Goals for 2013

I had a whole post wrote out with a long list of goals I hoped to accomplish in 2013.  Honestly, though with my husband getting a new job, that will require a long commute and is for less money, our #1 goal is to continue to live within our means.

Our #2 goal is to purchase with cash a new to us fuel efficient car.  Hopefully this will happen by mid summer.  We hope to be able to do this by saving, saving, saving!!  Which leads to our #3 goal.....

# 3 - track our spending.  We have gotten lax at this and I know there is some seepage that we need to plug up

#4- save on groceries.  I plan to do this by meal planning which will include snacks,  cooking ahead as much as I can, using coupons and playing the drug store game and creating a price book.

#5 - I would like to try one new recipe I have pinned on Pinterest each week.

#6 -  Continue to sell our unwanted items and my craft projects.  Once the car is purchased I hope to transfer this money to a Christmas fund.

#7- Take a good look at our bills and see what it is we can really cut and do without. 

#8 -  Set small monthly goals in order to achieve these yearly goals!

I think that all of these goals are attanable as long as we continue to pay attention.

Happy 2013 everyone!
