The last several years have been very very difficult. 2012 has been no exception. But instead of looking backwards, I’m determined to stay looking forward.
2013 is my year. It’s going to be amazing.
I’m not really doing resolutions this year. There are some areas of my life that need total revamping. Complete makeover. I’m 30 now… it’s time to live a life that I want to live.
There are a few things that I already know I will be working on…
The Blog: If you’re a reader you know it’s been an extremely rough year…and my blog has been neglected often. I will be coming back with more more more!!! More savings and couponing posts!! More beauty posts…looks and reviews. More Brianna’s Hair Series posts. More Mommy and Home Management posts. More Weightloss Journey posts. And giveaways.
Couponing: Overall in 2012 I did great in couponing. Fell off track a few times but in general I averaged between 40-75% savings weekly. In 2013 I’m taking that up to the extreme! My goals are to reach 95% savings average. I want to find a practical way of keeping up with my savings after each shopping trip.
Myself: I don’t have a weightloss resolution this year!!! I’ve come a very long way this year with my weightloss. I know I haven’t always posted it, but if you know me in person then of course you already know. But I will be doing an update post soon. I don’t have too much farther to go to reach my ultimate weightloss goal, so no need in making that something I’m doing for the entire year. So this year it’s about dressing the part. For so many years I haven’t really bought a lot of things for myself. This year with my savings from couponing and my additional income, I am looking forward to improving myself in the style category. I will be going to the spa for a massage, waxing, facial, a few times also…I deserve it. Clothes and shoes for work, for going out, for working out and the bedroom…it’s time for me to treat myself from time to time…especially since I won’t pay retail! lol
Family: In 2013 I’m focusing on my marriage. I must get into my family planner and stick to a system to run this household. This also includes meal planning. Budgeting. Organizing. I want to put my daughter into an extracurricular activity this year and my son into a good preschool program. I want to go and visit family in Philly this year and have a few beach weekends and out of town trips as a family this year. We’re not going to do the big week vacation this year. Although I am pleased to know that I’m off the week of Thanksgiving 🙂 I won’t be taking the full week…just the last three days. Everything really ties back to stepping up my coupon game to be honest. Because it’s with the savings from couponing that I will truly be able to accomplish my goals this year.
Overall this about sums it up for me. I want to be more, do more and have more in 2013!!! I’m ready for a positive, prosperous year! The best is yet to come!!! Happy New Year!!!
