What I Learned After Budgeting for One Year

6 Things I learned Tracking for 1 year

I can’t believe that I’ve been tracking every dollar I’ve spent for 1 full year. This was my New Year’s Resolution last year and I did it!

So, let’s take a look at the breakdown of my savings/expenses.

2017 Goals!


New Year

Well, it’s 2017.

Most people have started their resolutions for this year, some may have already abandoned them. I don’t have a particular resolution – but I do have goals that I hope to achieve by the end of the year. As you can imagine, many of these are financial. Let’s take a quick look:

  • Grow my savings by $1,000. This may not seem like much, but currently I am sitting in some credit card debt with a trip to Europe looming in the next few months. I have to get dental work which will set me back roughly another $1,000, so I am a bit wary of how much I will be able to put away this year.
  • Eliminate my credit card debt.
  • Lose 8 pounds (to be 130lbs). Okay, this is somewhat unrelated in a way.
  • Have a supplemental income (via this blog or a different work-from-home method).

I will periodically give updates on my progress with these goals, as well as provide tips and tricks to any of you who may have similar goals (which, if you’re on this site, you likely do).

So here’s to a new year, and good luck! Tell me below what your resolutions/goals are! Good luck!
