Go for the Goal: January/February

I'm so excited to be hosting this link-up with Meghan, Lori, and Whitney! I find goals to be so important to living my life to the fullest, and I have to say that January has been an amazing month! I have done so well with goals, and I'm so excited to report on them. 
To keep with consistency, we're going to post this linkup the last Friday of every month, so I'll do my monthly recap and next month goals on these days instead of the last day of the month.

Here are my January goals in case you wanted to see what I set for myself at the beginning of the year, and below is my recap! **Edit: The money saving is because I've been living on the bare minimums because of my wedding coming up. I'm working so hard at savings...it's not because I make a lot of money...it's because  I've spent very little money aside from rent, student and car loans, and the necessities. :) Just wanted to clear that up!**
Pretty good, right? I'm so happy with myself and my progress!

And my February goals...
How were/are your January goals? What are your goals for February? Feel free to leave them in the comments below...or post you own over the next few days, grab a button, and link up below! What a better way to hold yourself accountable?

The linkup will be open for the next week, so you have plenty of time!

Uh, I need your savings secrets too! That's awesome, Meghan!!!

I was telling the other Meghan that a few of us are hosting a blog swap in March to help keep everyone on track with resolutions/goals, so it'd be fun to partner up and relate it to this link-up. Would y'all be interested??

$800?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I am SO impressed! I struggle to even save $100 - I've got a BIG shopping habit! I loved reading that you love all things purple and sparkly bc I love all things pink and sparkly!!! I just signed up with a personal trainer yesterday so I'm right there with you on the personal fitness goals :)

Hi Meghan,

I found your blog through your Friday's Fancies swap with Ashlyn, so I just wanted to say hi! I love the way you are outlining your goals like this - it's probably very effective! I too have the problem with buying too much Starbucks (eek), but for now Coffeemate's White Chocolate Caramel Latte creamer is really hitting the spot! It's so good I almost feel like I paid $4 for it. :)

Happy Friday!
- Megan

I love this post!!! And you must make alot of $$$, because I dont think it would be possible to save $1000 in one month! (Damn rent * my need for new shoes!!)

Lauren Alyse said...

I love love LOVE Starbucks, but there are a lot of copycat recipes out there for their drinks (like on Pinterest). And they're actually a pretty good substitution! :)

Karina said...

How inspiring! I can't believe you saved $800!

Sarah said...

Great goals!

Jessica said...

I didn't make any goals or resolutions this year but this post has really inspired me! Happy me i will write a few down : )

L.A. in the bay said...

MK said...

This is an inspirational post itself! I'm so proud of all of your accomplishments! It makes me thing that I should be writing some of this down to hold myself accountable. I'm looking forward to seeing how you do in February!
