I really hope and pray that these things happen! This is going to start next year (duh):

1. Finish everything involving wedding. Get married/have honeymoon. Save money toward future.

2. Finish degree. Get a job. Begin Masters. Save more money. Fiance going back to school. Pay off debts.

3. Look into getting a house. Fiance may finish school/hopefully gets promotion or better job. Save money.

4. Buy house. Start TTC#2. Finish Masters. Save money.

5. Enjoy life! Save money Laughing. Have baby?!

Five Year Plan


22 (2014): Get Married (March), Finish Internship (May), Fiance graduate (May), Fiance get hired on (law enforcement, hopefully know by May), Move in Together (March), Move into Apartment just the two of of us (May/June), Big Girl Job after Internship (June/July), Loose 10lbs (March), Have a basic emergency fund set up (March), Save up cash for Honeymoon in 2015, Create student loan repayment plan, Make a ‘just the two of us’ bucket list

23 (2015): Go on Honeymoon at some point, Focus on the paying off our student loans, pay off my car, don’t take on any additional debt, have a full working budget, work out regularly

24 (2016): Keep paying of that student loan debt. Potentially start saving up for down payment? Make sure marriage is doing well adjusting to Fiance law enforcement career (they say it’s a marriage killer so Ive been reading and trying to be proactive)

25 (2017): Above, keep/ have majority of bucket list finished, maybe go on a big trip,

26 (2018): See where we are at with Student Loans and down payment, potentially purchase house and potentially start TTC (depends on career factors and money)

This was my 5 year plan made around a year ago, and not much has changed.

Year one (2013) Get married and come out of it debt free (check) 

Year two: Simplify what we own, selling and donating what isnt needed anymore and move into a bigger apartment (extra room for workout equipment saving gym costs), look into and get a new vehicle that suits having a baby better (check and check)

Year three: I go to school the second time around (only a 3 month course) and we then move to a new province (im Canadian lol) for DH schooling (2 year course)

Year four: Hes still in school, I try to get my makeup career off the ground 

year five-Start of 2017: When he gets to midterms in his last year we are thinking about trying for our first (and maybe only) baby then 

DH and I will be on our ninth year together (fourth married) and I will have just turned twenty four (which is fine as I always had a plan in my head to be 23 or close) and DH will be twenty six.

I did that a few years ago on another forum and 5 years later, I was exactly where I wanted to be. Hope it will work as well this time too! We are doing everything in the wrong order but this is our plan:

2014: actively TTC, start a doctorate (me), go in an all inclusive

2015: hopefuly give birth, stay at home with the baby

2016: publish a novel (him)

2017:finish doctorate, decide if we want another baby

2018:finish paying the house, start writing a novel (me), maybe get married?
