I will definitely be needing a challenge in January, as December is full of lots of spending, both expected & unexpected.
- For the financial challenge, my goal is to keep our weekly spending to $360/week. This includes the following categories (and, does not include standard bills like the mortgage, child care, etc):
- Dining out
- Clothes (mine & kids)
- Kids lessons
- Personal (this is hair cuts, etc)
For the decluttering challenge, my goal is to get rid of (either sell, toss, or donate) 20 items per week in January. Bonus goal would be to clean my closet & dresser!
- Today was my annual holiday lunch with M. We've been having a festive lunch before the holidays for at least the last ten years. Today was perfect. We ran a few quick refinance-related errands, & then had a delicious lunch with a glass of wine. And, dessert! I had a $35 credit for a restaurant, so that covered everything but the wine & tip. Yum!
What are you up to this weekend? Anything fun & festive? Are you participating in the challenge?
