Another month has flown by. I tried to make some small, manageable aims this month. April has been a hard month in so many ways, the same as for everyone. We’ve actually had a couple of small jobs done at home, including the rest of our fence, which means we’re able to stay safe at home and enjoy our surroundings.
Home aims for May 2020
Meal plan all month. This helps us to stay on track with a couple of our other aims and saves us money too, especially lately!
Try 2 new recipes. This is outside of my Hello Fresh new recipes I’ll be trialling.
Complete TeamTomm each day in May. This definitely helps to keep my home mostly clean, tidy and organised. It is never going to be perfect but I have a 4-year-old!
Financial aims for May 2020
Make money matched betting. £150+ ideally. I’ve adjusted this down as £200 was a bit of a push last month and I’m trying to keep things realistic at the moment!
Add £100 of Amazon vouchers to my account. I’m going to use these for random acts of kindness, which will be another aim of mine this month.
Make £50 from Prolific. I have fallen out of the habit of checking lots lately but I’m going t make some more effort to open it the I’m online.
Spend £150 or less on groceries. We have Hello Fresh boxes comes this month. I think this is a realistic budget for a few dinners a week and breakfast/lunch when at home every day. (*Grab £46 off your first 3 boxes)
Add £50 to my round-up pot. Each month I just use this to top up my savings, as I’m not able to save much from my usual sources as work is quiet at the moment. Every little helps!
Online aims for May 2020
Join an ad network. Now is the time to start monetising my website in more ways, and to keep diversifying my income.
Hit 8k on Instagram! If you’re not following me why not check out my Instagram?
Update 15 posts. I’m working on SEO at the moment and making a lot of changes to old content. It’s going well, but slow as I don’t have a lot of free time at the moment.
Complete 10 random acts of kindness. I’m going to be hunting down Amazon wish lists to end little gifts from. I really am enjoying this so far, and trying to gift a mix of organisation items, treats and useful objects.
Write 3 new recipe posts. I have lots of photographs already edited and ready to go, as well as lots of notes for ingredients and methods. I’ve been practicing some of the recipes for weeks and weeks ready and just need to motivate myself to get them written up!
Personal aims for May 2020
Walk an average of 7,000 steps per day. I’ve been increasing gradually and want to maintain my good work this month. I’m feeling good, mostly, although I had a few achy days towards the end of the month too.
Read 2 books. Hopefully hey!
Sort our November holiday activities. Ever the optimist that all will be well and we will be going on holiday! I might even change to a hot tub lodge, but that will have to wait until later in the year when I see how work is going.
