IWSG -- December
Lately, I’ve been thinking about how to make my life easier and better for the next year.
One thing will be to cut expenses. Do I really need all those channels on UVerse? The answer is no, all I really need is the internet. In January, I will pare down the Uverse bill to just the local channels and the internet. This will start saving me $120 a month. My family does not watch enough TV to justify spending that much for it. Plus, we have Netflix and Amazon Prime. If I need to, I can always get Hulu (still cheaper than UVerse) Most of the shows I watch are on the local channels anyway.
Make the most out of my Planet Fitness membership. I go around 10 times a month, which equates to about $2 a visit. I need to go more instead of doing other things. Plus, I can bring my two oldest children with me. They have been asking to go.
Figure out a plan to pay off my two credit cards and keep the balances low. Not having to pay those each month would be a huge help.
Have a meal plan for each week. That way the kids know what we are having for dinner and can even start cooking. I love Hello Fresh and Home Chef and hope to utilize those once a month for dinners. I also have a credit with Social Suppers that I need to go and use. I used to go there quite a bit and prepare dinners.
Finishing school in January will also take a big load off of my shoulders.
What are you planning on doing to make your life easier in 2018?
IWSG December 6 question - As you look back on 2017, with all its successes/failures, if you could backtrack, what would you do differently?
I can’t think of anything I would really do differently. I know I could be a little quicker at getting things posted. With my personal life, there is something that I should have moved on from long before I did. I knew the truth and I failed to accept it. Accepting things and moving on would be something that I would do differently.
What about you? What would you do differently?
