1. Get Organized.
This week I worked my way through 2 boxes of old photos. I still have 3 or 4 to go through and let me tell you Bob, it’s taking forever.
I think what I’m going to do is wake up, strap on my pedometer, and walk a marathon around town. Just go with the flow you know. No big plan, just get out there and knock 26.2 miles off. I do think it would be wise to do my personal marathon on one of the HH’s days off though just in case I need to be rescued. 🙂 Note to self: There are 50 days left in 2015.
Remodel our Master Bathroom, Master Closet and Monkey Boy’s Bathroom.
Okay, I need your advise. DO you think this floating shelf from the Home Depot would look good above the toilet? It would give me a couple of inches on the sides of the shelf. I have NO IDEA what I would put on the shelf but I know I need something on the wall. Should I spend the $20, or wait for a picture of some other artwork to pop up at a garage sale next summer?
4. Finish Every Room in Our House.
I’m getting there. I really do believe less is more. I’m kind of hoping someone knocks on my door wanting to buy our house and asks if we can close in 10 days or less. I’d be like, sure. I can be out in 2 hours BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE ANYTHING TO PACK. Bahahahaha.
Turn Spare Bedroom into a Cozy Home Office Space for myself.
Create a Vegetable Garden.
Nothing beats freshly dug potatoes.
Build a Path into the Hillside for Easy Access to the Upper Garden.
8. Limit my personal spending to $100 a month.
This week I picked up 3 little vases at the thrift store for $4.32.
I thought they’d be perfect for my primitive hooked rug sunflowers and already listed one set Ebay this week. I LOVE finding random things at the thrift store and then upcycling them.
So far in November I’ve spent $13.78
In October I Spent $128.19
In September I Spent $28.73
In August I Spent $27.29
In July I Spent $50.82
In June I Spent $6.00.
In May I Spent $26.50.
In April I Spent $18.46.
In March I Spent $42.44.
In February I Spent $32.52
In January I Spent $84.33
Purge… Weekly. Find 10 things each week to donate to the thrift store.
10. Read 1 book a week.
Have you read the book Living More with Less? Holy cats there are some seriously good money saving tips in there.
Blogger by day, hooker by night.
My mom called to tell me she was out of jam. 😉 Apparently they stopped selling jam at the grocery store and I need to bring her some. At this rate I’m going to run out before next spring. Eeeek!
Did you set any goals for this year? If so, how are they coming along?
