December Monthly Goals 2019

Monthly goals for December, here we go!  Last month I diligently tracked our eating out and our grocery spending.  You can see what happened here 

My goal outline is basically the same with a few changes.  Keep an eye on grocery shopping, investigate using cash envelopes to improve my budget and plan for those once in awhile expenses.  

Then, there is a family reunion scheduled for July 25th in Wisconsin.  Time to start planning for travel expenses.  

  • Keep dining out to $150 
  • Track grocery spending this month and keep it closer to $550 
  • Continue to build my eBay business (Here are my 2019 goals)
  • Rebuild  short-term savings account to $ $2000 ( currently at $1070)
  • NEW* Cash envelopes for sporadic money spending categories. 


  • Weekly dinner with grandkids, daughter, and son in law 
  • Have two date nights with my mister 
  • Touch base with my sons with text and or phone calls.


  • Walk at least 2 continuous miles 4-5 times a week. 
  • Lose 8 pounds  
  • Strength training at gym 2-3 times a week 

  • eBay ( List, list, list) 

  • Spend time with a friend (time to use that Disney Pass)
  • Continue to research paternal side of the family  
  • Find a hobby that explores the creative side but does not break the bank :-)  Gardening, rock painting?

Family reunion: 

  • The date is set for July 25th, 2020  in Wisconsin 
  • Air Fare prices 
  • AirBnB options 
  • Coordinate with my kids 

There you go, December 2019 Budget Goals.  How about you?   


  1. This post reminds me that I need to make some December goals. But then I have to look at all the goals that I did not complete in November.

  2. You accomplish more in one day than most of us do in 3 months!
