Less than 2 weeks to go and its already the month of September. We only have 4 months to go before the end of 2017. Given this time-frame it makes me think about our personal finances: income, expenses and other matters on how we manage our finances. Are you sticking or fulfilling any financial goal or plan that you set out to do at the beginning of 2017? What are you financial goals for the rest of 2017? Photo credit: livestrong.com

I really don't have any goal on saving. But I wish to pay off the debts which occurred due to helping other people. I am really concerned on the debts than anything.

My financial goals for the remainder months in 2017 is to first get my things out of storage, get cable, and put a down payment on a new car. These are the main things that I need to get accomplished this year before it ends.

haven't even had time to think of financial goals as we are in the process of moving and selling our old home. Maybe when we are settled we will be able to clear our minds enough to think about it.

We are good here. We live far below our means, except for the cars my husband buys, but since he pays for them, I am good.

The rest of this year will be almost impossible for me to save, unfortunately. We're saving for a home, have many birthdays coming and then Christmas as well. I'm hoping next year we will be able to save a whole lot more.

I'm the worse in financial goals. No plan at all, I just let it go to my day.

Due to the Medical bills, etc things that were looking up when we got our income tax refund had to go to help with medical expenses for medications, doctors visits, etc. So we are still struggling but keeping positive that things will begin to look up for us, and in time, be back on the positive side of things again. God willing, maybe it can happen by the end of the yr.
