Each month I commit to doing five things that will improve my life, my health, or my blog. These are my five commitments for February 2016.
Stop cluttering up my Kitchen Table
All my mail, my purse, my coat everything ends up on my kitchen table. And it makes me antsy to look at it, so it needs to stop. So this month, I commit to hanging my coat in the closet – which is right next to the kitchen table- when I get home. I also commit to going through my mail, and dealing with it right when it comes in. And finding a better home for my purse, at least for my off days. My work purse is huge, people!
Fill out my Budget Binder
I printed everything out and put it in a binder. Now I just need to use it.
Create a clothing budget
I read a post at Franish about creating a clothing budget, and I think that this is a good idea for me. I like to shop a lot, so I’ll probably go with a quarterly budget. I also need to look at what I need, if anything, for Spring.
Create a bedtime routine
Well, stick to my bedtime routine would be the correct way of putting it. I need to consistently before bed- wash my face, brush and floss my teeth, and put on my facial lotion. My skin looks so much better when I do this, but Winter makes me so lazy. I also want to read for 30 minutes before bed everyday too.
Write. A lot.
This was a January Commitment too. Which I did well with, I just want to keep it up through February. Building a back log of posts for the blog is a big priority for me right now. In Spring, I want to start focusing more on the graphics and photography for the blog, so I know that I will need lots of posts to pull from during that time. I also want to commit to two hours of uninterrupted time for writing on my days off. No TV. No Phone. No Editing. Just Writing!
My January Commitments and How I did
- Empty my Cupboards – Pass. This was easier than I thought it would be.
- Floss everyday – Fail.
- Make my bed everyday – Pass.
- Set up my budget planner – Pass.
- Write. A Lot. Pass.
I always have one I fail at. Maybe I should just do four commitments?!
