Win $500 CASH towards your financial bucket list
Do I have your attention now? :)
Today I’m partnering with Life Insurance Finder to provide this awesome contest. Life Insurance Finder are a great new company that help you find and compare life insurance policies all in one place and without costing you a cent.
All you have to do to enter to win $500 USD cash is tell me what’s on your Financial Bucket List. You can also blog and tweet about the contest too if you want more entries (trust me, you do).
Here are a few items from MY Financial Bucket List:
- Pay off my $6,980 braces bill. It’s currently at 0% interest. I’ve paid off $2,630 so far, and have 6 more quarterly payments of $725 each before it’s completely paid off.
- Get my Emergency Fund to $10,000. This would give me 6 months of living on a barebones budget.
- Put $3,000 towards my mortgage principal. I’m already prepaying by an extra 20% on a bi-weekly basis, but on my mortgage anniversary date in 2012, I would like to put down an additional $3,000.
- Beef up my Travel Fund. I like to keep a cushion of money in this account in case I ever have to make a last-minute trip, or if a great deal comes up that I want to pounce on. Right now, it’s looking pretty sad since I just booked a flight to Montreal. :)
- Retire early. This is my #1 personal finance goal. I’d like to seriously consider retirement by the time I’m 55.
