This Week's Goals & Plans

Ben is gone for the week.  I took the week off from work so that I wouldn't have to jungle so much on my own.  In the past, I would tend to spend a lot of money when Ben was gone.  The reason?  I'd get bored and decide to either go shopping or take the kids out to eat/Starbucks, etc.  I would quickly spend money simply out of boredom.  This week, I am vowing NOT to do that.  I don't want to fall into those old shopping habits, nor can I afford to.  I may have to do a small grocery trip this week, but for the most part, I will be using food that we already have to feed my family.  Here is an outline of my goals for this week:
  • Utilize the food I already have in the house for our meals.
  • Do at least one fun activity with my kids each day (make playdough, make valentine's day conversation candy hearts, make white chocolate popcorn, movie/game/hot cocoa night, make homemade marshmallows for movie night, craft).
  • Clean out my kitchen junk drawers (yes, plural)
  • Make a couple freezer meals (lasagna, soup, brown rice)
  • Exercise daily
These are some of my goals for this week.  I will let you know how I do in the "not spending money" area of life this week.   What are some of your goals?
