April Goals

in Adventures, goals

1.      Budget – Stick to my spending limits!  I have limits for a reason and that is to keep my budget in check so I can save for fun things like travel and necessary things like a new computer.  I need to keep this in mind the next time I’m tempted to order pizza instead of cooking what I already have or buying something just because it’s on sale.
2.      Food – Stop collecting recipes.  It’s no surprise that I love everything about food – shopping for it, preparing it, eating it, serving it, you name it, I love it.  And a product of that is my mammoth recipe collection.  Sometimes I get a recipe on purpose, like when I’m looking for a recipe that uses a specific ingredient, but most of the time, I collect recipes that I think I’ll make one day.  The problem is, I have two binders and 4 folders stuffed full of recipes I’ll probably never get around to trying.  So this month, I’m going to stop printing out recipes to try.  I need to come up with meals based on the recipes I already have and turn to my collection first, not the Internet, when I want to make something new.
3.      Blogging – Set aside some time each day to blog.  This was a goal last month, and it needs to be one this month as well.  I have tons of ideas for posts and if I just sit down and get them written, my life would be so much easier.
4.      Social – Stay connected.  I’m an “out of sight, out of mind” type of person.  If I don’t see something often, it’s probably going to slip my mind.  I find this especially true of friends I don’t see or talk to on a regular basis.  I have some very good friends here in town that I rarely see.  I want to do better getting together (or at least talking) with them this month.  There is no reason to neglect good friends.
5.      Personal – Organize my office.  My office is a disaster.  It’s completely unpacked and I’ve organized my bookcase (of course!), but I never organized all my paperwork.  I have a huge basket of paperwork that needs to be sorted and organized.  My desk has also become a clutter spot and needs to be cleared off and put to good use.
What are your April goals?
