For over a year now, I’ve been sharing my daily goals on the Raising A Family On A Budget facebook page. I list 5 things that I want to accomplish each day, and posting in an open forum has kept me accountable.
Since I have so much to do over the next 7 weeks to get ready for the baby’s arrival, I figured why not post my weekly goals here on the main page so that I can be accountable for them as well, and you will often see these broken down during the week as my Top 5 Daily Goals.
So here’s just a peek as to what I have on my plate for this week, which is full of end of the year activities at my children’s school, my daughter’s birthday party on the weekend, work at the university on Tuesday, and what real life looks like for a mother of 2 with one on the way.
- Order edible cake topper for Emily’s birthday cake
- Design party favor labels & decorations
- Send labels & decorations to Office Max to be printed on card stock
- Assemble favors
- Bake & decorate cake – Friday
- Clean out my coupon binder
- Send expired coupons to the military
- Order extra coupons from My Coupon Hunter
- Contact Hammertime to schedule install of range hood/microwave
- Attend both David & Emily’s parents’ day recitals at school
- Grocery Shopping
- Sell back books that are taking over my office floor
- Donate old prom dresses/bridesmaid dresses that I have no use for
- Make a consignor appointment at Little Boutique to sell off some of the little girl clothes that I have and won’t be needing
- Send in rebate for HH Gregg
- Send in rebate for P&G from ShopRite last week
- Update BRU & Target baby registries so that the items I need are on there prior to receiving my 10% close the registry coupon
- Put Shop4Charity & BDFL stuff into storage
So this is what real life looks like. A busy week of stuff to do around the house in addition to normal housework, blogging and working.
What does your week look like? Anyone have an equally busy week to tackle?
Businesses mentioned in this post are ones that I actually do regular business with and mentioning them is just a true picture of what my upcoming week looks like. None of the businesses mentioned have asked me to post about them, nor do they know I was going to write this up today.
