Kelly, I'll trade you. You do the decluttering of the rooms for me - and give me those phone numbers so I can do that one for you :P

I think I did decent, though not great.

GOAL: Keep February spending low enough so that Jan and Feb combined average out to be under my monthly limits.

RESULT: I went over $18.56 on eating out, which isn't *too* bad. Of course, March will have to make up for that (and I have gift cards so it shouldn't be a problem). I would have been fine everywhere else - except that DH convinced me that I needed to shop Saturday (still February) instead of Monday (March) after work. So I'm over - but it's all stuff for March so I really don't think that's too bad. And it will balance out in March, I think. Prior to that trip, I had balanced with Jan/Feb combined ($2 to spare for food and $10 for household, lol). All other areas are good.

GOAL: Make my sister's room (and the spare bedroom) more livable and less like a storage room exploded in there. We have furniture that we don't need along with a bunch of "crap" that needs to go.

RESULT: I've had stuff listed on Craigslist and just relisted it today. I also resigned up for freecycle and listed a few items there. I did manage to get rid of a desktop computer and a 32" TV. So I'm getting making progress, but this will be a March goal, too.

GOAL: Use the Wii at least 3 times per week.

RESULT: I have used the Wii for an average of over 30 minutes each day. The one day I missed (due to a sick child that wouldn't nap) was made up the next day.

GOAL: Lose 4 more pounds.

RESULT: HAHA! I lost 1 pound in February. *hangs head in shame*

GOAL: Go for at LEAST a 15 minute walk any day it's above 35* with no precipitation.

RESULT: There were
