Thinking Of 2012 Resolutions

Have you thought of any New Year's Resolutions for 2012 yet????
Over at The Geen Phone Booth she has some good ideas there like not buying anything new that is somthing I will think about for sure. I also would like to shift away from drinking diet soda, It is a real problem for me. I am also looking into getting these two books: "Eat vegan on $4.00 a day" & "The 30-Day Vegan Challenge" and really start eating more fruits, veg. & beans.
It's always fun to start a New Year!

Plans for 2012 - Keep Track Of Items Bought!

I have been thinking about trying to keep track of everything I buy next year! I want to try and limit my buying to only those things I REALLY need. I have tired in the past to keep track of what I spend on food, but there too things get forgotten and sales slips get tossed. My husband is also a big problem in this area as he NEVER keeps track of his spending, so it gets on my nervous that I know where every penny that I had control of went but he has no idea where his money went. But this year I am hoping to really be aware of our spending!! We honestly never buy much of "un-needed" items but I do see for instance that I have a number of one subject notebooks, books that could have been inter-library loaned instead of bought ect.
I have been trying to declutter most of the areas in our home, and already it is giving it a better feel. It's funny no sooner then I started decluttering our stuff that a work buddy of my husbands started cleaning out their place and you guessed it tossed the stuff our way.... But hey, I got a great couch that is in almost new shape that I really needed so it's all good.
Until next time - God Bless!
