Family, Frugal & Home Goals For October

September was an extremely busy month and although we met quite a lot of our family goals we still had a few remaining so I’m tagging them on to October. I want to focus on deep cleaning each room one at a time now that I’ve finished decluttering and I also want to concentrate on improving our health.

Here are our family, frugal and home goals for October 2016.



  • Celebrate Chris’s birthday
  • Have at least two days out as a family.
  • Watch child friendly Halloween films together.
  • Celebrate Halloween.
  • Make an Autumn bucket list.
  • Finish Christmas shopping (gifts).


  • Keep the central heating OFF (jumpers, blankets, closing doors, draught proofing).
  • Avoid unnecessary car journeys.
  • Meal plan
  • Pay £70 extra towards the credit card debt.
  • Line dry.
  • Get to cashing out point on survey sites.


  • Paint bathroom radiator
  • Mow & tidy gardens.
  • Deep clean kitchen.
  • Deep clean living room.
  • Deep clean hall.

I’ve kept the lists short and manageable for October as we do have some weekends taken up with events. What are your plans for this month ? do you find it helpful to set yourself goals ? leave me a comment I love hearing from you.
