1. Grocery exile, although these three kids are eating me out of house and home! We are not used to being home for every meal, since my kids generally eat breakfast, two snacks, and lunch at daycare, which is provided as part of my payment.

2. Keep CC charges to the limit I set in the budget. I have 5 days to go in this billing cycle, and I have $100, left to spend, if needed. I charge everything for the month, then pay if off. I earn points toward free money, so it works out to an extra $250.00 about every 6-8 months! However, we have plans on Sunday to meet my sister for a fun day, so between gas and food, it will be $100. My kids haven't seen my sis and niece / nephew in a while, so....priorities:)

3. Do (2-4) fun things per week with my kids, without spending a lot of money!!

4. Rip up carpet in living room and lay laminate. I have the flooring, just need some new luan for subfloor.

5. Lose 3-5 lbs......we'll so about this one:(
