March Goals

 I'm looking forward to March! It's a reasonably quiet month (one birthday, no travel) before a very busy April (college trip to Colorado, & family trip to Dubai).

Here's what I'm hoping to accomplish this month.


  • Stick to our budget
  • Use 6 "hard to use" freezer or pantry items
  • Make $200 in side hustle
  • Save CA tax refund in boys college accounts
  • Put bonus into savings
  • Find cheaper car insurance
  • Estimate withholdings for 2023 (adjust accordingly) 
  • Plan one fun activity with the kids
  • Summer plans
  • Have to dates with M
  • Plan Dubai activities
  • Lose 3 lbs
  • Track calories & average below 1500 calories/day
  • See two doctors for lingering issues
  • Do something social with friends
  • Invest time in my volunteer roles
  • PRactice French
  • Finalize leave date (work) 
  • Make a list of things I want to do in my first 3 months off
  • Come up with a list of future options (career, volunteer, etc)
  • Figure out dress code requirements for Dubai, and see if I have any gaps. It's a conservative dress code, in a warm weather climate, so not sure I have much that fits the bill. 

What about you? What are you hoping to accomplish in March? How does your month look? 


  1. SO nice to see goals. I will live vicariously through yours, as I am just trying to get through the day let alone a goal.:)

    1. Your goal right now can be getting through each day at a time. You've got this.

  2. I am grateful for the enthusiasm and knowledge the author has for different topics, and for sharing them with us.

  3. Hmmm, probably getting the inside of the house done and sewing projects completed so I can concentrate on the outside tasks come spring.

    God bless.

    1. I'm also looking forward to spring & our garden! Need to start discussing our planting approach with M.
