His, Mine, and Our Financial Goals

Before coming up with a plan on how to reach our financial goals, it would make sense to take just a minute to write down and list what goals we have as a couple.

What we've noticed is that even though we may have individual goals, they are still tied to our team effort. I'll show you below.

His Goals

Right now my husband just has one money goal for himself.

For my husband that means emergency fund can cover a job change/loss.

My Goals

For myself, my goal is focused on reducing our debt.

That means we'd have to find ways to increase our payments going towards the loans.

Our Goals

Basically we have a couple of goals we'd like to complete in 5 years (September 2014).

We’ll be documenting our net worth progress regularly.

Just a Note About Us

I think at this point I need to make a confession – we’re not frugal people just to be save money.

We love saving money if possible, but not at the sacrifice of quality and time. Sometimes we will pay a bit more to save us a ton of hassle.

When we share some solutions that worked for us, don't be surprised if they are not the cheapest or most frugal option.

We're looking for ways that we can build our net worth and reach our goals without having to micro-manage. We want to do things we love rather than obsess over pennies.
