Family, Frugal & Home Goals For January {2019}

Setting goals isn’t something I only reserve for the new year, every month I like to sit down with Chris and plan the month ahead. I’ve always found that setting ourselves small achievable goals each month helps to keep us focussed and on track. Of course we have long-term goals that we work towards each year too along with seasonal bucket lists that we like to put together as a family.

I’m a planner, I thrive on organisation and although it’s not everyone’s cup of tea it’s certainly something I enjoy doing. January is the perfect month to set some new goals and it’s definitely a month that I feel really motivated in. Look out for a post in the next few days about my long-term plans for 2019, we have lots of financial goals we want to smash this year.

Here are our family, frugal and home goals for January 2019.

    I love how you split your goals up into sections, and I think we need to do this. Some great ideas for the month of January, and we have taken 3 bags to the charity shop today x

      I find it so much easier to work through them if I separate them x

    Wow! It looks like you are going to smash this month. I love planning too. If there is a list to be made then I probably have it. 🙂
