Sustainable Goals/Individual Visions for a Future

July 24th, 2018 at 09:15 am

One of the goals I set for myself in order to build up the savings account/EF was a weekly transfer of $37.50 to the Vanguard Account.

I've successfully managed to do that for five consecutive weeks. I'm hoping to up it to $50 once we are a bit more stable.

The good news is we are close to getting the property tax monkey off the back and are building up the vacation fund for a cruise in late October/early November. I had a discussion with a friend whose a religious DR Follower and she had some words about what Baby Step I should be on before taking a vacation (suggesting financial irresponsibility). My thoughts which I shared on that are a cancer diagnosis changes one's thinking. And DH came through his bout easily (no chemo or radiation/though he had to deal with a subsequent blood clot that complicated things for months). And if I waited until I paid off untold medical bills we'd probably never go on a vacation, and family time away making memories is at the top of the list for us.

So, onward to savings and vacation is what I say.

    Finances are personal and paying cash for a vacation is responsible. Dave agrees with both those! You are doing great.

    Yes I agree paying cash for a vacation is responsible...and you need to do what you think is best for you and making memories are important...so enjoy the vacation

    Glad you are saving for vacation. It sure is nice to have the money ahead of time and not have to pay for months afterwards.
