30th June 2013 coincided very neatly with the end of the weekend so a new week, new financial year and a clean slate. Time to take a fresh look at the finances and goals – tax, superannuation, savings, mortgage payments and other debts.
Even though we constantly track what is happening with our money, it is good to take some time and look at the big picture. Where are we now and where do we want to be in the future?
By the way, July 1st is also the first anniversary of the introduction of the carbon tax in Australia. This says it all.
And the world is still spinning on its axis.
I’ve just done the exact same thing… haven’t done too badly this year – although I’ve only truly been tracking from January. I’m in a better place, and if I keep it up at the rate it’s going, it’ll only take me… oh, a bit over 100 years to pay everything off!!!!!!
(thank god for compounding payments that mean next year it’ll be more than this etc….!!!)
100 years? At least you have made a start. 🙂
