october goals


in october 2013, i will:

- save & not spend
- prioritize dinner
- make pesto

september was wonderful. we took a little road trip to oklahoma where i met an amazing group of incredible women. we also hosted a farmwarming for our dear family & closest friends. we even checked off some of those home improvement projects from our list. 

i know october will be even better. this month is full of some amazing stuff. i am packing up next week & heading to war eagle crafts fair, a wonderful tradition for the women of my family. we're also hosting a handful of friends at our house for exciting autumn festivities. i'll be gearing up for craft shows & the holidays in an effort to make some of our gifts.

this month, as we spend time with family & friends, i'd like to stay mindful of where i put my money. aside from some exceptions that i have already saved up for, such as the trip with my family, i hope to save rather than spend money. our budget is always tight & especially now that i am awaiting a paycheck due to the government shutdown.

additionally, i will prioritize dinner. we've had some pretty lousy dinners recently so i hope to get back in the swing of things. i always meal plan, but i hope to incorporate more of our garden bounty into our meals. of course, this requires extra planning, but this month i hope to take time for dinner prepping & making in order to save more.

finally, let's bring on the pesto. we have bushes of basil growing just out our front door & i hope to freeze jars & bags full of pesto this month. 

happy october, friends!
love,
natalie
