January 2016 Goals

It feels good to be getting back to blogging! I've missed it!

This month, I have a few goals I'd like to accomplish.

1. Read one book. I started reading "What I  Talk About When I Talk About Running" by Haruki Murakmi today. So far, I'm enjoying it. It's not exactly a light read, but it's thought-provoking.

2. Clean out the cabinets in our laundry room. I don't know about you, but my laundry room cabinets are full of all those things I think I'll need one day, things I rarely (or never in the case of my Italian pasta maker) use, and more arts and crafts supplies than one household needs. I want to get our home organized this year and I think I'll do it room by room.

3. Organize our closet. Our closet is another area that needs some organization. Kevin started cleaning out some clothes from his side. I need to do the same, but somehow, everything else seems more fun!

4. Cross train. I run. A lot. I used to do really well about going to the gym to do weights and cross train, but with the busyness of life, that's gone by the wayside. This month, I want to get back to it.

5. Read my Bible and pray daily.

6. Start saving for Christmas. I read something a few days ago about how you should start buying gift cards each month to use for Christmas. I think that sounds like a good idea!

7. Try a new recipe each week. One of my Christmas gifts was Ree Drummond's new cookbook and I've already put it to use!

What are your goals for January?

These are great goals! I like the idea of setting monthly goals - it seems more attainable than setting a year-long goal!

I love those goals, especially the one about already starting to save for next Christmas! I know you will meet all your goals, plus even more! You seem like a very determined person! :)
