Miss M from M is for Money asked me what my goals were once I become debt-free (next month!). I have a lot of things that I would like to do but this is what I have so far:

  • $15,000 to my Emergency Fund

  • $150/month to my Freedom Account which will cover car expenses, clothing, pets, and vacation

  • Save up enough money for my family's trip to DisneyWorld in December; I'm aiming for about $500 so I have plenty of money. Since my parents are Disney Vacation Club Members , I get my room for free; I only have to worry about tickets, airline, and food.

  • Save roughly $15,000 for my half of our trip around the United States.

I'm going to keep my list short because I don't want to get discouraged. I think this is a good list of goals so far but we'll see if anything changes.

Those are great goals, it's good you've lined up new ones to take the place of getting out of debt. A lot of people end up back in debt cause they never plan for that after debt phase. I'd love to spend a few years exploring the states, for now those goals are saved for retirement. That's what I get for buying a house, no more freedom.
