Are you a goals person?

Are you a goals person? You know the type. They are able to set short-term and long-term goals. They are able to focus on those goals and actually accomplish them.

I am not this type of person. I never have been. I used to view goals as a way to let myself down because I would be upset if I did not accomplish them. And really, who needs that kind of stress anyway?

Well, I need to become that kind of person. This year, I did discover that to-do lists were actually a good thing. They gave me focus. They helped me remember what I needed to on a daily basis. They helped my memory out in ways that can only be imagined!

I realized that to-do lists are actually just short-term goals and I can accomplish them. If I don't get them done, no biggie. I just add them to tomorrow's list. It is all good.

This has helped my focus out in many ways. To-do lists have convinced me that I can set long-term goals as well as short-term goals. I have the focus and discipline to accomplish this. And maybe I don't have adult ADD. I was starting to wonder.

A huge benefit to setting goals and making to-do lists? I have found out I save money by doing this. What you say? I save money. I know what I need to buy now. I am looking for ways to make projects cheaper because I know they are goals I want to accomplish. I look at what I have first before I buy because I have researched my goals and I know what I need. I don't stand at Menards wondering what I need because I have a list.

Although I doubt that this will be cured altogether. I like wandering around Menards aimlessly. I get ideas that way.

I am starting to make lists for my goals. I want to share them with you to help you as well as me. You know what they say about accountability. With this blog, I consider myself to be accountable to you all. So that is what I will be doing for the next week. Sharing my goals, hopes and dreams.

Hopefully not setting myself up to fail. I can be good at that too.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month

As crazy as it seems, some people make prepping harder than it has to be. Learning skills can be hard, but the end rewards are so worth it. The work can be hard, but the pay off is that jobs get done and you have accomplished something for the future. However...preppers still need stuff. We can produce a lot of our own things and survive just fine. We still need the items that will make survival easier now and, heaven forbid, if anything bad happens. We need things to keep our lifestyle simpler and easier if something happens. Over the eight years or so that I have been prepping, I have some things that I buy almost every month. Some months when the budget is tight, I might not purchase any of these. Then I appreciate having these things on hand! Below is my list of things I buy every month. I don't make one big trip and buy all these things in one trip. I add them to my cart at the grocery store, department store, online shopping, and whatnot. I spend a little bit every s
