Here are my goals for July:
Bye Bye Costco Membership: We have a membership to Costco that expires in August and we have decided not to renew it. We are trying to save money and that ginormous warehouse does nothing but cause us to spend money. Sure, everything is in bulk and isn’t it awesome that you can buy 40 pounds of dishwashing detergent and 5 bags of bagels for a swell price! But underneath the detergent and bagels is all the other crap that you didn’t go in to Costco for, and that’s what I hate. Costco is impulse spending at its worst. That warehouse and my wallet are cutting the cord.
Attack the Cable Bill: Well, not literally, but you know what I mean. It’s time to go through this bill with a fine-tooth comb and see what it is exactly that we are paying for and what we can cut. I’m not looking for a specific number in terms of dollars, but this bill is too high for my taste.
Attack My Closet: I’m liking the word attack apparently. I’ve lost weight and I have clothes that are ridiculously loose on me. I don’t want to hold on to them as “back-up” clothes because that’s just saying, oh you’ll fit back into that size again at some point. I don’t want to be that size again. I like the weight I am at now, and need some clothes that properly fit. Besides cleaning out your closet is cathartic. And I need some of that right now.
Do 3 Things On My Summer List: I mentioned previously that I made a list of fun things to do this summer, so I want to get started on that. Some are free, like the beach, and others like going to a baseball game, require a bit of dough. We’ll see how the month goes.
Did you set any goals this month?
