July Goals



Better late than never in posting my July Goals. It has been a long time ( January 2011) since I posted my Monthly goals, so here goes!!

1. Since we are almost settled in our new home I have reconsidered the Pantry Challenge.  at ND Chic's Cents, she is hosting a Pantry Challenge. My goal is to stay within my grocery budget of 400.00 dollars for the month. This will be for Mr. CTS and myself. ( and the dogs) So just  4 days in and I have spent 75.00 already.  ( Yeah.... this is definitely going to be a challenge!)  That leaves me 325.00 for the next 26 days.

2.  Make an additional $100 this month. I have a few things listed on Amazon, and also on Etsy.  I need to redo the pictures for my Etsy items and then add a few more items.  Maybe Craigslist is an option for some other items around here. 

3.  Reduce my Credit Card Debt by 1000.00 dollars.  This is doable!  I have been getting some extra money back from deposits on different accounts.  241.00 From my homeowners insurance, 140.00 Professional Courtesy  and 55.00 dollars from Home Depot for paint rebates.

So, there you go!  Check in with me in a couple of days to see how I am doing.

You will be able to do it. I will post regularly because I've found that if I keep on top of it, I'm more likely to obtain my goal. Props to you for goal #3. That will feel really good when you achieve it.
