Family, Frugal & Home Goals For August 2017

The best thing about setting goals every month is that they serve as great motivation. They also really help with the endless to-do list that runs through my brain every day. July was a very busy month so we didn’t meet many of our goals. That’s perfectly okay though, I will just re-add them to this months list.

August will be a much slower paced month with lots of time to relax and do things in our own time. Weekdays will be spent keeping the kids entertained, in the evenings I will work. A couple of the weekends have been earmarked for decorating and home improvement. The rest of the time we will be working through our summer bucket list.

Here are our family, frugal and home goals for August.

  • Have 2 family days out.
