It's the end of the year, and time to get serious about making your goals for the next year. My biggest goal for the next year is to stop eating out completely. This means no fast food runs or visits to nice restaurant. This goal is covering several different areas that I want to change. The biggest is actually that I want my entire family to eat a healthier diet. this means Not only are we going to be eating at home more, but that we are cutting down on the amount of processed food that we eat. The second aspect does involve our finances. When I looked over the amount we spent on eating out over the last year, it made me sick. So that is my lofty goal. Looking over the year, the only exceptions I see are the two days that my family is going to spend flying in the summer. We can plan ahead for our other vacations and pack coolers for our road trips.
We have other financial goals that we are working towards, but that one is going to require the most effort on my part. What are your goals for the new year? What do you want to achieve?
