I'm taking advantage of the recent gray weather to look at next year's basic savings goals.
Thanks to what I thought was a real computer failure scare, I am going to make sure my business working account will cover a new computer way sooner than I had anticipated.
In addition, I want $3000 in my business education account as I have my eye on some future training. My business costs me an average of $516/month.
I'm aiming for $5000 in our cars' working account. All the other working accounts are OK for now. If there is extra money I'll give them a boost.
D told me yesterday that our average monthly expenses in 2011 came to an average of $1380.
This number includes the running costs of all 3 properties (taxes, electricity, water, gas, insurance) and 2 cars (insurance, parking and gas). Not bad.
There will be no changes to our long term savings plan.
