8.         Make a monthly meal plan for September 
9.         Go to the $$ Store
10.       Try a new recipe
11.        Read a book or write
12.        Family Movie Nite!  Dollar night at the theater.
13.        Make salsa

16.     Repurpose/recycle something  Turned a damaged bed pillow into two pillow forms for throw pillows
17.        Work on our garden
18.       Make or buy and wrap two Christmas gifts  Uuuuuuh, yeah….. okay not so much
19.       Family outing  We went thrift store shopping for treasures and to a state park for a picnic, so we actually got to do two of them.
20.       Bake something and share it
21.       Install light fixture in chicken coop  I'll get it done, I'll get it done!
22.      Wash outside windows  Between the wind storms and the smoke from all the fires I decided to wait
23.     Complete a $5 home improvement project  Planted three azaleas purchased on clearance for $5.07.
24.       Update upstairs bathroom mirror  Ran out of time and dang it! I really wanted to get this one done!

28.       Work on new inventory for Etsy store
29.       Sew throw pillow for my bed
30.       Take some time for myself

All in all not a bad month.  While I didn't get everything done I wanted to I did get a lot done and we were really productive.  I'm going to try and finish this list next month, especially that mirror project.


Did you tackle a big "To Do" list this month?  What types of things did you accomplish?

  1. I can't rival your list but I did clean out a bunch of various containers and recycle them, got rid of more stuff and continue making strides towards paying off our mortgage mega early. It excites me each month when I make the payment to see the balance fall. Silly but I am easily entertained. :-D

    1. I am totally with you on that mortgage. It gives me a real thrill too. Good job on your accomplishments. You did awesome.

  2. I didn't make a list but I did set a couple of goals one is to treat my Friday's off from my day job as a work day for my small business. I haven't stayed completely on track but I still feel good about what I have accomplished. The quick projects are making a dent in the projects I have piled up in the garage!
