September Goals, August Net Worth

September 1, 2009

August brought my net worth to $44,354.   My cash gains were primarily just accounting errors from last month getting reconciled, since I only saved $25 in an account that would fall into cash.  My retirement accounts increased by about $2,400, with about $1,400 of that due to contributions and the rest to market gains.  My student loan went down $25 (currently at 0% interest deferment, so that is really money in a designated savings account), and my wedding fund increased by $500.

September Goals

1.  SERIOUSLY meet clothing budget.  I’m getting a dress altered for $45.  I may get some (not too expensive) shoes to go with the dress will be in order.  Or maybe I have some already.  We’ll have to see.  But nothing beyond that.

2.  SERIOUSLY work out 5+ times a week. I don’t have school this month, so this number is higher than usual, but I really want to do it.

3.  Make progress on the wedding. Cake, rings, and invitations all still need to be figured out.  And parental/guest accommodation recommendations.  And…  lots of other stuff.

4.  Cut out going out to eat, unless socially.  Cut out alcohol, unless socially. Both are going to happen quite a lot in social settings this month.

That’ s it.  Those are my priorities in September.  I already have a ton of fun things planned — every weekend except the long Labor day weekend is booked with something I’m excited for!  I don’t doubt it will be an expensive month, but if I stick to this stuff, I should minimize the craziness.

    I see a lot of bloggers do these monthly goals, it’s not something I’ve tried yet. Do you find it helps you stay on track?

    That’s not so bad and you need the dress for the engagement photos anyway 😀
