Happy New Year! I hope everyone has had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday period.
As we ease into 2016 I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to achieve this year - it is, after all, the time to be making resolutions!
Last year I tackled credit card debt, so this year is going to be all about saving. I’ve got a couple of different goals - short term I’m planning a trip to Japan, mid term I’m looking to pump up my savings buffer for rainy days, and over the long term (long long term, considering the price of houses in Auckland these days!) I’ll be saving for a house deposit.
I found this blog on sustainable saving and goal setting is really useful, especially the advice on being really specific about goals and creating strategies to achieve them.
What are your goals or resolutions for 2016?
