New year - new goals - new ideas - new chances - new beginnings.
I like to look at each new year as a way to begin again. So many gave it a valiant try and then fell off the frugal wagon last year.
Each day, each month, each year is a new one and you have a chance to start again. You only fail - IF YOU DON'T TRY!
We need to challenge ourselves. Try harder. Give each other more ideas. Work together. There truly are no limits to what we can accomplish - if we just try!
Every job - goal - resolution - has one thing in common! It needs to be done - and if you are going to do it - do it well!
I look forward to sharing things I have learned and I look forward from learning from all of you. There are so many ways of doing things and limitless ideas to save and be thrifty.
Life is about absorbing all we can and experiencing and sharing.
I am very excited about the possibilities in 2019!
This month my big goal is to stay out of the grocery store! I have plenty of food here - both freezer and pantry. I want to use what I have. I want to get creative. I want to challenge myself to not spend and save a few dollars.
IF by some chance I do need something (I shouldn't) - I do have a couple gift cards that I can use and not actually spend cash from my wallet.
I have plenty of milk, eggs, butter, cheese, and meat. Pantry is more than full. I have canned fruit if needed.
Perhaps the only thing I might want is fresh veggies for salads - but I can get creative with salads and I have slaw canned. I can use salsa instead of tomatoes. I can make bean salads and pasta salads. I can use canned veggies in new ways.
So folks, let's get this rodeo started!!!! Let us challenge ourselves and each other.
Let us make this a GREAT year!
