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?

Eveready - Trusted Through Time

Has it really been 40 years? That sounds like a long time ... for me and my Eveready battery partnership.

I remember using Eveready in all our toys, AM radio, polaroid camera and flashlights at home. I can say that Eveready really made a difference in my life.

At stormy times, Eveready powered our flashlights to provide light. My family and I were then keep abreast with the typhoon updates and current news even during power outtages thanks to eveready battery-powered AM radios.

It took a while for me to understand how important it is to build trust.

Eveready was there to provide light as I study my lessons even during frequent brownouts. It provided me with amusement by powering my favorite brickgame and portable cassette player.

Eveready was there when I was burning my eyebrows during my college days. I was assured that I will be able to study my lessons in the worst weathers for as long as I have Eveready batteries at my disposal.

I met my better half at work, got married and now have a child of my own. Eveready bore witness to these life changes as it powered the cameras that captured my fondest moments.

Over the years, new influences have risen from sport stars, TV personality and inspirational leaders capturing hearts and minds. Hair has been curled, straightened, cropped, techni-colored, bleached, extended and dreadlocked. The Fashion has had skirts short, long, mini, and short again. Underwear has become over wear.

Despite the altering of outward appearances and the technological advance booms, there has always been and always will be a constant. That is, Eveready battery will always be my trusted brand.

This is my official entry to Everyday Eveready Moments
