My first goal for the new year was to get rid of cable. My goals now are to read more and walk more. I volunteer at the local grade school to help little ones learn to read--- it's so much fun! I love your notebook idea, Diane. I'm much in the same situation and I'm going to try that one.

My husband just decided he wants to retire next April. We’ve always been active and now wonder how we will fill our days. I started making a notebook of free and inexpensive activities, places to volunteer, places offering senior discounts, etc.
I am checking into doing more volunteer work. Want to read books from the library instead of being glued to the television. I am walking more and driving less. If I don't go shopping I won't spend money. Instead I will blaze more trails (A.K.A. walk in more parks).

I think it would be fun to post a weekly frugal goals list. I would love to see what others are working on. Clearly Some things are repetitive like cooking at home more. But lots of other things are personal and different and gives people ideas of things they may not have thought of.
For me This week I am continuing with my getting rid of 2 storage containers of unused things a week.
I am also going to work on a inventory of all food in the house so I can have a use it up and re stock up plan before the beginning of the month.
I also am going to look in to more entertaining things in my area for children that are no cost. we all think we know them all and then are amazed at what our hometowns really offer.
it takes courage to push yourself to places you have never ben before
to test your limits
to brake through barriers
