GI Jane Finances

Welcome world!

Today is the day that I decided to share my debt-free journey through this journal. I usually post in various financial boards like MSN’s Your Money…but I need to do more.

* Every week I listen to Dave Ramsey through his online radio
* I’ve read Automatic Millionaire and Smart Women Finish Rich by David Bach
* Listened to Suze Orman
And yet, I am not debt-free. There is not a one-size fit all solution. I still want to enjoy my life and not be financially limited. I am also a single/mid- now approaching late thirties woman, who needs to navigate through this dog-eat dog world (cry me a river, right).

*raises right hand*
I,GI Jane, vow to:
1. Stay the course = knock Salliemae out of my life…forever
2. Sell my dang house (now a rental until this summer)
3. Build up a $12K emergency fund
4. Max my Roth IRA and Thrift Savings Plan (when Sallie is out of my life)
5. Save for a down-payment on my dream house
I think that is enough for now.

BTW, my brother found this cool bird in front of our house…a very auspicious sign!

Happy Holidays!

  1. Have you revisited these initial goals in the blog (or created new ones)? I’m curious to know your progress and it would be a cool “blast from the past” blog entry, haha.
