I've decided to try the February Challenge that Carla, from "Half Dozen Daily" has offered. Signed up & ready to go. Here's all the details: http://halfdozendaily.blog.com/2012/01/25/february-low-no-spend-details/. Have you joined in yet? You haven't?? What's holding you back? Come on, join the party!!
I'm going to do all the areas she's set up as challenges. We purged our house in December, donating 40 boxes of items we no longer use but were still usable & 20 bags of clothes. But there's still some things that could go & I'm determined to get rid of many of the clothes I still have. The 20 bags of clothes was mostly kids clothes. Kent & I peeked in our closets & grabbed a couple of items to add to the pile but we really didn't do a purge. And we're planning to redo our kitchen, so emptying the cupboards more than we did in December will be quite therapeutic!
To date, we haven't actually put our financial goals down on paper so that will be the next challenge we tackle. We have some ideas but there not set in stone which means we're not commited to them ... just yet.
I am not crazy about January & February. Cold, dark, uninspiring months. But January has zipped by & other than one deep freeze for a week, it's been mild & slushy & tons of sun. And February will be filled with events & this challenge, so life is looking up!
