I don't like saying, "New Year's Resolution", but I suppose this is kinda like that. Instead, I like to consider it my goals. My goal for 2013 was to find a new family home, which we did. We moved in Nov 21, 2013. So we just snuck in. But really it was an absolutely stressful year trying to get one house ready for sale and purchase another within settlement time and within budget, which for Sydney prices is really, really, really, hard!! No really, I can't stress enough how difficult and emotionally draining it was to try and purchase a house last year. The market is so competitive, and there is always someone who acts like they have an endless supply of money ready to spill out on the house you also want! Anyway, we did it, and we are very happy.
So this year, my goal is to waste less. It sounds so simple when I read it on the screen, but really when you sit down and start to plan, you realise how much you take for granted and how much you will have to adjust to make sure you make everything you do count for something. So waste less of what exactly? Well everything really. Waste less:
I think once you get a taste for saving and you start to see it increase, you start to realise you can put a little more aside and you realise you can do it. Saving is possible.
