Things I Want To Say Yes To This Year

Well you just knew I'd have to follow up last week's post with the things I'm going to say yes to, right?  It's easy to make goals and resolutions in the new year about all the things you don't want to do, all the things you need to change.  It can be a pretty negative looking list.  Not that it's not necessary or full of great goals, it's just that it needs to be balanced with the good stuff.  What are you going to add in to take the place of the bad habits you're going to quit?  What are you giving yourself to look forward to in 2019, or pushing yourself to do more of?

Swagbucks Update

Start your new year off right by earning free gift cards through Swagbucks All throughout January you can earn large bonuses when sign up as my referral on Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching the web, watching videos, shopping, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, or PayPal cash. 

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a 300 SB bonus. Here's how: 
2. Earn 300 SB total before January 31st, 2019. You'll get a 300 SB bonus for it, which is $3.
3. That's it. It's super easy.  I like to redeem the points for Amazon gift cards so I can stockpiled for Christmas and not have to worry about factoring extra money for gifts into my budget.

Ways to Organize This Month

Like decluttering, organizing is something that I work on year-round as well, even though our home stays fairly organized at all times.  I feel like the interior of the home is just one small part of feeling truly organized in life, and the rest of the stuff, like schedules and daily events, are something that you have to work at all the time to stay on top of.  Especially at the beginning of the year, there's so much you can do to set yourself up for organized success throughout 2019.


Things I Want To Say No To This Year

There's a great page in my PowerSheets, in the workbook section at the front, to list out the things you want to say no to and things you want to say yes to in 2019.  What a fantastic idea.  I'm generally like Rory Gilmore with my pro/con lists, for all major decisions (okay, and small ones), so this was right up my alley with it being basically one giant 2019 pro/con list.

Things to Declutter This Month

Even though I have a really minimal home, I still find things to declutter.  I don't have huge, KonMari style decluttering sessions anymore, but the task is never really done because there's always new things coming in and things that are getting worn out or broken that need to leave.  But whether you're motivated by the new Netflix series and plan to tackle big projects or would rather move along slowly through the process, here's some things you can cleanse from your life in January:

Word of the Year and More 2019 Plans

January 9, 2019

My word of the year came to me right away, before I even made any other notes or goals.  Not really sure how that happened, but it popped into my head and then I had to figure out why, and just embrace it.  I figure it came out of the depths of my psyche somewhere, in response to the rough year that was 2018.

I am all about being frugal all year long, but recognize the pinch of January.  Once December spending craziness is over, January is quiet enough that you have time to reflect on how much money just left your possession.  Damn those holidays and our generous natures.  So I have a few ways to save money this month to share with you, mostly related to this particular season.  I plan to have a different version each month for you, to help us all save as much as possible in 2019.

January Plan With Me

Happy New Year!  And welcome, 2019, I'm glad to see you.  You need to perform better than 2018, or we're going to have words.  So, is anyone around today?  I have the day off of work but I'll be blogging and getting home related things done since I got a good night's sleep last night.  I think that's how you know you're old right, no longer feeling the need to stay up and party until midnight?  John had to work today at the firehouse, and he leaves for that before 6 a.m.  So we just didn't feel like staying up all night and being exhausted.  Instead, we celebrated the turn of the new year... on London time.  Which was 6 p.m. here in Chicago.  It worked for us! 

Anyway, it's finally 2019 and like I mentioned, 2018 is happily left in the dust for me.  I'm kicking this year off on the blog with the first of my monthly 'plan with me' posts, which I plan to have up every first week day of a new month.
