2012 goals

January 2nd, 2012 at 02:41 pm

ytd = April 1 2011 - March 31, 2012
Coupon total ytd = 1,579.42
RX total = 406.32
Discounted Gift Cards = 211.05
Total = 2,196.79

I decided on the following goals for 2012

Keep grocery expenses under $200/month. This category includes cleaning, paper, personal care and pharmacy.
However it doesn't include vitamins or supplements because that is goal #2 Smile

Track what I'm spending on vitamins and supplements.

Create a new price book

Take a trip to Maine in the fall for less than $1500

Get a new computer for $300 - $350

Track the stuff I get for free. This is just out of curiousity.

Get A1c below 5.5

Lose 30 lbs

Do resistance training 3 x's week

Try 3 new receipes per month

That's it.

I got 2 free Smart protein bars at Walgreens this morning and then used the RRs from them to buy 8 cans of mushrooms @ .59c/can.

At King Soopers I got a Luna bar for free. All the bars will be donated to the food pantry. I also got tomatoes, garlic, celery, a large portobello mushroom, and 2 bunches of radishes. Spent a little over $5. I had another portobello mushroom pizza for lunch.

I had my $10 bonus card that I got for buying a $50 GC at Staples last month. They had 16 big rolls of Charmin TP on sale from $9.99 to $5.99. I had 2 .25 coupons and I used my $10 card to buy 2 packages. 1 package was free and I only spent $2.43 on the other one after the bonus card and coupons. .08c/roll.

I finished reading my book Atlas Shrugged. Not sure what category to call it but it was excellent. One of my favorite books because it celebrates man's achievments and his mind.

    I loved Atlas Shrugged, too! Wish it were required reading for high school seniors or early college level.

    Good luck on your goals. I'm so glad your health has improved and hope this is a great year for you.
