(I bet that title made you click, huh? I’m not a failure at my non-resolutions that is!)
My New Years goal to Simplify my life is going pretty well. Am I an expert at it yet? Not even close. Here’s a few things I have done so far to help me get the process going…
I cleaned out a few kitchen cabinets that were literally overflowing. I purged a bunch of food that was expired or that I realized we will never eat and reorganized to make things easier to find. Now I don’t dread opening up my cabinets. Win!
I set up a second checking account with automatic transfers from our regular checking account. A small amount is transferred each Friday (Seth’s payday). This money will be used on household projects such re-roofing and re-siding our house. Which will help avoid the, “oh shoot, that’s a lot of money to come up with” Yay!
I have continued to write my to do lists in my planner and then try to get through the items on my list each day. If I don’t complete the item I move it to the next day. Re-writing the same thing over and over from day to day seems stupid to me so I just get the item done so I can check it off. I love checking off lists!
It might only be the second week of January but hopefully I will be able to stick with it. Wish me luck!
How have your resolutions or non-resolutions been going so far?? Any tips or tricks?
