$20K Update - Home Improvements Goal Met!

March 27th, 2013 at 06:10 pm

Another one bites the dust! So excited to be doing so well on our goal list so early in the year! I asked DH what he would like to do with the $250 per paycheck that we had been putting towards the Home Improvements, and he said he would like to keep it going to Home Improvements even though our yearly goal is met. This is money from his Track/Cross Country Coach pay, so I am leaving this up to him. He wants to replace our patio door and also put in underground sprinklers this year, and as other home owners out there know, there is always something to be upgraded or fixed, so I think that is a good idea to keep adding to that pot.

The next 3 goals on the list (Anniversary Cruise, Cushion, and HSA) are on autodeposits that will meet those goals for the year. So for now I am going to be adding to our Vegas fund (trip is in July) to give us a little extra fun money for being so good on our savings this year. After that I am hoping to put the Long Term EF up to $2K (I know this is still small, but we really have all of our ING savings as an EF if it was needed) and then make some GOOD extra payments on the house for Sept-Dec. For now we will keep going with our $400-$600 extra payments per month.
