Now I am free. The downside is I can't afford to be careless with money. Mistakes are forgiven when your next monthly commission check will be close to five figures.
My Frugal Miser's 2010 Goals
- Lose 26 pounds. That's 1 pound every 2 weeks. I need to lose more, but I want to lose weight and keep if off so I'm going to try a more careful approach.
- Increase my net worth by $25,000. In past years this was a cinch. 2010 is a transitional year for me, as I'm earning considerably less at my job.
- Stick to a budget in key areas including food, gas and entertainment.
- Lose the Bimmer. It's the Bane of My Existence.
- Consider moving. I've given a lot of thought to moving to the Tampa area over the last few months. I'm not there yet, so I want to carefully lay out the pros and cons of this and, if I decide to move forward, I want to execute on this by yearend.
