End of September Goals Update - How did I do?
1.) Complete my Declutter Challenge! I am challenging myself to get rid of (at least) 366 items of clutter during 2012. Want to join me in this challenge?
SUCCESS! I hit the goal, stopped counting at 681 items, and know that I have gotten rid of at least 1,000+ items at this point. Woo hoo! And there is still plenty more to go. I started the basement but that will be a long, slow process.
2.) Put $17,500 into my new car fund in 2012.
I currently have $15,965.75 saved in the new car fund. I think I am on target to hit my goal by the end of the year (I am not planning to replace my car any time soon but it is nice to know that I will be prepared when the time is right).
3.) Earn $6,000 in side hustle money this year. This money can come from blogging, teaching, freelance writing and designing, working as a "turker" at Amazon Mechanical Turks, selling crafts on eBay, and any other clever ideas I come up with to earn some extra money.
It hit that goal and then recently upped it to $7500! Right now I have earned $7321.53 this year. This is from doing freelance work, blogging, teaching at a local University, doing Swagbucks, credit card rebates, and selling some antiques and other items.
4.) Clean out my personal email box. Seriously, folks, this almost embarrassing to admit, but I started out with 20,450 emails sitting in my mailbox. By year's end I want to have this number down to a manageable 450. The rest (20K!) will either be filed or deleted.
I ought to just take this one off the list. it just isn't going to happen this year. I get a big old red "F" on this assignment.
5.) Get an average of five servings of fruits and veggies a day. I want to be healthy, and so it is time I step up my game in this regard and focus more on getting the right balance of food in my life. By succeeding, I will be creating a healthy habit!
Probably not my best month, but I am still trying. And I am also counteracting my lack of 5 servings with getting more exercise so it all balances out... right... right??? :)
