Recently, many of you shared some of the items you have placed on your “Bucket List” – HERE. Today, I want to talk about some “Reverse Bucket List” items – things I am NEVER doing again.
I was introduced to this concept by my mother when she announced to me that she was never going to a roller coaster park again. She said, “That is on my reverse bucket list. I’m never doing that again.”
It made me stop and think about this from a financial sense. What are some things I am NEVER going to do again?
Here’s the start of my “Reverse Bucket List” …
I’m never going to:
- Have non-house debt again (working feverishly to eliminate the house debt as well!)
- Finance a car again
- Finance anything with 90 days “same as cash” again – it is NOT the same as cash
- Buy something and say, “My tax refund is coming, and I will pay for it then.”
- Operate a single month without a written spending plan for that month’s money
- Miss a single month investing for my two kiddos college and retirement
- Operate without at least $2,500 in my emergency fund
- Buy anything that costs more than $200 without first talking to Jenn about it
