What’s Your Financial Goal for This Week?

It’s Monday, which means it’s time to set a financial goal for the week.

This week, my goal is to figure out how much discretionary income I’ll have in December. As I mentioned in our recent monthly check-in, November was a low cashflow month for me and December is likely to be a high cashflow month—but I need to figure out how much of that money is actually available for discretionary spending.

I’ve got a new budget with my new overhead expenses set up, I have November’s credit card bills to pay off this month, and I want to start refilling my $3,000 checking account buffer. So… I need to do some math.

What about you?
