Goal setting

2012 Reading List Monthly Breakdown


I am a huge fan of Crystal over at Money Saving Mom. I’ve been following her blog since Emma was a little baby and I was trying to find ways to cut down our budget. Last year she listed her goals and books she wanted to read that year broken down by monthly goals. Since it worked so well for Crystal, I am going to try my hand at it. This is the year that I am going to get things done and not let fear stand in my way.

So here is my reading list broken down into monthly goals.


">Organizing for a Fresh Start

" target="_blank">Skinny B*tch (Don’t judge, I didn’t make up the title. I’ve already started this and it has great straight forward nutritional information. I can’t say that I appreciate some of the language or the way they address the reader, but I do like the way they clearly explain things. Plus I think I only paid $1 at a garage sale for it. And Yes, I did change the “I” so that it wouldn’t be the whole word. That isn’t actually the way it reads on the book.)


" target="_blank">Blogging for Dummies

" target="_blank">Jam it, Pickle it, Cure it


" target="_blank">Miserly Moms

I know it like that, but I am ::loving:: some of these gardening books as well as the Complete Tightwad Gazette. It makes for light reading before bed. I am having to tough it through the organization book. It’s not what I thought it would be but I am only two chapters in. I’m hoping it will improve as I go along.

Thanks for commenting on my blog! Everybody comments on facebook and forgets to say anything here.
