My 2010 Goals

Best Blogger Tips
So I thought that if I posted them, I would feel that I would have to complete all of my goals for this year. So some of these are for my blog, my family and for just myself!!


*Make it grow- Getting the word out is my main task to make my blog grow. I have added it to Facebook and have business cards coming. I really enjoy finding deals and looking for the best prices and sharing them with my friends and family.

*Get More Followers- I would like to see more of my friends and family using coupons and getting the great deals. Everyone I talk to always says, I wish I could do that. Well do it. It is a little confusing at first but then it really all makes sense and you will see a huge difference in your spending.


*More Family Fun Time- We bought a YMCA pass to give us more to do. If you sign up before Jan 31 you do not have to pay the enrollment fee of $125, plus they offer refer a friend. If you refer a friend and they sign up for a pass, you get a month free. Our girls love to swim so it is nice that now we can swim year round. We have even talked about getting a King's Island pass but with the little one still not 2 yet, it makes it hard to have her still not be able to do too much there.

*Lower our Grocery Bill- For last year on average we spent $80 a week. I would like to get that to $60 but we still have diapers to buy, so that may be hard for alittle while.

*Donate More- I really would like to get into a routine to donate to the Fairfield Food Pantry at least once a month. Right now it is every few months and I feel with all the stuff I get FREE or really cheap we could do more.

*Stockpile More- We have a really good stockpile going but I really want to make it expand.


*Relax and Slow Down- With everyone in the family always having activities and things to do, I feel that we are always on the run. Dance, Cheerleading, Basketball, Soccer, PTC meetings, work, dr. appointments and so on and so on. There is very few moments to really just sit and relax. Even when we are not busy, I feel that I still need to go in fast mode to get the daily things done. So I want to slow down and just relax. Maybe read a book instead of doing that last load of laundry, or play more boards games with the kids instead of dusting the baseboards, it will all still be there tomorrow.
