  1. Hey david, One of my resolutions is directly related to one of your old articles as seen on my site Live for Improvement. Thanks!

  2. My resolution is to finally save 3 months of expenses in an Emergency Fund (about $10,000).

  3. My resolution for 2009 will be to move to Boston. My goal is to have $5,000 in my “Boston fund” by September. I’ll be making a couple luxury sacrifices and doing some extra work at my part time job but the math works out so it should be achievable over the next 9 months.

  4. I cleared my car debt and I’m paying off a personal loan next month. 2009 will be debt free for me. I’m boosting the e-fund 20% and saving all my spare cash for a house, or some other productive use of it.
