2019 Goals -Week 6 of 52

This week has gotten away with me. Happy Valentine's Day!

Financial Goals

1. Make a monthly budget and check in regularly.
I set up my January and February budgets using Every Dollar and have been keeping track of my expenses. So far things are running smoothly.
January ✔✔✔✔✔ I checked in 1-2 times a week.
February ✔✔

2. Save $1500 for car fund. $450/$1500
I have an automated transfer set up to save $50 every 4 weeks. I paid my car insurance this week so no saving but I didn't have to take any money from savings to pay for it so that's a plus!

3. Save $2000 for house updates. $450/$2000
My auto-draft of $50 went through this week. Every bit counts!

4. Limit personal spending to $500 for the year. $20/$500
My personal items will include clothes, shoes, cosmetics, haircuts and personal gadgets.
No spending last week. It's about time for a haircut though.
Skinny Jeans $20

Home and Garden Goals

5. Build a new chicken coop.
I think we will work on the coop in the spring or on a warm weekend. My local feed store just posted pictures of some chicks not I have the fever! I better build a bigger coop! ;)

6. Redesign front yard garden.
This will be something G and I do in the spring.

7. Paint trim, ceiling, walls and built-ins in living room.
Okay so this weekend it is happening. I'm getting excited!

8. Complete one large project.
We bought our home in 2015, had a new roof put on in 2016, painted our house in 2017 and did nothing in 2018 besides small projects so we are ready to do something big this year. We have many things we want to do to our home. Attic and crawlspace insulation, windows, driveway, or regrade backyard are some that come to mind.

Lifestyle Goals

10. Try weekly meal prepping for four weeks. 4/4 Complete!
I really liked meal prepping. I didn't get to prep as much this week but I am hoping to start doing it regularly.

11. 30 Days of Yoga. 30/30 Complete!
I followed along the YouTube channel Yoga with Adriene. After I finished my 30 days I have kept practicing but not everyday. I am trying to do 15-20 minutes at a time which is a nice stretch.

12. Travel to a new place.
G and I usually have our annual vacation in late summer or fall. We had a couples trip in early January.

1. The Homestead in Hotsprings, Virginia
