Let's see how I am doing with the month ending in a few days.
So here it goes - January goals:
1. Lose 10 lbs. Reassess at the end of the month and set a new goal for February. lost 6 so far so it looks like I am going to fall short on this one.
4. Complete to do list for Carla's January Finance and Decluttering Challenge.
For the decluttering challenge:
B. Clean out the walk-in closet and dressers in the master bedroom and donate the unwanted items.
C. Go through the kids old clothes and set aside for a spring yard sale.
For the low spend challenge:
D. Increase our automated college savings by $50 per month for each child. My kids are in 9th and 10th grade and the fear of tuition payments is starting to wash over me. We have saved a good bit but it is no where near enough. I just don't want them to be crippled by student loan debt when they graduate.
It looks like I am going to fall short on what I wanted to get done. That being said, I still accomplished more than I would have had I not signed up for this challenge. I will still try to cross another thing or 2 off the list before the month ends later this week.
Since I haven't updated I did give silently to someone in need for last week's challenge, but I did not clean out a closet.
For this week I cut down to $65 in groceries and my pantry is in order. It is in order from trying to eat our way through it for the good cheap eats pantry challenge. The extra freezer is looking pretty sparse too. That means I will start February off with some freezer cooking!
