Goal Setting Chart

Goal: to save $50 a month

What is in my way: spending too much so I do not have the money to invest (habits I need to break)

How I will achieve my goal:

Step 1: limit restaurant meals to two times a week; buy takeout from supermarket other nights; buy cookbook and pick out one recipe a week to try

Step 2: rent one movie a week, put in briefcase when done watching it so I will return it on way to work

Step 3: limit clothing purchases to $100 a month; watch ads for sales and shop them

What I need to accomplish goal: willpower to change habits!

Timeline for accomplishing goal:

Daily: read newspaper for ads for clothing sales; shop for and/or eat dinner according to weekly plan

Weekly: rent one movie and return it the next day; make a plan for each night's dinner (restaurant, take out, cooking)

When needed: shop for clothes on sale

Monthly or long term: set up investment account, and have $50 automatically withdrawn for bank account each month

What I will get from goal: money to use for long-term goals and/or emergencies
