I have a to-do list that has now reached 3 pages as I check one thing off the list 3 more are added, I feel so overwelmed at times. I have been trying to figure out ways to cut things out of our budget, so far I have done
1. planted some vegtable in planters (no good place for a garden)

2. bought chickens for eggs (have to wait a few months still young chicken)

3. made home made laundry and dishwashing soap

4. have been working on buying mark downs things on sale and replenshing my poor pantry
(mothers hubbard cupboard were bare so was the freezer) have gotten some back ups and now have about 20 meat meals in freezer,

now for my goals:

1. make sour dough starter
2, make potato bread,
3. Make a big batch of bread dough freeze bread loafs and rolls
4. Make english muffins and english muffin bread
5. thin out house (orgainze and clean out junk)
6. Move granddaughter up to her own room (so dogs barking and people coming over wont wake her up she is in living room right now)
7.buy cloth diapers for grand daughter (to save on buying disposables)
8. start living more green
9. clean out emails and check emails everyday (got behind have over 33,000)
10. work on my crocheting
11. have my to do list done by the end of the month (i hope)

Sorry for such a long post but it seems to help to have some where to post to show how I am doing.


12. do a daily posting to update how i am doing on my goals

    I always find that lists really help me to stay organized and motivated...especially as things are being crossed off the list.

    Good luck, first you have to identify it and list it.
