Goal #1: Get my house clean, organized and to stay tidy every day.
  • Progress: So far, so good. I started this the middle of last week. I assigned myself specific areas to clean every day and so far I've stuck to it. I also made a mini-goal of keeping the rooms I've already clean tidy for the rest of the week so when I get back to that room next week, there isn't as much to do.
Goal #2: Try something new every month.
  • Progress: This month is full of new things. We already took Ben on his first camping trip which was an overall success. Next up for this month are going to a concert with some girlfriends.
Goal #3: Make baby food myself.
  • Progress: Awesome! I've made applesauce and carrots so far. As soon as he runs out of the boxed rice cereal I already bought, I'm going to make my own brown rice cereal.
Goal #4: Clean out the clutter & live more simply.
  • Progress: Just started. I've gone through some of my stuff and boxed up the nicer stuff to share with Susan. The rest I'll donate
Goal #5: Spend less, save more.
  • Progress: Haven't started. July is the month. We're going to try going Monday - Thursday of each week without spending any money. I've made a list of our most commonly bought grocery items to stock up on at Costco and see if I can't reduce our shopping from every week to twice a month. The last week of the month we're going to eat strictly out of our pantry to use up any straggling items so they don't carry over to the next month for infinity and beyond.
Goal #6: Tackle some of those "I'd love to do ______" projects.
  • Progress: Haven't started. We need to plan exactly what it is we want to do (travel to Ireland, travel to Florida, remodel our bathroom, plant a edible garden, etc) and do an honest cost approach for each and start SAVING. Then our dreams can become realities.
So, that's it for now. Wish us luck!
