Aims for January 2018 – Find out what I want to achieve this month

This post may contain affiliate links.

Happy New Year! Hope your New Year is a fantastic one so far and you’re getting excited about the fresh year ahead. I personally love a New Year! I love setting new goals, make challenges for the year ahead and setting plans too. Being able to spend time with family over the Christmas period is always lovely too so I’m feeling nice and relaxed right now! Here we go – my aims for January 2018!

Find out more about my Aims for January 2018

Home aims for January 2018

Try 3 new recipes in January. I set this goal regularly but I love it!

Meal plan all month. Check back on Friday to take part in my new meal planning linky! I can’t wait!

Find 10 items from my food cupboard to use this month. Presumably leftover Christmas items!

De-clutter 10 items. I’m going to have a look at my toiletries among other things this month.

Financial aims for January 2018

Spend less than £200 on groceries. Should be a doddle, to be honest!

Make money from matched betting. The standard for me now really.

Add £200 to my Amazon account. Want to make a big push on this ready for when we move.

Decide on a savings goal for 2018.

Online aims for January 2018

Hit 10,000 on my Twitter. Just carrying this over from last month!

Increase my Pinterest impressions by 25% at least. I’ve got a few ideas for this and I’m looking forward to updating some more old posts.

Have my completed posts/drafts above 75 for the end of January. I’ve already got a load of drafts, mostly almost done, so I want to move some of these to completed posts. The reason I want such a large amount ready is my Mum is due to have open heart surgery very soon. I want to be able to relax and help her recover, without worrying about my blog not having any new content on it.

Re-purpose 5 old posts. I already have an idea for a few of them. I’ve got some money-making posts that are in desperate need of an overhaul too if I can find the motivation!

Personal aims for January 2018

Exercise every day. This makes me feel great about myself so I want to give this another crack!

Collect another box of items for the food bank to donate at the end of the month.

Arrange to cross 2 items off our bucket list.

Book activities and restaurants for our next holiday.

Pin it for later

Find out what I want to achieve with my Aims for January 2018. I'm sharing my personal, online, financial and home based aims for January 2018.

    Your Pinterest goal sounds interesting. I still have to get into that social media network!

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:36 pm

      Yeah I’m finding it pretty good actually!

  2. Vicky January 1, 2018 / 1:13 pm

    Happy new year! I dream of having 1 completed post on advance let alone 75 haha. I better crack on then.

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:36 pm

      Slowly but surely getting ahead of myself – it definitely takes time!

  3. Joleisa January 1, 2018 / 1:19 pm

    I love seeing what you’re up to! I don’t understand about the Amazon though. Am I missing something? ‘Add £200 to my Amazon account’. I didn’t know that you could add money to your Amazon account!
    Anyway, all the best with your plans and dreams for 2018.
    Keep sharing with us your readers about how we can live a more better, fulfilled lives.

      Do you mean through the JobSeeker app, I am saving up mine (have £20 so far) to buy my husband a coffee maker for his 50th in June. Yes, we lead exciting lives lol

      • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:43 pm

        I mean Amazon vouchers in general from all sorts of websites, including Swagbucks and GlobalTestMarket etc x

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:37 pm

      I mean Amazon from survey websites, Swagbucks etc, I’ll be getting vouchers and adding to my account.

  4. Anosa January 1, 2018 / 5:01 pm

    I like that you’ve split your goals into many sections, I need to declutter and find ways to make money online

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:37 pm

      Thank you! Happy New Year! Good luck to you x

  5. Emma January 1, 2018 / 7:51 pm

    These are some great goals for 2018! I need to go back and update some old posts to make them stronger in terms of SEO and add pinable images to them! Good luck for 2018!

  6. Laura Dove January 1, 2018 / 8:11 pm

    Great goals! I wish that we could spend £200 on groceries, our bill is terrible and I really need to look at ways to cut it down! Maybe I need to do match betting to pay for it!

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:38 pm

      Well we’ve only got one little girl to feed haven’t we! x

  7. Tori January 1, 2018 / 8:40 pm

    That’s a lot of goals but they seem ambitious yet manageable! I like the idea of setting monthly goals especially around meal planning and food spending which I am TERRIBLE at doing!

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:38 pm

      I love goals! Meal planning is something that I have come to love !

  8. Zena's Suitcase January 1, 2018 / 8:47 pm

    These are great goals. I love that you have so many posts in draft. That gives me something to aim for

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:39 pm

      Thanks so much! Just getting ready for my Mum to have her surgery later this month.

  9. Laura Dove January 1, 2018 / 9:16 pm

    Great goals, you sounds super organised and motivated! I have no goals, I prefer to wing it!

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:39 pm

      Thank you! I love being organised. Helps me avoid overwhelm and stress when I’ve got a lot going on x

  10. Ana De- Jesus January 1, 2018 / 9:23 pm

    I have my fingers crossed that your mums open heart surgery will go well! On another note here is hoping that you reach 10 K on Twitter soon x

  11. Laura Haley January 2, 2018 / 1:30 am

    There’s some awesome goals there, Katy. I have no doubt you’ll achieve them (and I’m so impressed you’ve got so many posts sat in drafts-I need to take a leaf out of your book!)

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:40 pm

      Thanks so much! I’ve been working really hard on those recently!

      Thanks so much. I’ve been finding Pinterest is growing lately! Took long enough to get started!

  13. Tracy January 2, 2018 / 10:35 am

    I’ve never heard of Matched Betting but it sounds very interesting – need to be checking that one out! I also really need to get back on track with my meal planning – I know it works, I know it saves me money and I know it makes life a lot less stressful, but I always fall by the wayside. Thanks for the reminded to pick it up again! Happy New Year!

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:41 pm

      Hope you can get back to it now. Happy New Year! x

  14. Kara January 2, 2018 / 11:02 am

    You have some great, realistic goals there although my shopping costs would never be under £200 for a month, but then there are six of us at home!!

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:41 pm

      There is just us and one little tiny girl who eats like a bird! x

  15. Paula @mummyvswork January 2, 2018 / 12:35 pm

  19. Louise January 2, 2018 / 8:12 pm

    Ooh, you’ve set some fab goals for January. And I think you’ll achieve them pretty easily, too 🙂 I need to start meal planning more. At the mo I tend to just shop as I go “/

    Louise x

    • katykicker January 2, 2018 / 8:43 pm

      Thanks so much! Meal planning is a great way to save money too x

  20. The Frenchie Mummy January 3, 2018 / 9:24 am

    I like the way your targets are so specific. I reckon it is better so that you can achieve them easier! Is £200 on grocery your monthly goal? OMG ! I spend so much more than that!!! I will keep an eye on how to spend less!

    • katykicker January 3, 2018 / 12:03 pm

      Yes it is! I’ve already spent £65 though so not sure how it is going to go…!

  21. Rachel January 3, 2018 / 7:16 pm

    Happy New Year! I like this idea of laying out what you want to achieve in one month. Good luck!

    • katykicker January 3, 2018 / 7:37 pm

      Thank you! Happy New Year too!

  22. Baby Isabella January 3, 2018 / 7:29 pm

    • katykicker January 3, 2018 / 7:37 pm

      Thank you! I’m really looking forward to getting ahead.

  23. Stephanie January 3, 2018 / 10:04 pm

    I love meal planning and find it saves so much money

  24. Laura January 3, 2018 / 11:05 pm

    Wow you seem very organised and very impressed with the matched betting – is Amazon with affiliates? Not sure how that works but feel I need to research more into this

    Laura x

    • katykicker January 4, 2018 / 11:28 am

      Amazon is mostly earned from Swagbucks and other survey websites!

  25. PKaurK January 4, 2018 / 8:22 am

    £500 from matched betting is one of my goals as well. 75 posts are a lot! Good luck and I hope your mum’s surgery goes well.

    • katykicker January 4, 2018 / 11:29 am

      Thank you! Good luck with your goal!

  26. Ali Duke January 6, 2018 / 1:58 pm

    You have some great aims. Pinterest is something I am trying to increase as well, going slow but getting there x
