GI Jane Finances

About GI Jane

I am a thirty something female in the military on the road to financial freedom.  I am not at all frugal, nor do I want to be.  I want to be comfortable and most importantly–debt free.  This blog is to detail my experiences with money.  I am definitely not a financial expert.

My 2011 goals:

Save for retirement: Max out my Roth IRA at $5,000.  Max out TSP at $16,500. Total: $21,500.

Save for a downpayment: Save $800 a month. Total: $9,600.

Save 3-6 months of an emergency fund. Save $500 a month.  Total: $6,000.

Save for a car.  Save $300 a month.  Total: $3,600.

Save for vacation.  Save $200 a month.  Total: $2,400.  This a variable since I will take trips throughout the year.

Continue to pre-pay my rental mortgage at $1,048 a month.  Total: $12,576.

Teach Financial Peace University at church I have given up on this…need to take a course in order to teach.  I just do not have the time.
