1 Fully fund our Emergency Fund (Pass) – Completed even though we had to tap into it in July. We have $5000 in our Emergency Fund, I often wonder if we should bump this up but I’m comfortable with that amount at the moment.
2 Pay off Line of Credit (Pass) – Yes! This ties into Goal #4
3 Stay out of debt! (Pass) – Yes! Like I said a few post ago this was the first Christmas in a while that we haven’t had any debt afterwards. Everything was cash flowed.
4 $5000 left on the car loan – (Pass) What a cute goal that we totally blew out of the water. This baby was gone in August and we don’t miss it at all.
5 Plan and pay for
Yukon vacation - (Pass) Yukon has been put on the back burner for now but we were able to go to on a really nice vacation to Vegas in October which was paid for in cash!
6 TFSA balance $10,000 - (Fail) No ; ( Balance at the moment is $3372. We withdrew the money I had in my TFSA to pay off the car.
7 Sell $500 worth of items (Fail?) – I stopped keeping track… I know I am around $400ish for 2015 but to be honest I donated so much I had intended to sell just because I wanted it out of my house. Still made a good amount selling items though. I was able to donate in total about 30 boxes/bags of items in addition to throwing out countless bags of garbage that was just cluttering up our household.
8 Try 40 new recipes (Pass) – I have blown this out of the water. Although I haven’t been keeping track, I know I have tried way more than 40 recipes. A lot of this is due to me meal planning and organizing our recipe book. I’m way more comfortable in the kitchen and don’t get discouraged when recipes don’t work out.
9 Stick to $500/month budget for food (Pass) - Our average was $470 each month. I know I can do better though as it’s been in these last few months that I’ve really excelled at getting our budget way down. This goal will continue into next year.
10 Fully maximize work benefits (Fail) – I only went for two massages this year even though I’m fully covered. Boo-urns!
7/10 Passed. I've pretty much covered a 2015 wrap up in my last post so I won't say too much in regards to that. I just wanted to share my successes and failures for 2015 :)
