2016 goals, after all

January 20, 2016

I said I wasn’t going to make goals for this year, but I changed my mind. I’m allowed to do that, right? I already knew this, but I was reminded recently that my personality thrives on detailed goals. And since I’m really hoping that this is the year we get out of survival mode, I went ahead and wrote out some ideas. The idea is that by writing them out (and making them visible) I’ll make some sort of forward progress, even if I don’t complete everything. So here are my 2016 goals: Financial Pay off our USAA credit card Continue debt snowball Make monthly budgets Home Declutter/KonMari the entire house Fully decorate & set up the master bedroom Family Have the…

april goals

April 1, 2015

And just like that, the first quarter of 2015 is past. I’m loving this time of year! Here’s a recap of how I did with March’s goals: organize purse – done. I bought this and it’s been perfect. purchase real pajamas – done. I got these and they are super comfy. do another closet and makeup purge – I didn’t get around to it, so I’m rolling it to next month. take a knitting class – done. I love it and when I finish knitting my ball of yarn I’m going to go back to learn to purl, bind off, and read a pattern. complete Friday and Saturday in Week in the Life album – I completed Friday but didn’t get to Saturday. optimize two previous blog…

march goals

March 2, 2015

Welcome March and the beginning of spring right around the corner. I’ve been pleased with how these categories of goals are working out for me. I think they are definitely helping me make small improvements in my life that might not otherwise get done. Here is what I have planned this month. Nagging task: organize purse I don’t even carry that much around in my purse but it’s still very frustrating to rummage around in it. I need a better system, so I think I’m going to try a purse organizing insert. Purchase: real pajamas I have really been wanting some actual pajamas that aren’t sweatpants and a t-shirt, and since I’m basically going to sleepaway camp in a few weeks, I…

february 2015 goals

February 3, 2015

Happy February! I know this is lots of people’s least favorite month because it’s winter with no sign of spring, but thankfully it is my birthday month so I’ve always had a sweet spot for it. :) Here are my goals! Nagging task: replace dead light bulbs This is pretty straightforward, but it’s one of those things that I tend to put off and then when we finally get around to doing it, it makes such a huge difference. Anyway, we’ve got a bunch of dead bulbs right now. Purchase: iPhone tripod I wanted to make my purchase this month something fun, but also that is practical and has been on my wish list for a long time. Since my phone…

2015 reading plans and goals

January 12, 2015

I feel like I’ve been talking a lot about plans and goals lately. I guess that’s normal around this time of year, so just call me cliché! I’m not done yet, either, so I hope you like this kind of thing. (Personally, I could read about other people’s goals and plans alllll day long, ha.) I want to read more this year. Last year I read 20 books which was a huge drop for me. Obviously it was a year of adjustment and that’s fine, but I’d still like to read more. I intend to do monthly book reports this year and hopefully there will be at least three books on each one. Here’s what I’m thinking: Reading challenge: First of…
