Financial Shape in 2008 Check-in




I thought I’d check in for Financial Shape in 2008. This is sponsored by Money Saving Mom.

We had a goal to save money for a new-to-us vehicle. We want to pay in cash, if possible. We did get some savings put away and we also didn’t have to use any savings. None of it was earmarked for a car, but we did get a little put away.

Another goal was to get some health insurance. We got this accomplished. Yay! It does take quite a chunk out of Curly Haired Husband’s check, but at least we’re not without health insurance anymore.

We also wanted to start an IRA for Curly Haired Husband. We didn’t get this done yet.

And we wanted to work on some upgrades and repairs to the house. We were very blessed to be able to find closeout sales and floor models at very cheap prices! We now have a working dishwasher and a rocker-recliner. Before we had no seating other than our couch, so this was something we really wanted. We also haven’t had a working dishwasher in a year, so I’m very thankful for that!

All in all, I’d say it was a good month! Next month, I hope to get some more savings put away for a car or emergencies.
