It is fun to finally have gone through a whole year and have the chance to look back at conversations 12 months ago and see what has changed.
12 months ago to the day, when I first posted about this, there were still VERY few of you in this community (and yet it is interesting to see that @Albatross is still an active participant after all this time - thanks!!).
Dozens had yet to launch and give you a chance to see Track in action, to invest in Bonds or ETFs via the Invest section, or even just spend money on a Dozens card. This was all still speculation.
I’m not sure we got very far with creating any resolutions to check back on, but maybe you’d be willing to share any plans you have for this year?
My own plan was to make a concerted effort to save money, and minimise my carbon-footprint, on my energy usage. I’m glad to say that my household electricity usage was reduced by around 25% and my gas usage by 15% thanks to investing in solar panels, a diverter, and an efficient hot water tank. I call that a sizeable win.
This year’s goal will be to continue that trend (though it will be harder), and to focus on building a small investment holding that will help me financially, but also contribute to the carbon-footprint minimisation goal (feels good to achieve two goals at the same time).
What about you?
