What I accomplished today...

September 28th, 2009 at 11:16 pm

I have decided to turn my blog into a record of my daily accomplishments, both big and small. Each day I will give myself a list of five tasks to accomplish. Then, at the end of the day, I will hold myself accountable for those tasks. Some will be finance related; some will not. Although I find that staying on top of all things (cooking, cleaning, etc) only helps me be more financially responsible, so I still think it's appropriate for a personal finance blog.

(Also, I'm been really motivated by the Saving Advice bloggers who've recently been posting all they've accomplished!)

Today I did the following things:

(1) Mailed the rent check. It should arrive either tomorrow or Wednesday, so it will be on time!
(2) Made pasta salad. (Side dish for dinner tonight and tomorrow.)
(3) Finished folding the laundry from all the loads I tackled yesterday.
(4) Wiped down the counter in the master bedroom.
(5) Planned out my work wardrobe for the rest of the week.

This last task is something that I decided to start doing today. I have to dress to a certain level for work, but I don't really have that many articles of appropriate work clothing. Which means every morning is a bit of an adventure! Sometimes I'm running late the the morning and realize at the last minute that I really don't have anything clean that's appropriate. Stressful! This way, I can be assured that I have clothing for the whole week, and that everything I am planning on wearing is clean or back from the dry cleaners. I think that will lead to a happier and more productive me all around!

    OMG I thought of the same thing today since I slept until the alarm went off at 5:45 a.m., (I watched 2 episodes of Forensic files in the middle of the night).

    I am going to start figuring out my work wardrobe too and hang them altogether for each day. I always have my black slacks clean for those days I need something quick like this morning. Black slacks, black shoes and some clean top to go along(I dress what would best be described as business casual, casual).

    I think the 5 things a day is a great idea. I think I will join if you don't mind (not posting necessarily, just doing!). Great job!

    Oooh, I *heart* Forensic Files, too Smile
    You are actually one of the people who inspired me with your list of all the things you were getting done, so you should definitely join in!
