2013 Goal Setting

2013 Goals...because resolutions are so 2012!

Goal #1 (and this is a big one): To NOT purchase any new article of clothing for myself in 2013

This is a big one for me...I'm sure if I sat down and analyzed how much money I spent on material items in the past year, I would cry! Also, this is goal excludes shoes and gifts for others.

Goal #2: Replenish my savings

After two once in a lifetime trips (Alaska & Peru) this year, my savings haven't been added to as much as I previously planned. 

Goal #3: Eat healthier

Notice I didn't say, "lose weight." I just want to be more conscious of what I'm putting in my body. For now, this means trying a gluten free diet.

Goal #4: Help my sister-in-law's family get their Visa approved so they can visit from Peru

This involves the United States Embassy and the fact that the Embassy has accepted their parent's money/application fee, denied their request and told them to keep trying! 

Goal #5: Give more

Tithe more, donate more to charities...not just money but also of my time and resources.
