2010 and 2011 Goals

January 3rd, 2011 at 05:57 am

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a good start to the new year.

Overall 2010 was a pretty good year for me financially. I do not think that the relatively small amount I have invested in Mutual Funds will ever completely recover but otherwise I've done fairly well. I accomplished most of my goals, paid off the mortgage on my house 11 years early, and saved $1200 towards an eventual cruise to Antarctica.

I finally posted these goals on my sidebar so its easier to keep track and compare them. I did miss out
on one of my regular goals and one of my "lofty" goals.

Now for my 2011 Goals:

- Pay myself back into my savings account the money that I used to pay off my mortgage.
- Put $3000 into a Traditional IRA again.
- Put $1000 into a Roth IRA.
- Add at least $2000 to my Antarctica fund.
- Add $400 to Emergency Fund (At end of 2010 I have $2526 in this fund)
- Put at least some money into my car fund. I have a car fund created at ING with about $25 in it but need to start saving for a future car purchase.
- Go to Scotland for a week in May for a ghost tour and stay a few days in New York city.
- Might have to have another expensive roof repair. Last year or so I had to have half the roof done and was very satisfied. But I think I have to have the rest of the roof done now.
- Take a short trip to New Orleans for Halloween.

Thats all I got. A few things will be easy but some are going to take some effort. I might add a goal or 2 later on depending on how things go.

    Congratulations on paying off your mortgage! That is our goal for 2011. Looks like you have some fun travel adventures coming this year.

    That has to lead to some satisfaction having the house paid off. I really like your travel ideas... New Orleans would be an amazing place to spend Halloween, and I would love to visit Antarctica. In fact, my 5-year-old daughter asked if we could go there "this weekend," and I had to say no. But maybe we can plan it for later! Smile We also have half a roof repaired because that is all that the insurance would cover after storm damage, but we need to finish the other side... Have a great 2011!
