I hope everyone has had a fabulous holiday. We are still out of town, enjoying a relaxing Christmas weekend with my family. I’ll return this evening, and I’m ready to look ahead to next year. This week is often a time of reflection—what went well, what we could do differently next year and remembering favorite moments of 2009. I’ll be doing this here at Inexpensively, in addition to at home with my family. First, though, I want to hear about your resolutions for 2010.
Inexpensively plans for the new year are underway, and we want to be sure we’re helping you reach the right goals. Are you hoping to save money for something big next year? Planning to (finally) get organized? Is this the year you start eating healthier? Whatever your goals, we want to help you achieve them, inexpensively. My own resolutions are usually a bit off the wall. In 2003, I decided a nightly bubble bath would be a great idea—and I still work in a bit of relaxation every week to keep me sane. Two years ago, we swore off all drive-thrus—it didn’t necessarily eliminate fast food but who wants to park the car, drag in 3 kids and eat greasy, overpriced food? Tonight, I’ll be plotting out my resolutions on my blog, Someday-style. I’ve decided to list 10 things to do in 2010 rather than something to change or eliminate. Topping the list? A Disney vacation with my family (and, yes, I’ll share my budget tips & progress along the way.)!
We hope you’ll set a 2010 goal to join us for Money Saving Monday each week. We love to hear about your tips, tricks and frugal living ideas. We’ll be kicking off the year with another round of resolutions. Check back next week to share your budget goals for the year!
