My 27 'acheivable goals' for 2011

Well's been a while, I know. Thankyou very much to each and every one of you who said they were still here reading along. I really, really appreciate it!

The end of 2010 flashed past me before I could blink. Work has been so unbelievably crazy, I haven't had time to be creative.

So, a fresh new year – a fresh new outlook on life and I'm back on the crafting and blogging bandwagon!

So I thought I would have the first post of 2011 with a list of my "27 achievable goals". Not resolutions as such, just things I want to get done in 2011.

In no particular order:
  1. Buy less Crap
  2. Save more money
  3. Waste Less food
  4. Make my own clothes – no 'new' items of clothes for 2 months (to start ) this DOES however exclude underwear. I must buy nice good undies – i just couldn't bear to make them!
  5. Buy organic fruit and veg at the farmers markets from Jan 8 onwards
  6. NO FAST FOOD – Including, but not limited to Maccas, KFC, Hungry Jacks and Pizza Hut / Dominos
  7. Always use my enviro bags (carry 2 with me at all times)
  8. Build a vege garden in January
  9. Build a compost pile in January (i posted about this AGES ago and still haven't got around to it)
  10. Try to always buy environmentally friendly products (washing detergents etc)
  11. Use the stairs more
  12. Floss every night
  13. Plan all meals the week before and buy food according to what is needed for the recipe only.
  14. Exercise for 30 mins each day (hmm....this could be interesting!)
  15. Have shorter showers
  16. use rechargeable batteries and stop using "disposable" products like razors and 'single serve" items which use up a lot of packaging
  17. donate all "read" magazines to nursing homes (and also stop buying so many magazines!)
  18. start selling the things I make
  19. Get in touch with old friends
  20. have dinner in a nice restaurant once a month
  21. see live music at least once every 2 months
  22. do the following courses: Silver jewellery, glass/ lampwork beading
  23. be more patient
  24. don't let the little things bother me
  25. watch less tv
  26. read more books\
  27. drop at LEAST 1 dress size

So, what are your goals for 2011??
