Twenty Fourteen

Dear twenty fourteen, I am looking forward for a great year. I have high hopes, expectations and imagination that it will be greater than 2013. Let's do it now and never look back..........
I don't make new year resolutions anymore because I tend to break them during the first two months of the year. Although one thing is I am trying to do this year is to do a 52 Week Savings Plan Challenge. Me and my husband are trying to do this individually. One thing though is he ask me last week in order to save up what would I give up? Hmm tough, not shopping of course, lol. I told him I will skip eating out once a week. He said I thought you will say not to buy any shoes. Oh no can't give that up, I said. He just rolled his eyes and I am used to that already. Anyway the way this saving plan works is each week you set aside a ($1), Week 2($2), Week 3($3) and so on. Basically you just need to double up what you save the week before. By the end of the year, you will have $1,378.00. 
Is that cool or what? I am excited about this and will give updates on how I am doing so far. 
Hi everyone. Happy Monday, stay warm and safe. 
xoxo

    1. Hi Sharon thanks. Yes I would not. I am actually telling my husband what would he do to my stuff if I die before him. I told him he better not sell all of them on a garage sale for $1/piece, lol....Try it out and all your christmas wish list will be paid cash.

  28. Yeah, I always end up breaking my new years resolutions a few months or even weeks into making them! I really like your plan to save. That will be a very fulfilling resolution! I'm loving this outfit. I love the leather pants and the furry jacket! Those are two of my favorite trends this season. I also love how the scarf really pops against the all black. I hope you had a fabulous New Years Sam! I'm excited to hear how the savings goes! And I agree-I could never ever give up shopping!! : )
