Blog-tember Day Two // Current Goals

I’m back for the second day of Blog-tember! Today’s prompt is to write about your current goals, so here are my goals for September.

September Goals || Grace to Grow Blog

  1. Blog at least three times a week. I should have plenty of inspiration with the Blog-tember prompts! I’m hoping to write more than three posts a week, but it’s better to have low expectations so you can beat them, right?

2. Read four books (at least two non-fiction). I have so many books that I haven’t read, mostly nonfiction because I always seem to make time for a good novel 😉 I really want to make a dent in that pile. Two won’t make much of a difference, but it’s a start!

3. Set up a budget. When I was working at my last job, I used the Mint app on my phone to give myself a budget. I haven’t done that since I started at my current job, so that’s a priority for this month. It’s way too easy to spend money on coffee and books if I don’t give myself some limits!

4. Movie/coffee with a friend. One of my goals for the year is to spend more time developing my friendships. It’s been a long time since I’ve really been able to spend time with my best friend, and I think we could both use an afternoon out, having fun and catching up.

5. Send a package to my sister at college. She has a lot fuller schedule this year than she did last year, so I want to be more intentional about encouraging her and cheering her up. Hopefully she isn’t reading this 😉

So there you have it! Five goals for September. I’m hoping to post next month about how I did, and then set some goals for October.

What are your goals for this month?

  1. I love your goals! I used Mint for awhile and really thought it was useful and so user-friendly! my husband and I now use YNAB (You Need A Budget) and we aren’t quite sold on it. It is zero-based budgeting where every dollar is accounted for. I miss Mint because YNAB seems to overcomplicate things.

    I have a similar goal for developing friendships! We want to invite either a single friend or a married couple over for dinner once a month to practice hospitality while getting to know them better.

    1. Mint really is easy to use, so that helps me stick to it! 🙂 I’ve heard of YNAB but I haven’t tried it. Simpler is always nice!

      That sounds like a great idea! And having a timeline of once a month means it isn’t one of those goals that’s easy to justify putting off until sometime in the future 🙂
