Besides the big goal that we are saving for in 2024, I have another one that I have always wanted to do. Since I do most of our shopping whether it be online or at a physical store, grocery store, drug store, restaurant, or take out, etc., I am never going to pay full price for anything in 2024.
If I can’t buy it on sale, on clearance, with a coupon, or a gift card that I already have or is free to me, points that I have earned for gasoline, or on Amazon, etc., I will not buy it.
Exceptions would be a car repair or maintenance or a home repair or maintenance. We also have a home garden to finish up. The landscape company will do our spring clean up which is too much for us to do. I doubt that we will get a deal on that. Prescriptions, dental or healthcare is excluded also. Basic everyday bills that we pay are also excluded. But that doesn’t mean that we won’t try to negotiate them.
This totally goes along with my goal to spend as little as possible in 2024. I would like this year to be our best savings year ever. It will be hard since so many things have gone up in price and things like healthcare are going up January 1st. It seems like everything is going up. Soon my car and homeowners policy will show up in our mailbox and I expect that will really increase. And I am sure that the town will up our assessment again. But we are going to try our very best!
Anyone set any goals for yourself for 2024?
