My First Blog Entry

January 15th, 2008 at 03:17 pm

I've been on this forum a long time and have enjoyed everyone else's blog, so I figured it's about time I start mine.

As always for us, January is cut-back time.
We're eating stuff out of the freezer, scavenging for surplus and unwanted Christmas gifts to return, and working on ways to decrease expenditures while maximizing income.

I've been thinking about our financial goals for the year, and here they are:

1. Make a will

2. Save for a new (used) car

3. Keep my retirement planning on track while building up the DH's.

4. Travel more and maybe move.

I did one of those financial calculators at Fidelity for the DH's retirement, and we'd better get him on track quickly, especially if the dollar remains as awful as it's been.

Do I have any good financial news? Well, I took a couple of surveys today, managed another dinner from the freezer, and plan on listing a few things on Craigslist tonight.

I'm happy to join this blogging community!

    I too am looking at setting up a will this year. I would be interested in hearing how you set up yours.

    I am looking at a will where everything goes to surviving suse then to a trust. I am also think that the trust will pay my kid's guardian $x a year, then pay college, then pay out to the chilrdren when some conditions are met.

    But I would like to see your thought process.
