Our 5 Big Goals For 2017- We are planning to make it amazing!!!

Our 5 Big Goals for 2017 and How We Plan To make it AMAZING!!!

Yep, folks we made it!

It is officially 2017, and I cannot wait to share the amazing things we have planned for 2017!!!

I have heard so many people say they couldn’t be happier that 2016 is over, and I can’t say I am not one of them.  2016 was full of ups and downs for those of us at Treasured Tidbits, not only financially but physically and emotionally as well.  But… we persevered and we are ready to CRUSH 2017 in both our businesses and personal life.

I have been looking forward to today for months. 

Today is the first day of a New Year, new chances and new business adventures.  Business adventures we have been planning, cultivating and diligently building for months.  I can’t wait to share them with you, but before we begin a 2017 overload, I want to share our main goals for 2017.  Notice, I don’t call them resolutions because to me resolutions are easily broken, but goals are something to be attained, something to aim for and can be put aside in a time of trouble to be restarted when that trial passes.  Our top five goals for 2017 are:

When Your Savings Goals Hit a Roadblock & Leave You on Empty

When Your Savings Goals Hit a Roadblock & Leave You On Empty

Our 2016 Savings Goals Update

2016 has certainly been another year full of ups and downs, twists and turns, both in our home and businesses, but I am excited to say we survived!

For the first time ever, I decided to set some goals (not resolutions) for 2016, and I even left my comfort zone and shared them with you here.

I must confess that we fell short on many of those goals, especially our savings goals,  but I have yet to beat myself up for it because they are GOALS not requirements, not deadlines and not commitments.  Sometimes GOALS have to change or undergo some alterations due to physical, financial or emotional challenges, as Benjamin Mays says, “The tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal.  The tragedy lies in having NO goals to reach.”

Tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goals. The tragedy lies in having no goals to reach. Benjamin Mays

Heaven knows our goals have made some enormous U-turns in the past year.  The biggest and most obvious being the original goal of saving $5,000-$10,000 by the end of 2016.

How One Little Planner Has Changed My Life & Businesses

Do you feel out of control? I know I used to. This one litte planner changed by life and my businesses.

IF you know much about me, or follow this blog, you know I hate to spend money on ANYTHING.  I coupon, blog, take surveys, use apps and even borrow tools and things, so that I don’t have to spend my hubby’s hard-earned money.  I also like to be super organized and on top of things, but with our hectic life it was a constant struggle day in and day out, no matter what I tried. But once I began using this amazing little planner I began feeling empowered, organized, put together and on top of things, even though, in reality, my life is even busier than it was before.

Halloween Party on a Budget

Halloween Party On a Budget

First, just let me say, I don’t normally celebrate Halloween, let alone host a Halloween Party.  Yeah, I might display a few ghosts for a few days and let my teenagers dress up and hand out candy, but when I signed up with House Party a few weeks ago and applied for a Borden Cheese sponsored party, I thought, “What the heck, Go for it!”  We did AND we were accepted, so a #Sponsored #BordenCheeseParty it was.

We planned our Halloween Party on a budget, and were in no way compensated for THIS post by Borden Cheese or House Party themselves.

Who couldn’t use a bit more closet rod space? 

Today I thought I would share some of the great tools we use to fit two teenage girls into one closet without being overcrowded or messy.  I had never even heard of most of these items before I joined Clever Container, but now I wonder how we survived the tiny house we used to live in without them.  Please don’t think this is a sales pitch.  It isn’t, BUT I am leaving a link to my Clever Facebook page so you can discover more inspiration.  I am also sharing DIY, Amazon and Dollar Store alternatives to help you put your special touch on things.
