    Default What is your ultimate goal?

    Just curious if the frugal lifestyle is just a temporary means to an

    end? Do you have very specific goals to keep you disciplined?



    I wish I could be even more frugal than I am (my fiance and I LOVE

    going out to eat, etc.). I would love to pay off my mortgage and have

    us have zero debt so we can become rich! I want us to become a power

    couple. It would be so cool to throw paychecks in the bank.



    My ultimate goal would be a beach house, but those are a million

    bucks. At best, they'd probably drop the price to $800,000. I would

    love to live as if we're on vacation everyday. I wish we could afford

    that!



    It's nice to dream!



    What is your big goal, your big dream? And do you believe it to be

    possible?

    I think our goals change depending on where you are at in your life.

    At one time I too dreamed of the big mansion, big paychecks, etc. but

    of course that was long before marriage or children. Now my biggest

    goal is for my children to stay healthy, survive growing up, and

    become productive citizens. I am hoping that some of the things I am

    learning from the Budget101 site will leak into their brain and just

    become a part of life for them so that maybe they wont have to worry

    as much financially. Of course I am sure that in another five years

    my biggest dreams will change. I do strongly believe that if you keep

    your dream to the forefront you will one day achieve it-but again

    goals change and sometimes you never would have thought you would

    have wanted that "whatever" as a goal in the first place.

    My frugal lifestyle is not temporary for me.

    My Mother was a child during the depression and I grew up rinsing jars and bottles to get the last drop of something out and putting the tiny soft sliver of soap on top of the new bar to let it "stick" so you could use it all. I was given cardboard out of pantyhose to draw on and use for art projects and my "best" barbie house furnishings growing up were made from <SPAN>TP rolls and tissue boxes. We weren't low income- my father taught at a major University. It was just the way we lived. I never felt cheated or deprived and we took trips andhad nice things while I was growing up.

    We just took care of what we had to make things last. There werechurch clothes/school clothes/play clothes. You came home and changed after school- once things were too tight/stained/messy for church or school, they became play clothes. My parents paid cash for cars, paid cash for everything, really. The only thing other than regular light bills/water bills and such I ever knew them to make a payment on was our house- and it was paid off early.

    I'm not nearly as good at living frugal as my parents were, but I'm working on it. We sold a car and paidthe loanoff and have paid off other littlebills here and there since the early part of May this year.. We've been able to pay off over $24,000 in debt so far.

    While that is great, my position is that we shouldn't have had the debt to begin with and we're quite a ways from being debt free even now.But I still have hope that we will be there in a few more years. It is easier to accomplish if both spouses/significant others arein the same mind set and see debt as something to avoid. One of us is not worried about debt, the other one doesn't sleep at night because of what we owe..guess which one I am!LOL

    Ultimate goal? Mine wouldbe to have little to no debt and have the means to help my children and parents (if they needed it). To have enoughto be comfortable in old age and be able to share with worthy causes and people in need (yes, we tithe now..I'm thinking on a bigger scale). For now, I cut coupons, cook from scratch, shop thrift stores and "make do or do without". It's not a chore- it's my life and I like it this way.

    My ultimate goal is to retire young and travel around by
    RV. It’s not looking too promising right now with the prices of
    everything going up though. Lisa

    My goal is to prepare my adopted son ,age 11-for life after I am gone (age

    70now). I just took out a whole life insurance policy that after he is 18

    will pay back / month or if he keeps it will be a good investment in his

    later years.

    Also did another annunity for $100/month that if he keeps until he is

    65=$165,000.00. I try to teach him how to be frugal but able to enjoy life

    w// coupons,rebates,sales,Goodwill,garage sales,estate sales,use it up etc.

    My ultimate goal is to own my own home by the age of 30 along with

    cleaning up my credit. Slowly but surely it's getting done.

    <span style="color: rgb(96, 154, 159);"><span style="font-style: italic;"><span style="font-family: comic sans ms;">I watch the very large Goodwill store here.......how much more frugal can I get? LOL Sears, Penny's, etc. usually have some really great sales. I caught a 90%off sale at The Dollar Store & picked up several items to furnish my apt. For me, at the age of 59 & being on SSDisability for the last 9 yrs. this is a lifestyle! I don't have much choice. That's why I'm so glad I joined this group!

    I wish I could be even more frugal than I am (my fiance and I LOVE

    going out to eat, etc.). I would love to pay off my mortgage and have

    us have zero debt so we can become rich! I want us to become a power

    <span style="color: rgb(96, 154, 159);"><span style="font-style: italic;"><span style="font-family: comic sans ms;">I am trying to start my own business from home & online. I am writing a book. Maybe I will get lucky, eh?

    My ultimate goal would be a beach house, those are a million

    bucks. At best, they'd probably drop the price to $800,000. I would

    <span style="color: rgb(96, 154, 159);"><span style="font-style: italic;"><span style="font-family: comic sans ms;">My ultimate goal is to never have to eat dog/cat food because I can't afford real food. The way the economy is going, one never can afford to say never.

    It's nice to dream!

    <span style="color: rgb(96, 154, 159);"><span style="font-style: italic;"><span style="font-family: comic sans ms;">Yes, I can be successful because I believe I can!

    My ultimate goal is to be debt free and financially secure.

    My hope is to be able to map out exactly what that would mean for me, because at the moment, I have no idea. LOL.
