Welcome to Mom's Fun Money.  My vision for this site is that everyone learns something new about making money, saving money and just how much fun you can have doing it!  And then, that you pay it forward.

The New Year

Posted by Katie Adauto on Saturday, January 16, 2010 Under: General
Okay, so I am a little late.  We are still only two weeks into the new year!  I thought if I wrote here my goals for 2010 it might make it more real, and I have all of you to help keep me accountable!  I hope you will share your goals as well.  Just click on the title of this post and type away.

I wish my goals were a little more out of the box, but I, like many of you seem to struggle with the same thing year after year. 

1)   Pay down some debt.  This one is number one because I find that I obsess over the amount of credit card debt I have and that is not good.  So I am going to put aside $1000 as am emergency fund, so the credit card will not have to be used, and then start paying down the dreaded card.  It will not be paid off in this year, but just knowing progress is being made will be a good thing.

2) Lose weight - I know, come own now, how original is that?  How about slim down, fit into my old pants, look like I did in high school?  Sound any more original?  I did not think so.  I managed to lose some weight a few years ago, but put it all back on.  So round # (gosh who counts?) ahead.

3) Reach out to others more - Being a stay-at-home mom I find that it is really easy to stay in the house and not come out except to go to the store.  I have committed to being more social and accept the invitations given to me (if they have not stopped coming as of yet).

4)  Enjoy what I have - This might seem easy, but I have the home decorating bug.  I love all the HGTV shows and dream daily of how each room in my house can be transformed.  Now I have already been tested in this early quite severely.  Over a year ago we took out all the carpet in our front room due to untrained animals (yes that means pee) and I have lived with bare concrete every since.  It is an eye sore, embarrassing to explain to others and just darn cold.  In fact, just yesterday I went to a tile store and received a sample piece of the tile I would love to have.  I have put it on the concrete and am waiting for it to multiply!  A friend suggested I should have gotten 2 pieces if that is what I had in mind.  Funny Laura!  So, I will enjoy my concrete, I will enjoy my bathroom carpet (who does that anyway) and be content while watching that credit card debt go down.

So now it is down for all to read.  The year is ahead of me, we will see how it goes.
