I remember from past successes, I needed short-term mini goals within my larger goal to stay on track. I’m setting up some mini goals to help stay motivated.
So here are my 3 mini goals I’m going to focus on for now:
- Price Compare: Before purchasing items I want to look for best prices. Amazon usually has lowest prices but not always. I’m also not on top of things enough to plan for 2 days later. We are out of kitty litter NOW, or I need Kcups NOW- CRAP! So I just run to the most convenient place and pay whatever it costs.
- Running list: I don’t write down what I need until I’m leaving for the store (if I do at all). This leads to me forgetting things we need, and wasting money on things we don’t. Instead of adding things to a list when we are out, Im hoping to add them to the list when we are running low, to allow time for price comparing and possible shipping time.
- Need vs. Want: I really need to reflect on needs vs. wants, because my lists for these are way off. I really need white tank tops (something every morning I say, “crap I need a white tank!”) But I really DON’T need a caribou latte…every. single. day.
While there are so many other mini goals I’d like to work on right away, these are the first ones I’m going to tackle. When I don’t break it down I get overwhelmed and give up!
