The Dawning of a New Year!
A new year can mean many things, such as:
- positive outlook
- loss of loved one/ones
- birth of baby/ pregnancy
No matter what life is constantly moving, changing and like a freight train,time will stop for no one- no matter what. . .
For me a new year usually means I sit down and reminisce on all the things of the previous year. Memories of camping with the kids, their first big road trip, spending time with family, celebrated birthdays. . . Those are the strands of yarn that weave together the tapestry of our life and each one is unique!
This year I wanted to do something different of writing a list of things I want to do in life and see how many I can cross off at the end of the year, instead of writing down a "resolution" that I know I will not be able to keep anyway, I wanted to do something realistic.
So for 2013, I decided I don't want to pay retail price for anything. I will seek those coupons, use my RR's, learn to be realistically frugal, and best of all enjoy my hobbies and use them to save our money and possibly earn money too!
Since I will be doing a lot more living "off-line" and enjoying the time with my kids while they are little I won't be posting every day. This is precious little time with them and I want to spend it wisely and savor it!
Well, I have a few more idea's for posts and I am so excited and can't wait to share the other goals I have for 2013! Happy New Year!
