I really hate that word. Resolutions. I never keep them. They are always thrown out the window by January 17th and I don’t feel the slightest bit guilty about it either.

This year, though, I have set goals. See no resolutions, goals. And they will be beneficial to my family.

First, I really need to get back on the Meal Planning wagon. I know it’s nothing to be shout from the mountain tops but I have stuck to it for the past 2 days. And I really have to thank Plan to Eat {30 day free trial!}. I have been looking for a Meal Planning app or website for a very long time. I don’t know how this one slipped through the cracks. I have 2 weeks done so far. I really love that I can create a shopping list and then pull it up on my phone. I think this just might be the key!

Next, I really want to get back to couponing and shopping the deals. I used to be so good to it thanks to blogs such as Deal Seeking Mom and A Full Cup. To get back on track, I bought some new ink and paper for the printer and got out my old “supplies.” I know have my weekly deal list of stores I need to hit and now I just need to print out some coupons. I can’t wait to stock back up!

Another thing I would like to try is freezer meals. I am still looking for a blog that has some great meals {if you have any suggestions, please leave a comment}. There is a good chance I might need to be on bed rest for awhile so I’d like to know we have some meals in the freezer. Also, it will help when I shop the deals. Pre-make meals with the extra meats and fillers and the freezer will be stocked!

And lastly, my goal is to make it to 37 weeks. E was born at 35 weeks due to me having HELLP and we have so far been doing whatever we can {even though there isn’t much} to keep me from going down that path. If I can let this baby cook as long as possible, I will be one happy {and healthy} momma!

What are your goals for the New Year?
