You have arrived quicker than what I had planned. With the new year, comes the ever so daunting challenge of looking ahead, planning goals and how to execute them. I say daunting because it overwhelms me. What do I focus on? My personal life? My family? My blog? Daily life? Ahhhhhhh!! You see I feel overwhelmed. But for now I am going to address this blog. Here I go……
Looking back at my 2014 posts, looking in my garage and storage area, I have come to the conclusion I have plenty of ideas to inspire my writing this year.
First of all, I have
some many projects in the works that need tweaking or just taken time to blog about. Secondly, I have way way too much stuff. Somewhere, I read a person was challenging themselves to a “spending free” month. I could do that. I could do that for a while and still have projects to work on for sometime. Often, I will find myself out on a hunt and really have no business doing that. I just should hunt from my own stash. Hey, there is an idea!! Thirdly, I would like to treat this blog a “job” that I am committed to do, scheduled and followed through on.
There I have said it. My goals for a happy new year of Thrifty to Nifty. Kinda when one proclaims something it makes it more real for accountability. Thanks everyone. I wish you a happy non- stressed goal setting time. How can I help?

Great goals. I am inspired by how you want to treat blogging like a job. I have so many ideas but haven’t been consistent. Treating it like a real job may be the trick.

I love the idea of not spending for a month! But, I think I would like to take it further by not spending for 3 months. I’ve been really good with saving money lately (compared to my terrible spending habits in the past), but really want to do more. Happy New Years and good luck with all your future projects!

Last year I joined the one word 365 and shared it with my readers. I enjoyed it so much that I did it again this year. This year my word is organize. I hope to end 2015 as a much better organized person. Hope you meet your goals. Happy 2015!

Hope you can follow through with your goals for this year! It does make it accountable when you share it. Happy New Year to you!

Great word to keep at the forefront. I will be interested in your means to follow through. Good luck and thanks for commenting

I am not sure why it just says “hope” – I know I wrote a longer comment; parts of it must have gotten cut off…..But “hope” is a good word though!

Happy New Year! Good luck on your projects. I am looking forward to seeing what you have to share in 2015.

Stating your goals does seem to have an accountability effect. I am looking forward to whatever projects you have in store for us in 2015! 🙂

We did set some goal for this year but no real resolutions. I just say no to resolutions. Goals are always a good thing no matter the time of year. We did accomplish our goals last year so that was a good thing.
Happy New Year!

You are so right. Goals seem to be so much more manageable and measurable. They can be broken down. Thanks for having me think that through a little more.
