Well, it’s been awhile.
Between the kids activities, working, and my vow to get off the electronics to spend time with my husband at night, it doesn’t leave a lot of time for this space.
But I am going to try to post more often.
Over the holidays I searched for a 2015 calendar but couldn’t find anything I liked – simple, but with color – so I made my own.
I think it’s kind of fun.
I’ve hung ours on a clip board in the kitchen and have already started filling it up.
In the bottom section (the part that says 2015) we are going to write down something special that someone in the family wants to do. For example, my 9 year old wanted everyone to participate in a darts tournament (at our house) so that will be our special event for the month. Next month, someone else gets to choose something fun. Now I need to go write that on the calendar so I don’t forget.
You can click here to download the calendar for your personal use.
I’ll be back soon to share with you our family words for 2015.
Hopefully it will be before 2016.
Long time, no write.
I took some time off of posting since we got kind of crazy around here and had lots of family come in for a visit.
Hope everyone has had an amazing start to 2011!
We have rung in the new year by staying in our pajamas for two whole days – love it!
Derek and I decided to make some financial goals for our family this year.
Along with those large goals, I’ve made some smaller financial goals for me to focus on. Hopefully, these smaller goals will help us reach the larger goals.
I’m probably going about it in an odd fashion but I think it’s a method that will suit me.
I’m going to make new goals each month in order to save some money. Hopefully after the month is over I will have made some long term changes. You will have to check back every month to find out what our goal is.
January’s financial goal is: to spend $125 less on groceries/eating out a month.
After looking at 2010”s financial statistics I think we spent entirely too much in this catergory. My hope is to carry this into other months but for now the focus is saving on groceries/eating out in January.
I’ll let you know our progress at the end of the month – plus give you our new method for February – it’s definitely an out of the box one.
Have you made any financial goals for 2011?
