New Year's Resolutions

2010 is ending and so it's that time of the year when we set our personal goals for the upcoming year.

Here are my New Year resolutions:
Live frugallyI will work to reduce my expenses by training myself to buy only what I need and not what I want.
I’ll have a no-spend week to put on hold spending for the entire week. I will leave the credit cards at home and use cash to shop for basic needs so I’ll know exactly how much to spend. I will buy regular foods items in volume when it is on sale and opt for generic, store brands. I will schedule a couple of meatless meals during the week.

Resolve to be active and fitI dont want any disease to throw me into bankruptcy so I will start eating smart and do exercise. I will take in food in moderation. By being healthier and fit, I can keep health problems at bay and live longer.

Work towards financial securityI will set aside more cash in savings and my retirement fund. I will take on online job opportunities to earn extra cash. I will invest in a pension plan.

I will be environmentally responsible I will adopt a simpler lifestyle to regulate my carbon footprint. Scaling back my purchases on processed food, clothes, furniture will lower down the carbon cost of producing these items.
I will reduce the amount of plastic bottles and disposable items I purchase by bringing my own water bottle and reusable cloth bags. With less waste from my home, there would be less greenhouse gases from the landfill that receive my garbage. I will teach my family to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Have you made you own list too?
