January Goals
Fri, 01-01-2010 - 2:46pm

Do you have specific goals that you'd like to accomplish in January? What are your plans for getting them done?

Here's what I will be working on this month.........

1. Shopping exile. This will include groceries, nonfood items, clothes, etc. In the grocery dept., I will only buy what is absolutely necessary--dairy, fresh produce, to name a few. Even that I want to keep to a minimum. I'll be trying to stay out of the other stores so I'm not tempted by any *deals that are too good to pass up*!

2. Work on the budget to come up w/amounts for monthly vehicle savings & our *itemized savings* for some budget categories.

3. Start on the FAFSA and taxes. While 18ds is home, I want him to finish his part. I'm planning on filing it before our taxes are done; there is a *will file* option. But I'll still need an estimate of our income.

4. Get back into my workout routine. I've been seriously slacking the past 2 weeks. Got a start on this by meeting a friend at the Y this a.m. (It was open for a few hours.)

5. Work on de-cluttering my laundry room.
