Do you make New Year’s Resolutions?

I believe in setting goals.  I’m very goal oriented, and it helps me focus.  The end of the year and the start of a new one provides an opportunity to reflect over the past 12 months.  Reflection can be a healthy tool to utilize during a goal setting exercise.  I believe this needs to happen more than just once a year.  A periodic review of the yearly goals should be a vital part of the plan.  I also find it helps to share my goals whether in written form or talking to a trusted friend.  Sharing is a way of making your plans real.  This isn’t a time to be shy!

This year’s number one goal (based on some quick online research) seems to be about saving money.  Here are a few tips to help you save some cash:

  • Make a budget and stick to it
  • Review your all of your spending at the end of the month
  • Take your lunch an extra day of the week and save over $40 per month
  • Make a weekly menu for dinners and save at the grocery store

I’m still in the process of setting my goals for the year ahead.  I will not call it a New Year’s Resolution.  That name makes it feel like a fad.  My goals are real.  I plan on accomplishing each one.  I know you can too!
