2013 Bucket List For My House and Life

Welcome to my 2013 Bucket List for my home and life! This could also by viewed as a goals list, resolutions, or dreams. I kind of don't care for the word "resolutions" so, please, let us not use it!

Without further ado...

Erica's 2013 Bucket List

1. Buy a sewing machine.

2. Make a quilt.

3. Buy curtains for the first floor windows as well as shades for the kitchen.

4. Go to a NASCAR race.

5. Finish reading these books: The Bible, The Book of God, and A People's History of the United States: 1492 - Present.

6. Take better care of myself by being more active and eating better.

7. Remodel front and back hallways.

8. Finish basement.

9. Build or buy a new bed frame for me. My current frame is on it's last legs.

10. Repaint upstairs hallway and bathroom.

11. To spend more quality time with kids by taking trips and doing more one-on-one time with them.

12. To expand the garden more and maybe become more self-sufficient from the garden.

13. Take a trip with Rob besides our annual trip to Tomah.

14. Replace living room furniture with new-to-us furniture. What we have is worn out!

That is it. I cut my list a little short compared to last year because I wanted to be a little more realistic. Beyond that, if I get all this accomplished, I will be broke. Time to be a little more frugal!

What is on your bucket list for 2013? Please share!

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!


  1. I have found that one of the hardest things is getting started and staying on a routine. So far here is my areas of things I hope to improve on or do (not in any particular order);

    1. Read more, this will include the bible and devotionals every day.
    2. Finish more crafts that I have started, need to start, or finish.
    3. Be more organized and have a small daily list of chores to do around the house.
    4. Be more health, this includes exercise three times a week and finding healthier recipes to make at home.
    5. For busy days, depend on food I have frozen or slow cooker meals for dinner instead of eating out. This will include finding more recipes that freeze well.

    On some of these items, even if I read or do a craft for 15 minutes I figure it will make a difference in accomplishing my goals as well as staying on target.

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

10 Non-Perishable Food Preps You Should Be Buying Every Month

New preppers wonder what they should be buying for their preps every month. More experienced preppers wonder what holes they should be plugging in their food storage to be better prepared. We all know we should be constantly adding and rotating our food storage every month in order to have a good supply. Since I have written the 10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month  and Top Ten Items You Need For Your Food Storage , I have found my preparedness mindset changing a little bit. I think they are things you should be buying every month that are perishable items and non-perishable items. This list will concentrate on the non-perishable items because those are the ones most important to your food storage. To explain what I have included on this list, I will give you the criteria. I am making this list as basic as possible. Meaning that you can go to the grocery store and buy these items right off the shelf which means the items are shelf-stable. They will not expire o
