Every year I succumb to making New Years resolutions. It gives me the feeling of starting my year off rights. I usually do pretty well with accomplishing my resolutions, so I continue to do them, and this year I decided to share them with you all.
My “New Year, New Me” Resolutions
1.More International Travel
I spent most of 2018 traveling around the USA. I was able to get a companion pass for my husband with Southwest, and they primarily fly domestically. 2019 is the year I want to spread my wings and explore other countries.
2. Spend less money
My goal of spending less money includes cooking more and making my morning coffee at home instead of waiting in a Starbucks line. *I’m going to miss their banana bread* I didn’t realize how much money I spent on unnecessary things last year. That will have to come to a halt this year.
3. Be more consistent with saving
I’m good at saving money, but I slack off during months where I know I will spend a lot of money. I’m going to automatically transfer a certain about of money into my savings each month without me having to do it manually. Out of sight, out of mind.
4. Become more organized
I am a self per-claimed neat freak. I like things in a particular spot, and I can’t focus unless everything is clean and tidy. But there is always room for improvement, especially when it comes to my closet and pantry.
5. Healthier Lifestyle
I know, I know. Health is usually on the top of everyone’s New Years resolution list. I did it last year with my husband, and we stuck with it until about October, and we’ve been rouge ever since. This includes everything from exercising more, eating better (Sorry Chick-fil-A), less stress, and stretching. I want it to be a lifestyle change, something that becomes second nature.
