The Family Piggy Bank The Family Piggy Bank

Do you make them? If so, what is one that is most important to you?

For me, it is our finances and budgeting. I plan to pay EXTRA close attention to it this year! We have two sons and another on the way, due in May. We haaaave to get money saved, budgeted, and get more financially stable. We are definitely cutting waaay back on our spending as well! This is MY #1 priority this next year of 2013 :)

I want to fix my credit report and get my score up. I am tired of renting. I'm on section 8 so they will help with the mortgage as long as I qualify. I can't even change the blinds without written permission.
My boyfriend and I will be splitting the bills. The parts I don't pay for the bills will go to my debt since I'm used to paying it alone anyways


Quoting BipolarMom09:

Amen, Sister!!! I'm right there with ya! Debt is another one I want to work on. Paying off medical bills, and cleaning up the credit reports! :)

I know what you mean! We have rented since 2008 when we had to foreclose on our home when my husband got out of the Army. I haaaaate renting! We hope to buy another home this upcoming year as well! With 2 boys and another on the way, two dogs, a cat...renting just isn't working well for us anymore :( Plus, if I want to paint my living room bright red and color my walls, I don't want to have to ask! Ya know?

My goal is to have all credit card debt paid off by the end of 2013. We also would like to get a new to us car. And for a personal goal is to lose 40 pounds.

To finally break through that 40-pound mark (39 lbs seems to be my limit these days), lose another 30-35 lbs, and become a "best seller" with my books. Securing an agent would be a nice start.

I don't really have one that has to do with money.

Working off debt is my goal this year too. It was to lose weight but since I wont be having more children, it doesnt matter as much. I also want to start building a savings. I never use cash so I cant save my change but I want to get an account at a different bank that I put at least $10 a week in...its better than nothing.
