Family, Frugal & Home Goals For August {2018}

I’m not sure how we’ve arrived at August already but it’s here non the less. August is one of the months I feel the most productive, with the kids off school I seem to get loads more done. The month also seems to go really quickly, probably because we pack so much into it.

Writing a list of goals every month really does help to keep me focused. I might not tick them all off each month but that’s okay. These lists are also really helpful if I’m ever at a loose end or stuck for ideas.

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


  • Celebrate my eldest son’s 19th birthday.
  • Work though our Summer Bucket List.
  • Go on a short break to Jersey.
  • Visit Liverpool on the train.
  • Have a family games night.
  • Meet friends on the park.
  • Plan our Autumn bucket list.
  • Get ready for back to school.


  • Check survey sites daily.
  • Have 5 no spend days.
  • Look in the charity shops for a dress (I have two weddings to go to this year).
  • Stick to a meal plan.
  • Apply for free samples.
  • Go to the free activity days at the library and local community centre.


  • Deep clean the kitchen and oven.
  • Garden maintainance, weed, mow and plant some new bushes.
  • Clean the blinds and curtains.
  • Deep clean the car.
  • Organise the kids bedrooms.
  • Sort out the shed.

Do you make goals every month ? I would love to hear about them, leave me a comment.
