Three small goals

I’ve set myself a challenge. Albeit a small one, three small goals to achieve by the end of the year. They’re all things I’ve been meaning to do, but never got round to actually just “doing.”

1. I spend a fortune buying lunch. I’m lazy and never plan in advance what I’m going to eat each week. I figured if I saved money by bringing in food from home for each of the days that I’m in work, then at the end of the month I could treat myself to something, a new lippy or piece of skincare prehaps?

2. My second goal ties in quite nicely to my first, I spend money without thinking about it. I dread to think how many times I’ve picked stuff up without actually bothering to check the price. A classic example of this was when I bought a Boots umbrella for Ā£18, the shame! So I plan to take out cash at the start of the month and depend on that for the majority of purchases, money feels much more real in coins than plastic!

3. I have the best intentions to take more photos, but often get side-tracked and forget to whip my camera out. I’m thinking about starting Project Life which will hopefully make me document things more. I’m never going to look back in years to come and say “I wish I’d taken less pics!”

Do you set goals for yourself too?

I’ll report back with how I get on, xo hannah

  1. I am working on all three as well! Its tough because these goals are ongoing and never really end. Rather I hope they become habits so I do them without thinking. Lately I’ve been pretty good about bringing lunch from home- my advice: go grocery shopping weekly and make your lunch the night before while watching TV or listening to music. That way in the morning you don’t have to think about it!

  2. These 3 are part of my HUGE list of goals! I wrote a mini sublist of ways I could be more frugal { http://blog.ispasiyo.com/2012/10/financial-matters-how-to-be-frugal.html } with photography on the other hand, I find that aside from laziness, I tend to hesitate to take my camera out because 1. i get intimidated by pro photographers at events and 2. I get too shy to approach people.

    And ashly’s comment. Make your lunch the night before! Cause with me, I tend to be too groggy in the morning and the last thing I’d want to do in my half asleep state is make breakfast AND pack lunch! Sometimes, if i know the week is going to be too busy, I also freeze soups or stews, for days I don’t really want to cook. šŸ˜›

    • I’m getting much better at these. I’m hoping I’ll remember to bring my camera out with me. (I have a few trips planned to help me practice.) and i am much better bringing food from home into work… Saved loads already. šŸ™‚
