September Goals

It's almost Fall!! I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures, but not the shorter days that will be here soon. I need to take advantage of the longer days, while we have them, and walk after work.

I hope everyone is taking some time to relax over this Labor Day weekend.  Saturday just flew by. I'm not sure when Sunday got here.  The positive it that, at least I don't have the Sunday scaries! week will only have 4 work days!

 I figured I should make some goals for September, so here they are:

1.  Finish out retirement contributions. Only $1,332 to go!
2. Exercise 4 days a week, for at least 60 minutes.
3. Get rid of 20 items.
4. Get the Fall Decorations down and put up around the house.
5. Finish 2 books. 
6. Donate money to charity.

I am so looking forward to finishing off my retirement contributions for the year.  Next I will work on adding more money to my E-fund.  I want to get the E-fund to $18,500 by the end of the year and I think I am at $16,800 right now.  The ultimate goal will be to maintain a $20,000 E-fund.

I've been pretty good at exercising at least 4 days a week, but only for 30 minutes.  I need to increase this.  I am not gaining weight, but I am not losing any either.

I really want less clutter in my life so I decided to start getting rid of things.  I will start in my bedroom, bathroom, closet first. Then move out to other areas of the house.  I already have a small pile of clothes of donate. 

It's raining and the power is flickering, so time to go!


  1. I have a small box out to put things in that I do not want or need-sample sizes, new markers, small toys. I know a woman who has a junk store who will buy it from me.

    1. That is a good idea! I need to put out a box to put things in that I want to get rid of. Thanks for the idea!

  2. I like your goals. I try to set monthly goals, but when I don't attain them I feel so bad lol.
    Good Luck!

    1. I usually don’t make all of my monthly goals, but it gives me guidance on what I should be doing. I need more structure in my life.

    2. I understand needing more structure.
