  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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

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