Goals For July


Well, I didn't get as much done as I had planned on, but I was no slouch either.  We were busy!  Two of the major things I wanted to get done (chicken coop expansion and compost bin) are done.  And we managed to fit in quite a bit of thrifty fun too!

Went swimming

This is what I have planned for this month:

1.          Make or purchase a gift for someone
2.         Send a card or letter to someone
3.         Family Nite Out or Outing
4.         Be creative - sew or craft something
5.         Do some investment cooking
6.         Go on a hike
7.         Learn to do something new
8.         Take my children out for a thrifty date
9.         Complete a small home improvement project
10.       Try a new recipe
11.        Sell some things on eBay or Craigslist
12.        Enjoy a Family Movie Nite or a Family Game Nite!
13.        Complete a retirement/motorhome project
14.       Donate something (or some things) to the thrift store
15.        Invite guests over for dessert, appetizers or a meal


This is how I did last month:

1.          Make or purchase a gift for someone

4.         Be creative - sew or craft something
5.         Do some investment cooking
6.         Go on a hike
7.         Learn to do something new build a compost bin
8.         Take my children out for a thrifty date
9.         Complete a small home improvement project coop expansion & repair; new compost bin!!
10.       Try a new recipe
11.        Sell something on eBay
12.        Enjoy a Family Movie Nite or a Family Game Nite!
13.        Complete a retirement project
14.       Donate something (or some things) to the thrift store work in progress

Even got some flowers planted

I am very much looking forward to getting some more things done in July.  Time is flying by so fast.  How are things going with you?  Any major, or minor, projects tackled and accomplished?  Any vacations or road trips? 

I hope you are having a great summer.

  1. You checked off quite a bit from last month's list. I need to make a list too. I tend to do more if I can stay focused.

    1. I prefer to mark off everything, but I'm learning to be okay if I don't. ;0)

  2. I started working on a new outdoor dining table for my patio. I'm making it with a pallet I had, I'm hoping to finish it today! I'm sure there must be more I got done but since I don't make monthly list goals like you do I can't remember... that old age thing creeping up on me :(

    1. My lists are just an extension of my brain. It isn't that I'm forgetful its just that my harddrive is full and my RAM is slower than the younger generation. :0)

  3. I love your goals, I may have to copy them in the fall after we've moved and are situated! My goals for this month are to be sure absolutely *everything* is done and ready for our move halfway across the country! Eep! Lots to do!! Good luck with your gaols this month! :)

  4. I think you actually got a lot accomplished this month. :) As for me, I did not get a whole lot done, but hey, my health dictates what I can and cannot do. It is what it is.

    1. Agreed. I find that if I have a really productive and busy weekend, or week for that matter, I pay for it later. Rest up and hit it again. I still haven't learned to pace myself. Frustrating at times, but yes, it is what it is.
