2014 BUCKET LIST : NEW YORK , CANADA + SAVING UP

GOING ON THE BUCKET LIST : New York for New Year's? Would really love to go back and experience the Ball Drop at Times Square! Maybe not this year yet (but, who knows? hahaha) but it's definitely going on my long term bucket list. :) I love traveling, and hope to be able to travel more this year. (CDO and Bangkok on this list for 2014!)

Aside from this, goal this year is to spend Christmas with the relatives in Canada. Excited to spend the holidays with my cousins and titos and titas, and excited to see and experience the snow! It'll be a white Christmas, a dream come true! :)

So what a better way to start the year by reflecting, settings your goals, and saving up for it! I am really determined to save up this year! Found a great way to do this, has anyone heard about the 52 week-money challenge? It's a money saving challenge where in you put aside a certain amount of money every week (or for professionals, add the amounts for two weeks and set it aside every payday). The amount varies per week, as it compounds, and adds up. :)

Think of that thing that you want to save up for (it'll make you more determined, and will give you that drive to save!) : a trip to your dream destination abroad (or local), your dream gadget, a shopping spree, investing in stocks, or just the satisfaction of having all that moolah in your account (good too for emergencies, for future expenses, or just keep on going so you'll have a head start on your future retirement fund. :) Just think of that 60K that you'll be having by the end of the year! 

What a great way to start the year by aligning your goals and your finances, so that we can honor God through the way we handle our money this 2014. :) 

Will probably start adding to this bucket list in the next weeks. Am thinking of all the stuff that I want to accomplish this year. I am super excited for 2014!
