Goal update

I decided to start setting small goals every month for myself, in the hopes that I would get a few things done on my perpetual to-do list.
My first list, in September, was small but I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't do very well.

1. Get a job, any job.
Well, I had two interviews, and I was supposed to hear this week from both of them, so hopefully this goal will be fulfilled within the next week or so.

2. Spend $250 a month in groceries (about $60 a week)
This was half successful, but only because we didn't do a lot of grocery shopping. It has been an unusually busy month, so there has been more eating out and having bowls of cereal for dinner than I normally like. However, we didn't spend more than $60 a week on groceries, at least.

3. Unpack, put away, and purge if necessary.
More than anything, I wanted this to be done by October, and it was! This goal was a success, with the exception of a few small boxes that I'm not worried about, and the garage. At least the living areas are clear!

4. Send out Idaho reception thank you cards.
Um, big, fat failure. I didn't even get one written.

5. Work out at least 3 times a week.
Another failure, but one I'm working on!

October goals (which will hopefully go better than September's!)

1. Get a job, any job.

2. Plan dinner meal menu every week.
I think the first step to eating at home again is planning the menu. Next month I'll worry about the budget.

3. Send out Idaho reception thank you cards.

4. Walk the neighborhood at least 3 times a week.

5. Donate boxes in the garage so we can park a car in there.

Do you have goals for this month?
