Goals for 2013

Here are my Goals for 2013:

1. Keep better track of budgeting my groceries. Back when I documented my $150 a month grocery budget weekly, I knew exactly how much I spent at the end of the month. Though I know I am still under the $150 mark, it's more of an estimate. I like Jordan Page's envelope method and I think I will probably start using this system.

2. Make more freezer meals / start doing more 'once a month' cooking. I will be posting more about this is soon.

3. Continue making small changes to save more money.

4. Make my own laundry detergent! I think I am going to use this recipe! Supposedly it will cost under $28 and be enough for over a year's worth of laundry!

5. And finally, I want to travel to somewhere I've never been before. So I will be trying to put some extra money away for that. (Read how I save for vacation.)

The link to Jordan's page doesn't work.

Thanks Paula! It should be fixed now!

My goal is to start couponing more. I kind of fell off the wagon with that but am looking forward to starting back.
