29th, 2009 at 09:04 pm

Tomorrow my last paycheck for the year is deposited into my account. And since I'm able to check the amount that is deposited before hand, I can run the numbers for my accounts and see where I landed on my goals for the year.

Savings #1: $9959
Savings #2: $3668
Savings #3: $1300

Roth IRA 2009 Contributions: $1800 (still contributing for 2009 until April)

Credit Card = ZERO
Student Loan = $12,245

2009 Savings 1-3 TOTAL = 14,927
2009 Savings 1-3 GOAL = 16,500
90.46% to goal. Shoot so close yet so far. Oh well. I still think I did pretty well considering that I took 3 months off in the year April-June to go back to Virginia.

I don't think I'm going to do specific goals for just 2010. I am just going to do milestones I think. Try to get my accounts to certain levels. I'm thinking +$1000 for each milestone

So for that,
Milestone #1
Savings #1: 11,000
Savings #2: 4,700
Savings #3: 2,300

Not going to even set a goal for paying down my student loan because whatever extra money I have left over mostly goes to extra payments. The overall goal is to pay it back in less than 8 years (since 2 year already elapsed.

Alright time to call it a night.

I probably won't blog again until the New Year.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone! May 2010 be filled with much joy and happiness! Smile
