Today’s discussion topic should be a fun one! I love learning about what motivates people because it often helps me feel more motivated myself. For instance, I love looking at real estate because it reminds me what I’m working towards and how hard I’ll have to work to make those dreams come to life!
Will and I have always had really open conversations about money and our financial goals, and I’m always impressed by — and thankful for — his financial expertise. We both have savings goals, retirement accounts, and emergency funds that we contribute to every month, and right now we’re most focused on saving to buy a house (in a couple years) and a car (this spring when our current leases expire). And of course we think about saving for future children, being able to take care of our parents someday, etc. Isn’t it fun to be an adult?! 🙂
I’d love to hear how many of you are saving up for home ownership, a new car, your wedding, your honeymoon, or babies down the road… but I’d also love to hear if you’re saving up for something more frivolous/just for fun! I keep telling myself I need to set a certain goal for my business and treat myself to my dream Ralph Lauren Ricky bag once I hit it, so maybe if I put it out into the universe today I’ll actually make it happen! And a few other wishlist items I think are worth saving for… a canopy bed, Chanel ballet flats, a piece of oversized artwork, and a big trip to somewhere you’ve never been! So tell me: are you saving for anything special?
