I want to increase my chances of reaching my goals, so I thought that it would be best to keep myself accountable, and what better way to do that than to share a few goals with all of you so you can hold me to them! :) Welcome to your homework, Peeps! Here goes nothing.
By domestic goddess, I mean that I would like to be better at all things home related. I know that in order to accomplish this, I will have to practice better time management, as I have so little free time as it is. Yes, that means that sometimes, I will have to give up my precious television or catching-up-on-the-magazine-subscription-I'm-four-months-behind-on in order to become the goddess I was intended to be.
Help needed in the following areas:
a. Cooking - yeah, I have three dishes I can successfully make (and that's if I check the recipes a bazillion times).
b. Cleaning/Organization - Okay, I'm sure we can all be better at this, but I know if I could accomplish a better system for myself, it would keep the anxiety and breathing into brown paper bags at a minimum. Just kidding - there have been no actual documented panic attacks associated with having to clean or organize things.

You see, I have discovered that couponing is power, and I want to be better at it! I have done pretty well so far, but there is vast room for improvement. (Have you seen Extreme Couponing? Crazy Town, right?!?!) While I don't have room for that kind of stockpiling, and mine is done on a much more pared-down level, I would love to know that I'm saving money on EVERYTHING I buy. It's possible - inconvenient sometimes, and a lifestyle change - but possible! I really want to be able to save money!
I, along with some girls at work, even started a Coupon Club at our company, and basically we meet once a week to clip or organize our coupons, and share the ones we know we won't use. For example, I don't have any children yet, so I have no use for Pull-Ups. My coworker, though, has a little girl and she's in the midst of potty training. I give her Pull-Ups coupons and she gives me M&M coupons. I think it's a fair trade!
I want to make more time to do simple things. Day-tripping to the lake, taking a hike, having a picnic, laying by someone's pool, taking a drive somewhere, taking more pictures! I want to enjoy the simple things in life!
I'm hoping these are some attainable goals - in my experience, having goals is great but overloading yourself with goals is a good way to set yourself up for failure. While I have way more than three goals currently in my life, I have chosen these three to start with. Once I accomplish these, I can focus on different ones, and hopefully by pacing myself, I can achieve them!
What about you? What goals do you hope to soon achieve?
Until next time,
