Here are my goals for the month of November:
(*) Reign it in: The grocery bill needs to be reigned in. Overhauled, in a sense. We buy healthy foods; it’s not like we are stocking up on Fritos and Hungry Man frozen entrees for some kind of just around the corner junk food catastrophe. But our bill is crazy. Many items we purchase there aren’t coupons for, so it’s not like I can play the coupon game again. Not that I’d want to. *shudder*
So, I am going to keep an eye on what we are spending and see where I can make some cuts and figure out more dishes where I can get two meals out of one. We’ll see how it goes.
(*) Sell some stuff: We have items that we can sell on Craigslist and Ebay. Not only will this free up some space, we definitely could use the cash.
(*) Step it up: I fell off the exercise bandwagon over the summer, somewhere around the time the first mind-numbing heat wave hit our area. Since then, even though it obviously is no longer summer, my enthusiasm to work out has not returned. So I am lugging out the old pedometer and gettin’ to steppin’. This little device, more than anything, forces me to walk more. More walking, more steps, more activity. Something is better than nothing.
(*) Donate books: I have some books that I truly am never going to read again. What better place to give them to than the library?
What are your goals for November?
