March Madness!

Perception Is Everything

So we are more than halfway through March, but I always have a list of things needed to be done!
I usually do them weekly but I wanted to participate and make a month long list!

  • Get a Bed. Point blank. I want a mattress! The Bed frame will have to come later. My boyfriend rocks by giving me a futon for me to sleep on so I don't have to bring out the air mattress, but I am not going to have that for too long. I have high hopes of the decor for my room. However my money is not matching my ambition. So my priorities are furniture first, then I can decorate. Guess I will be staring at these bare white walls for a little while longer.

  • Finish Reading the Divergent Books. I finally got the 2 books on my Kindle Fire and I plan to take my evenings and sit and read. This goes along with cutting back on watching so much TV , Hulu, and Netflix. 

  • Make guacamole from scratch. Trader Joes sells this Guacamole Kit and I thought it was such an awesome idea to pack everything together and sell it. I bought one and plan on making it this month!
  • Eat in during the week. I am so quick to be lazy and pick something up to eat close to home so I don't have cook. This is costing me lots of money (money I could be using for fun times) so I want to try only eating food from home during the week. This should be doable because since I am a substitute teacher during the day, so I'm not tempted. 
  • Create my budget for house bills and trips. I go on way too many trips, shop too much, and have too many bills to not know how much I money I need to make monthly. I plan to create a sheet of all the bills I need to pay and when I have to pay them. I want to use this as a checklist so I don't forget things. This will also help when I have unplanned expenses.
Lets see how this goes!

Good Luck with your list!

And make sure you get a frame! I just wanted a mattress a year ago and needless to say its still sitting on the floor in my room. The frame hasnt made it here yet lol.

Great list! And thanks for linking up! I've been spending WAY too much lately so I need to seriously reign myself in there. Ikea actually isn't too bad for beds. I'm due for a new one too though.

We find local places that have "off brand" mattresses, and they are always about $350 to $400. They aren't bad brands, they just aren't as well known as the big names ;) Most come with a frame too! Thanks for linking up!
