Setting Goals

So I officially have a job. Of course, the first thing I'm doing is trying to figure out how to save all my money!

I tinkered around with my net worth graphic. Though our apartment is worth a chunk of change, I opted to leave it out of the equation. I also only included my own retirement savings, not M's as well. Frankly, gathering the info on my accounts alone was more than enough reminder that my desk looks very Salvation Army. At least the disorganized ones. I really need to get it together...

I'm trying to decide if I should put up my retirement goal, which would only depress the heck out of me, or more likeable goals, like a travel fund and emergency fund. I'm also trying to figure out a new set of goals, so if anyone knows how to set those financial goal progress bars, feel free to hit me up with an email!

Congrats on the job! Is it at a restaurant? And I love the net worth additions...what can I say, I'm like a pf voyeur ;)

And here is progress bar info, courtesy of give me back my five bucks: http://www.licketyknit.com/progressbars.html

You can also view the HTML codes of various pf blogger's pages and modify your progress bars from there. You probably know how to do that, but if not, shoot me an email! I can't wait to see the updates!

Congrats! I hope it leave you plenty of time for your writing as well.

(if you want the debt/savings bars from my site, I can e-mail you the code).
