Your Gorgeous Wall O' Goals

Making The Lists and Accomplishing All The Things are practically my favorite hobbies. 

Of course, I have a never-ending, constantly-evolving list of yearly goals, but since it's a piece of notebook paper taped to the wall, it's less than inspiring.  And while I know the rest of the Internet loves nothing so much as aspirational Pinterest accounts and vision boards, that stuff just isn't quite my style. 

Enter: Wall O' Goals.

Don’t use January to beat yourself up

January always seems to be about making new starts. Quitting things, cutting down on things, doing more of other things… I, of course, thought I was above falling for the hype. I'm an Offbeat Homie, I don't need to buy your exercise video just because it's January! Obviously.

You owe me a dollar! A self-improving way to save for big goals.

My beloved and I are not the neatest people on earth. We try, and we spend quite a bit of time each week cleaning up our humble little home, but ultimately the place is usually a little messy.

That being said, he has a habit of leaving his shoes smack in the middle of the front door, and I trip over them every day when I get home from work. This shit drives me INSANE.

One day I snapped. I told him every time he leaves his shoes in front of the door he owes me a dollar. The habit persisted, and every dollar he gives me goes straight into our wedding bank.
