My 2010 resolution.

This year, I'm going to be cracking the whip on myself. I have a lot of goals to accomplish, and for all of them, I need to be more disciplined in one very large area of my life.


Yes, I know. Don't cringe, I'm cringing enough for three people.

Pretty much, I've decided that every extra penny is going to be put into savings. Bills will be paid, and we will get a certain amount each month for fun, and that's it. No more. No less.

We reached our limit for this month already by a long shot. Since the 31st, we have spent over $200. Only some of it was food for both of us. Some of it was a game for Andrew's birthday, some was a bookshelf that was on sale and I couldn't pass up. And the rest? I honestly don't remember. It's that bad.

So, no Starbucks or Border's cafe for me today. No lunch at the food court. Nothing, Nada. Zip. Zilch.

I'm also starting a new cleaning schedule for myself. Mondays will be dishes and laundry. Tuesdays, I clean the bathroom. Wednesdays, it's dusting and vaccuming. Thursdays, more dishes and a good clean of the kitchen. Friday will be the general pick everything up day, and the weekends, I take a break, lol.

Let's see how this goes, shall we? Wish me luck. I'm craving Starbucks like you wouldn't believe.


  1. So what day do you blog?LOL! :)
    Do you have a coffee maker? You could always make your own coffee and bring it with you.
    Also you could maybe treat yourself on the weekends to a Starbucks. Don't deprive yourself ALL the time.

    All good goals though. I wish you luck!<3
    I hope you have tons of money saved by December. You will find out you will be a lot free-er when you have a good savings account built up. :) (gets you ready for those kids who come later...:)

  2. To Andrew Happy Birthday! I hope you get your e-card we sent! Love Ya! Vonnie an Kevin Arizona was 70 to day Ha,Ha!!!


So... tell me what you think. Good or bad, plus or minus, negative, positive, irrational...

Go for it :D
