February Goals

* Although this wasn't a goal in January, I'm happy to report that we ate dinner at the dinner table 5-6 nights per week for the entire month of January. We used to eat most of our meals in front of the TV so this is a great new development.


Okay-- so now onto this month--

I won't do a working out related goal this month because it probably bores you..
For February I would like to:

1) Complete our Thanks jar! Every day in February, my husband and I will write one thing we
are thankful for every single day.

2) Go out to eat no more than once per week.

3) Track everything I eat in my pointsplus calculator (this is going to be hard, I haven't been able to do this for an entire week- let alone month, but it's worth trying).

4) Spend no more than 80 dollars this month of clothing, shoes and accessories. I know that this is still a pretty high amount, but seriously- I need something a bit more attainable. I bought SIX freakin' pairs of shoes in January. Granted they were all under 25 bucks (with the exception of my anthropologie boots), but it was still 6 pairs. You could honestly get lost in my closet. My closet is bigger than most master bathrooms. I do not need anymore clothes/shoes/accessories.

5) Keep up with menu planning! Menu plan at least a week in advance.

6) Buy no more than 4 items at the grocery store that are not on our list. Clearly, impulse shopping is my weakness (see number 4).

I love number 6. Every week when I go shopping I tell myself "Stick to the list!!" and every time I'm walking back out to my car with a cart full of extra stuff I can't help but laugh at myself... and my empty wallet. I think allowing for a small number of exceptions seems a lot more realistic.

I like how you took your January goals and modified them for this month... making things more attainable! Sound great! Good luck girl!

Love your number 4, shoes are totally my weakness (and love anthropologie!!!! how about that sale today??) but the last thing I need is more clothes and shoes, but does that stop me from "needing" another pair of this or another one of these? I am getting better! January was quite a success, after the anthropologie sale this morning, February isn't looking quite as promising...
