2007 Financial Goals

I have been putting off my 2007 financial goals because I am not really sure what I want to do.

1. Continue funding DH 401k at 15%
2. Continue to deposit $350 a month into a Roth IRA for me. This is done through automatic deducation
3. Save $5,000 outside of retirement and college saving plans. This will help with a downpayment for a newer car for 2008 and/or bathroom remodel. Will attempt to do an automatic deduction for $220 each payday from hubby's check.
4. $50 each, each month into kids 529 plans-automatic deduction
5. Disney trip need an additional $1000 cash! Use tax return money (and money saved for self-employment taxes)
6. Excess tax return money will go towards new couches first and then some minor remodeling for our family room.

Have a wonderful year. Going automatic is best choice for saving. Try using credit cards rewards for saving. For example, use credit cards rewards toward 529 plan accounts. List of credit cards can be found at
