New Year's Resolutions

I usually try to set 2-3 resolutions each year.  In 2011, I resolved to pay off my debt, lose some weight, and organize my house.  I DID pay off my debt, I DID lose weight, and I DID organize my house.  (You may recall my posts from the beginning of the year highlighting the before & after photos of my freshly cleaned abode.)

Well, we moved this year, so I racked up some more debt, gained back most of the weight I lost, and I haven't gotten the new house organized yet.  I'm also expecting baby #3 in June, so I can't expect to lose weight anytime soon.  At any rate, here are my resolutions for 2012...
  1. Get this house organized top to bottom.  I will probably do the 21 day challenge again b/c that is definitely a good place to start.
  2. Pay off my credit card debt (again).  I have one regular credit card & an Old Navy card... and I've resolved not to shop at Old Navy until that one is paid off completely.
  3. Plan more menus.  We eat out more than we should, and I can't even imagine how much extra money we spend when we do that.  So I'm going to plan more menus, try new recipes, and hopefully we'll all be healthier, too!  If I come across any super easy/yummy recipes, I'll be sure to share. 
  4. Organize my photo albums.  I have stacks of photos in various places around the house & I just need to stick them into albums & frames.  It would probably only take me a couple of days if I could just focus.  
SO... What are your resolutions for 2012?

Happy New Year!!


  1. Let me know when you decide to start the organization challenge and I will start it with you!

  2. Me too! I moved this year also and have not gotten organized. My craft room is so messy I am not using it! :-)
