I won't go into much detail for this goal, but financially I would like to be debt-free, besides my house, and I would like to build my savings up. I have made a lot of changes this past year with my finances, I have cut back on shopping and have really limited myself when it comes to spending period. I spent ALOT of necessary money on clothes & shoes in 2011. I hope to be in a better place with my finances by the end of 2013.
I haven't talked alot about my love for cooking on the blog, because it has really just flourished over the last year. (Hence the no spending money goal). During the week I cook breakfast every day, carry a bag lunch to work every day and cook dinner every night. I have fallen in love with trying new recipes and cooking your own meals is the way to becoming a healthier eater too! I hope to become more experienced in my cooking and branching out and trying more dishes in 2013. I am so thankful to my fellow bloggers that not only post their daily workouts but also post yummy, delicious & healthy recipes. I plan to do more of that in 2013 too. It's fun to share and trade recipes and share the wealth!
On the goal of saving money and cooking more, I need to get better at making meal plans. I have been checking my pantry & fridge before going grocery shopping, but I always seem to end up spending the same amount ($100) doing my grocery shopping. That shouldn't happen when there is still food in my cabinets lol I need to get better at making a meal plan, sticking to it and eating everything in the pantry & fridge before refilling.
