When I sat down to start putting together my New Years intentions I found myself reflecting on not only the last year but the last 10 years.
If you haven’t had a chance to write down your intentions I encourage you to do so today. (download your printable here)
I believe that until you write them down they are just dreams. There is no right or wrong way to do these and to give you some added inspiration I’m sharing mine with you today. In addition to writing them down you should keep them in a place that will allow you to glance at them throughout the year. What better place to put them out there then online (hello accountability)! I would love to hear what your #1 intention is for 2020. Happy New Year!
My Immediate Goals
Clean out and organize my office, closet, vanity, kids playroom, basically every room in the house. When we moved last May I feel like we never got fully organized, then summer happened and things just piled up. I had hopes of cleaning out the toys before Christmas and that never happened either so now organizing is on the top of the list!
No buy January. I’m doing this for a few reasons, 1. Being debt free is a priority, and when I say debt free I mean no credit card debit. I lease my car and we have a mortgage so I’m not counting those. 2. #bloggerlife is a very consumption based industry and with only a few months in I feel like I need to check myself. You all also want to see a lot more other then fashion ie: home decor, organization ideas, entertaining tips, etc. 3. Since I will be cleaning out both my closet and bathroom I’m sure I will find a lot of unused products and clothing that should be given another life ;) 4. For me, because while I’ve always been a shopper (long before starting this blog) I want to prove to myself (and my husband) that I can do this.
**No buy January to me means not being able to buy things that aren’t necessary. For example, if I run out of shampoo and can’t find one in the house, I will go buy shampoo. However if my favorite leggings go on sale and I want them - nope, thats a no go!
