Mid-Year Checkup For 2015 – Why It’s Important To Check On Your Goal Progress

Tips For Setting Goals And Sticking To ThemCan you believe how quickly 2015 is passing by?

We’re nearing the end of June, which means we are almost at the halfway point of 2015.

Since we are almost halfway through the year, it’s a great time to check in on your annual goals and see how you can improve on them. A year is a long time, so you definitely want to do a major checkup on your goals at least once.

Plus, there’s still plenty of time for you to reach your goal. Just because the first half of the year may not have gone as planned for you does not mean that the rest of 2015 has to be thrown away.

You should try to take advantage of the next six months and try as hard as you can to reach your goal.

Varying financial goals (don’t forget about personal goals either though) that you may want to checkup on may include goals such as:

  • Saving more money;
  • Cutting your budget;
  • Earning more money;
  • Paying off your debt; and so on.

Below are different reasons for why it’s important to check on your goal progress. I’ve also included my mid-year checkup. [Read more…]

Living Life To The Fullest Is Something Everyone Should Start Doing

How To Live Life To The FullestToday would have been my dad’s 63rd birthday. Last week, Wes’s grandfather passed away and my good friend found out some terribly sad news about her father. Due to these events, I wanted to dedicate today’s post to these three and talk about how to live life to the fullest.

No matter who a person is, what they are currently doing, how much money they have in the bank, and so on, everyone can start living life to the fullest.

You just never know what may happen in the future, so taking advantage of the time you have now is very important. No one ever wants their life to flash before their eyes and wonder whether their life was meaningful or not, whether they had a good time, or whether they regret past decisions.

There are many ways to live your life to the fullest while also being a responsible person (as you will read below).

The many ways below will hopefully allow you to love life and teach you how to live life to the fullest. [Read more…]

We’re Now Saving Over $7,000 A Year By Becoming A One Car Family Plus Monthly Life Update

May Goals Update 1 7Hello everyone! Time for another life, goals, and food budget update. The month isn’t over yet, but I’m typing this on the 28th and I think it’s close enough.

May was another great month for us. It was my birthday month and I did a good amount of traveling. I went to Utah, Nevada, California, St. Louis, and Gulf Shores in May and had a great time on these trips.

Colorado is still treating us very well. We are enjoying all of the outdoor activities that Colorado offers and everything else around here.

The only negative I can think of from this past month is that our house is still for sale. Let’s hope June is the month for us!

March Goals Update, New April Goals And A Food Budget Update

March Goals Update, New April Goals And Food Budget Update 1Hello everyone! Time for another life, goals, and food budget update.

March was another great month.

We are still enjoying our new home in Colorado. The weather has been perfect here, with nearly every single day being in the mid-70s. It’s also been sunny every day and I think it’s only rained once or twice. It’s been wonderful!

Our house is still for sale in Missouri.

It hasn’t sold yet, but we did decide to drop the price a little. The house is for sale for less than what we originally bought it for, which stinks but we’re hoping it sells quickly. We have had several showings in the past month so I’m hoping something eventually happens! [Read more…]

February Goals Update, New March Goals And Colorado Pictures

Move To Fruita Colorado Pictures  2Hello everyone! Time for another life and goals update.

February was another great and crazy month for us. We moved to Colorado, we put our house on the market, and it was a great month for business.

Our new home looks great and it’s already starting to feel like a real home. It is a great feeling knowing that pretty much everything is done and now we can just start enjoying our new state.

Also, as I said earlier, our old house is on the market. We decided to list it for now and see what happens. If it doesn’t sell, then we plan renting it out until our neighborhood rebounds from the tanking that it has experienced lately.

We’ve had two showings so far, so I’m not sure what to think. I realize that it’s only been a little over a week so I guess we will see. Please wish us luck!
