From 2009-2012 I paid off 28,000 of my own debt. During that time I moved from Long Beach back to Whittier, met the man who is now my husband, and learned tons about how to manage my money. I'm back to blogging now that I'm married and my husband and I work to pay off his student loans. We're adding a baby to the mix this year, to keep things interesting. I don't own a home (and I'm just past 30) but I've come a long way on my financial journey!

2010 Goals Recap
Wow...I had certainly forgotten about some of these. But without further ado...
Goals for 2010 30 Coverage Days: Not sure. Probably not exactly, though I did teach summer school, which is lots of extra hours. I think it's close though. 100 No Drive Days: FAIL. I am currently at 54 and I am hoping for a few more by New Year's, but obviously there is no way I can get to 100 by then. It was an interesting experiment and did affect the way I think about driving my car. No more than 60 days dining out: HAHAHAHAHA. I forgot all about this one and totally FAILED. Only buy books, DVDs, and CDs using Amazon Mechanical Turk funds or Swagbucks gift cards. CHECK! I used Swagbucks gift cards a ton and actually bought very few items for myself this year anyway.
Make $100 selling items on Amazon and Ebay: CHECK! I actually made $328.62 this year selling stuff on Amazon and Ebay. $122.65 was from December alone, which was awesome! I know I have less stuff next year, so I don't expect as high of a number for next year, but I do want to keep selling stuff online. Completely pay off credit cards and save $3,000 in down payment fund by the end of the year. Goal Change! I did completely pay off my credit card in September, and I have paid lots of extra on my car instead of starting the down payment fund. But I am pleased with that choice.
So, that's that. Maybe I should pay better attention to my goals for 2011 so I know what I'm trying to accomplish. ;)
