Recapping January

January was a pretty good month over all. I did not set goals for the month itself but did meet each of the goals I set out at the beginning of 2011, being:

Get to the end of the month before the end of the money - this was easily achieved

Pay extra toward car loan - I paid $600 on the LOC in January

Continue automatic transfers to long-term, emergency and vacation savings - check!

Buy an investment property. This is not a monthly goal but I did a lot of property searching in January and will be writing an offer on a property this week. This is scary and exciting all at the same time.

I did really well with eBay sales (was not a goal) and made $606.08 extra cash by selling things that were around the house taking up space.

I will be listing more items on eBay and Kijiji.

In the next day or so I hope to post February's goals.
