Goodbye 2013 Hello 2014

As I sit here listening to Hoodwinked 2 in the background I am thinking of all the New Year's resolutions I am expected to make however I don't want to make them or at the least not call them resolutions because that makes them seem so easy to break. Instead I want to call them 2014 lifestyle changes.
Changes that will include
1)More patience-Patience not just for my family but for myself. I will not be so hard on myself when I fail or when people realize I am not perfect.

2) I will be better with money. I will make it a point to not only save more throughout the year but I will also have a happy balance where I will spend money too and enjoy life without stressing that it's the end of the world if I spend a dollar.

3) I will not get so down on myself if I don't sell something for a day/week on eBay because after all I already gave it to God and he will not let it fail.

4) I will love my family with everything I have. Oh wait I already do that one but now I will learn to laugh more and stress less.

What are your lifestyle changes?

52 week money saving challenge

I have decided for this year that I'm going to do the 52 week money saving challenge however instead of doing it forward I'm doing it backwards.
So for example instead of doing it like this week 1-$1, week 2-$2 I'm going to do it like this week 1 (really  week 52) will be $52 and then $51 and so on.

The reason being is that although we are good on money at the end of the year it just makes more sense for us to only have to put in a little bit around Christmas time.

So with that being said I'm going to post in here every Friday/Saturday to keep myself accountable.
To let everyone knows how it's going and to keep track of it all.



Just click on the picture and it should make the chart big for you. Good luck and happy savings.
