How did we do on 2018 goals?

January 4th, 2019 at 10:20 pm

Obviously our year didn't go as planned at all with losing the twins, but here is a check in on our financial goals. Considering all we have been through this year, I really think we did pretty darn good.

2018 Goals

-Pay in cash for Vegas trip - Goal met!
-Keep savings at/above $5K by end of year - Goal met! Savings was at $13K at the end of the year!

-Mom Loan #2 (From $17,327.47 to $10,410.84) - Goal not met as we purchased a new vehicle so we would have enough room for the babies and the dogs, we added the loan for the truck to the Mom Loan.
-Store Loan (From $7,116.12 to $4,078.11) - Goal met!
-Rental #1 Mortgage (From $83,740.75 to $81,520.75)- Goal met and exceeded by $61.84!
-Rental #2 Mortgage (From $149,980.00 to $146,380.00)- Goal met and exceeded by $830.00!
-Our House (From $246,688.21 to $241,855.85) - Goal met!

-STRETCH GOAL Total Debt Balance down to $474K or less. That would be if things go well and we could payoff the Mom Loan. That would put us down $30,852.55 for the year (Currently at $504,852.55). - Goal not met due to getting the new truck and saving for babies and not paying off any extra on debt

-Continue contributing 6% to 401K -Goal met!
-Research and review allocations of ROTH and make appropriate adjustments - Goal not met, just too much going on and it didn't get looked at.

-Be positive and thankful for what I have - Man I tried, but losing the babies really tanked me
-Lose 50lbs - Obviously with a twin pregnancy that was no longer a goal for the year, but I am down 10lbs from where I started last year.

Home Improvements and Rental Updates
-Complete minor repairs at Rental #1 (hole in wall)- Goal met, we got a lot of repairs done at Rental #1 when we had a new renter move in.
-Plant bigger/better garden at new house - Goal not met, just too much going on and it wasn't addressed.
