2011 financial goals update

October 21st, 2011 at 09:50 am

This was our first year with our first baby, so I am proud that we accomplished these goals.

ROTH me $5,000 funded
ROTH DH $5,000 funded
ESA for baby $2,000 funded
student loan brought under $16,000 mark (will reach that goal in 2 weeks)

all electronics nearing the end of life cycle replaced (macbook, camera, cell phones) Won't need to replace anything next year)

and most importantly, between time off, work from home, careful planning and scheduling, and getting into DH's employers daycare after 18 months of waiting... we managed to cash-flow childcare expenses for 2011 without dipping into savings.

    That's great!

    That is a major accomplishment, definitely, and it's great that your electronics are all ready for the coming year so that will not lead to additional expenses. Did you get the AppleCare insurance for your MacBook? That has saved my bacon more than once.
