So, Goal week was last week & incase you missed it you can check out all of the posts by clicking here. Here's an outline of what we learned:
Monday - First, an introduction of what goals are & my 20 before 24 goal book. Then, Amy from A is for Ampersand showed us how to spruce up a notebook to keep all your goals in. She also shared with us that she is a list maker to the extreme!
Tuesday - I posted on setting goals & keeping them S.M.A.R.T. We also saw some cool NOTebooks (notebooks that aren't just notebooks) for this weeks Tempted Tuesday
Wednesday - Megan from Freckled Italian used images from The Wizard of Oz to help us stay positive as we work through our goals! Then some great DIY's & Buys for Dorm Dec Wednesdays.
Thursday - A post on Staying on Track with some links to create a planner & ways to keep organized.
Friday - To round out Goal Week, Friday's post was on Reaching the Top. I posted on how sometimes it's more important to learn the lesson of your goal than to achieve it. Fan Friday's was all about some inspirational & sometimes funny quotes.
In other news, I have found a few jobs....but I don't know which I will take & I have to make sure I can afford the things I need to live. Like rent, insurance, internet, utilities, gas, food, etc. So I think I've made my last purchase for a very, very long time. This adorable hat:
It was $2 on sale at Claire's. I recently saw on another blog about going to the thrift store and spending less than $5 (it may have been less). I think I may be picking up on that little challenge. I probably won't go every week because I can't afford it but I may set aside a little $2 limit to go to the thrift store for a little pick me up you know. And if I want to spend more, I'll have to save some over a few weeks. So all in all it would be $8 a month I can spend at the thrift store. I think in addition to all the money I have to save up...why not start another little something.
I will probably keep track of it all by making a few little envelopes, the old fashioned way. I really like to keep cash handy these days...just to make sure I know what's going on with my spending!
I keep calculating things out on my calculator just to reassure myself that everything will be fine. I know it will!!
How was your weekend?
