Has 2020 thrown you off your FI course? Today we’re going to tackle how you can get back on and knock out a goal before the year is over!

Knocking Out a Money Goal Before the Year Wraps Up

I’m going to take a guess and say that 2020 has not gone the way you thought it would back at the beginning of the year.

Looking at the first half of the season, you probably remember that we started off the year with some big purchases when we had to replace my husband’s car into we did a kitchen update.

Now, both of these purchases were planned. For instance, we saved up for it. We didn’t incur any debt. But just a couple weeks after we finished the major parts of the kitchen, things were shutting down.

Because there were so many things up in the air and a lot of uncertainty, we’ve made adjustments, definitely got more conservative when it came to any more spending.

We also got a little more cautious with our other goals for the year and put a pause on them until we had a better idea of what’s going on.

From what I’m seeing and hearing from you, you’re kind of in the same boat.

You had a goal that you were looking forward to knocking out this year. But when the pandemic hit, you kind of put pause and you might feel like you’ve just lost your footing a bit and you’re trying to get things back in order.

But with August being almost done, is it too late? Well, the good news is there are 18 weeks left in the year

So if you want to make the most out of this time, then I think you’ll enjoy today’s show.
