Five for Five

I’m linking up with Ricci to make five goals each Monday and then the following Monday I’ll see how I did on those and make 5 new ones!

1. Don’t buy anything I don’t need this week. I need to cut back on the nice decorations for a while and focus on recycling some of my crafts and making cheap projects for a while. I’m really feeling the restrictions of a college budget right now.

2. Cut back on my sugar intake. I really like my dentist and his hygienist is my cousin’s beautiful fiancé who I love seeing, but I am really tired of visiting them to have cavities filled. The sugar has got to go.

3. Cut Carver’s hair. That boy is shaggy right now and the groomer is expensive and his favorite is back home in Camanche. Apparently dogs here in the Des Moines area get ‘pampered’ and go to spas or go to Petsmart where the groomers have a history of cutting off ears. Those are my only options? I’ll do it myself then. I have a grooming kit for him and Sean wants to go to Mankato for a week so I told him he could if he helped me tackle the Carver project.
He’s a hot mess right now. 
4. CLEAN my apartment. It must be done. Not just straighten it. It needs to be ripped apart and put back together and since Sean will be gone, this weekend will be the perfect time to tackle this project!

5. Get my oil changed and low tired checked out. Since the oil incident, my parents have been on my back about getting my car looked at and the tired fixed. Has to be done before something breaks and my budget goes with it.

I hope I get them all accomplished! Have a great Monday!



  1. I finally took my baby to get groomed. They thought I was crazy asking for a summer cut but I don't like taking her very often...LOL!

  2. This reminds me that I need to get my oil changed! haha thanks!

  3. You have some great goals for this week! I need to cut down on my sugar too. I have TWO cavities that I need to get filled right now and I'm dreading it....that should be help enough for me to cut some sugar out! I like the "Don't buy anything you don't need" goal too. That is awesome and something I need to do too!
