Happy New Year

January 1st, 2012 at 06:32 pm

Happy New Year to all! I hope the year is off to a good start for everyone!

I started the year off by upping my 401k allocation to 8%. My employer also contributes 8%- so one step towards my 5 year plan.

I also upped my prepaid medical at work to 1200 for the year so that I can start getting some stuff taken care of that I have been putting off and also to have some of those 'fun' milestone tests done now that Im 50.

Ive spent the past couple of days decluttering and organizing. I have several big bags and a couple of boxes set to go to Goodwill.
I spent about $50 dollars yesterday on a storage rack, some plastic tubs and bins and a label maker. I have a closet designated for grandkid toys that is always an eyesore. So I pulled everything out, organized everything and tossed all the broken toys and those missing parts. I have to say the before and after are dramatic and it feels great to have that monster under control I also cleaned and organized my (walk in) closet that was getting hard to manuever around more!!!

It feels great to be off to a good start. I am getting some of my motivation from a site called Pinterest. If you havent visited, its just a site filled with random ideas. But I am also just really ready to be more organized. I have done MAJOR purging at work as well. I love starting the new year off a little lighter on STUFF and a little more focused on gratitude.

The hubs job is going awesome. He is working at a remote camp as the sole mechanic. He is getting lots of overtime, which he loves. Yesterday there was a cold weather advisory that exposed skin would freeze after 15 minutes....umm...he primarily works Im sure he stays layered up. But Id take a pass on But again, he LOVES it. So go hub! And the added money is helping us catch up and planand hope for the future.

Well, Happy New Year friends.

    Happy New Year! Great job tackling that toy closet. It sounds like a big job. We are pretty light on 'things' and 'stuff' around here and yet there is always something to purge or let go of. Keep up the great work.
