Aims for October 2017

Home aims for October 2017

Try 3 new slow cooker recipes. Thinking of a new gammon dish, another Chinese recipe and maybe something like a chicken pie filling.

Sell or donate 10 items. We are near the end of de-cluttering our entire home now. This means that there aren’t so many items left for us to sell or donate. Yay!

Meal plan all month. It went so well in August and September I want to do it again. I’ll be following my meal planning tips and meal planning with mince too, as this is always successful for me.

Find a new radiator cover, order it and get it fixed to the wall. I’m hoping to find one that matches our hall one, so we can take them when we move house.

Financial aims for October 2017

Spend less than £250 on groceries. Daisy is eating more, and I’m doing more cooking from scratch. This means our stockpile needs topping up, and we need to replace some herbs and spices that are very, very old!

Make £400+ from matched betting. The Premier League is a great opportunity to make some money. I’m looking forward to another good month like September was.

Add £150 to my Amazon account. Going to push myself harder this month as Christmas is coming!

Add £500 to Tom’s premium bonds. This may be a bit of a stretch this month but what is an aim if not challenging?!

Online aims for October 2017

Hit 8,800 on my Twitter. This will be a 3-4% increase, so I’m hopeful! I’ll just be engaging as I always do and hoping for the best!

Hit 750 on my Pinterest. I’ve been actively working on impressing my Pinterest and I hope that my followers will reflect that at the end of October.

Hit 3,000 on my Instagram. As above really. Also, 3,000 is a nice round figure so I’m hoping to get there! Want to give me a hand? Please do follow!

Keep my completed posts above 40. It has been above 50 in September but I’m going to have less time coming up.

Create pinnable images for 25 old posts. I fell by the wayside with this last month. I may just aim for 1 per day, not sure how I’m going to approach this yet.

Personal aims for October 2017

Arrange to cross 2 items off our bucket list. I’m hoping we can visit the Emirates Air Line this month and maybe something else too! Woohoo!

Read three books. I’ve aiming to read *The Expansion Game, *The 4 Hour Work Week and then maybe a bit of chicklit or something nice. I’ve been enjoying finding more time to read recently.

Decide what to buy Tom for Christmas. I’m torn between a few ideas and I want to settle on one, so I can save the money!

If you enjoyed this post I’d love it if you could pin it on Pinterest!

Find out what I want to achieve with my Aims for October 2017. I'm sharing my personal, online, financial and home based aims for October 2017.

    Good Luck. I don’t think I understand the concept of Pinterest really, may take another look.
