Update on our January and February Goals – Food and Fun!

January Goal

As you recall if you have been following my posts, I committed to monthly goals for 2018.  I decided that monthly goals as opposed to “New Year’s Resolutions” would be easier to manage and follow. January’s goal was to spend less, with the focus on food spending.

My Goal for January: Spend Less

The main focus was to spend much less on food.

We took the following steps to reach this goal:

  1. Set our goal (Spend much less on food)
  2. Made our plan (Use planning and creativity to spend less on food.)
  3. Put it into action. See my posts about  12 low cost breakfast options12 low cost lunch options , 12 low cost dinner options and 12 low cost dessert options.
  4. We made sure we were accountable by sharing our progress in the Weekly Updates: Announced our goal, plan and strategy, Week One update, Week Two update, Week Three update and then we wrapped it up here in this post.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to remember how much you love and cherish each other but the ideas below are just everyday activities that can be enjoyed together all year long.
