Woo! One of my favourite months of the year is already over. What a whirlwind! We had a family holiday, celebrated 11 years together, won £0 on the premium bonds (AGAIN!) but generally had a wonderful month. I’m looking forward to seeing what December holds for my family.

Aims for November 2018 – the results

Home aims for November 2018 – the results

Try 3 new recipes in November. Achieved. It’s been a great month for cooking lots of new recipes. I’ve even got a few recipe posts planned for the New Year!

Sell or donate 20 items. Achieved. This was actually more difficult than I anticipated, because of issues with one place taking my donations, but I got there in the end!

Meal plan all month. Achieved. Even on our holiday we meal planned (loosely).

Wrap all Christmas presents. Achieved. I’ve just got a few more to order and I’ll wrap those as they come in.

Financial aims for November 2018 – the results

Spend less than £250 on groceries. Achieved. This is partly thanks to careful planning/using up what we had and partly because my lovely Mum bought the groceries for our holiday. Even with thos,e we would have just come under by around £5!

Make money from matched bettingAchieved. This will help ensure we have a debt-free Christmas again.

Add £150 to my Amazon account. Achieved. I’ve used it for Christmas presents and coffees, but that was exactly what I wanted it for!

Add £500 to car savings. Failed. We’re going to have to work harder in the new year!

Online aims for November 2018 – the results

Build my scheduled posts back up to 20. Failed. Oops again! One day I’ll get back to having a ton of scheduled posts!

List 5 items on eBay. Failed. I ended up donating everything/selling it on Facebook/giving it away to friends and family.

Increase my Pinterest impressions by 10% Failed. You can probably tell I took some time off in November!

Personal aims for November 2018 – the results

Arrange to cross 1 item off our bucket listDoes driving past Stonehenge count? Ha!

Read three books. Achieved. 

The books I’ve loved this month are:

Enjoy a week off work for our family holiday. Achieved. I had 9 days off and it was wonderful!

Enjoy at least 2 days out. Achieved. Colchester Zoo was one of them (Tom & Daisy went), and we had lots of lovely days out during the month on holiday and just enjoying not working too.

The month has gone well. I’m a little disappointed about the online aims but I rested more and enjoyed more time with my family this month. Something has to give sometimes and I’d rather it was the online aims than the home or personal ones.
