September Goals: Back to School
September. A clean page, a fresh start and a great time to set some new goals. After the freedom of summer, routine, rules and rigour are what I need. Here are my September goals:
Reading – I hope to keep my summer reading momentum going. There are so many books I'd like to read but I need to plan in more time for this. I've also finally got round to ordering some new glasses which I'm now looking forward to wearing.
Writing – after doing some freelance writing this summer I'm keen to do more (paid or voluntary).
Maths – I need to stick to a budget and keep tight reins on my spending. I'm keeping a spending diary and a list of the comparative cost of items to keep me in check. Menu planning and researching new recipes is time consuming but essential to eating well on a budget.
Creativity – I'd like to experiment with new recipes and also a few house projects too.
Playtime – life can be too scheduled and too much like a perpetual to-do list. Each week I plan to make time for some fun. Low-cost regular treats, outings, getting outside and seeing friends and family will brighten my autumn days.
Uniform – I'm quite excited about the arrival of autumn and the opportunity to layer. I will be creating a minimalist autumn wardrobe from my existing clothes with no new purchases planned.
Quite a challenge but you've got to aim high, haven't you?
Do you have any goals for September?
