April Goals

April Showers bring May Flowers...and I hope it rains money for me in April, so I can water down Mr. Chase and grown some Financial Flowers. :)

Major things I need to pay: birthday gift (x2), bridesmaid dress...that's all I can foresee for the month of April right now. I'll allot $300 for those items, since my bridesmaid dress is right around $200.

April Goals:

  1. Don't overspend. This one is getting old...but as a serious shopaholic, I have to keep it at #1 so it's always fresh on my mind.

  2. Find a side hustle. Something to bring in additional revenue. Right now, it's looking like tutoring. The faster I can finish paying off Mr. Chase, the faster I can open a Roth IRA and start focusing on paying off my car. I've got lots to accomplish in my financial future!

  3. Focus on pushing all extra money towards Mr. Chase. He's almost out of here...seriously, he is. By the summer, I think he'll be gone.

  4. Try to find financially smart ways to cook/eat healthy. I've noticed a few extra pounds which isn't a huge deal since my weight tends to fluctuate but still...I need to start building better habits.

So that's it. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...
