A New Year

A new year marks the beginning of my month long challenge with Carla at Half Dozen Daily and her goals for us this week is:
"Financial Goal Week One: Instead of buying something you need this week, find a way to "make do". Do you grab a coffee each day on the way to work? can you brew at home & use a travel mug? Run out of an ingredient for a recipe? Can you find a substitution? There are many ways to "make do" each & every day... track how much you would have spent."

I'll have to be creative this week as there are many days where I don't spend any money on anything so I'll have to see just how I make do with things things this week. I'll work on a list daily to see what I come up with!

Decluttering Goal Week One: What "thing" clutters up your home the most? Is it clothes? Toys? Books/magazines? Kitchen Stuff? Knick-Knacks? Find a way to get rid of some of these items! Be sure to snap a pic of your declutter!

It used to be clothes all the way but I've done an excellent job recently downsizing our wardrobes. I think both the clothing and books and toys could still be downsized more. Will snap a picture at the end of the week of everything in my donation bag.
