Weekly Wishes, Clean Slates

I link up with The Nectar Collective for Weekly Wishes. This is an opportunity to share your wishes, goals, and or dreams with everyone. For me, it's a way to hold me accountable to get things done and off my to do list!

This is the deal, I'm starting my list of Weekly Wishes with a clean slate this week because everything from last week, (see it here) is D.O.N.E.! Ahhh, so refreshing to have a clean slate! Now, let me pile a ton of stuff on it! 

1. Sew Lilly Pulitzer T-shirts. I have left over Lilly fabric, and my sister requested a T-shirt with a fancy smancy pocket on it. What better way to use up fabric and fill her request? I can't wait to show y'all what they look like! And I did see a few on Etsy that folks are selling. Maybe I'll have enough fabric left to make a few to sell! 

2. Blog a week's worth of travel posts. Folks, it's time to get serious on this travel post thing. I am only through like day 6 or so of our Europe Tour from LAST YEAR! The best city, in my opinion, has yet to be posted! I would like to do a solid week where it's nothing but travel posts! How great would that be? 

3. Start Couponing.  My little sister has started couponing and is raking in the "hauls" like she calls them. Although she buys things I do not need, like diapers, it's still fun to see that for about 30 minutes of work, she can bring in like body washes for 70 cents. And even if I don't use some things, it wouldn't hurt to keep a small stock pile of items that I can giveaway to friends and family! 

4. Organize book shelves.  I am a book hoarder. I know this. And my problem is, a fun outing includes a trip to the library. I will check out a couple books knowing full and well that I have at least 20 books sitting on m shelves that I haven't read yet. It's true. There is no denying the hoarding now. In an attempt to stop the madness, I've come up with a brilliant plan... to organize my shelves. I will put all of the unread books on one shelf, possibly two, at eye level, so I can see them and NOT check out or buy any books until I finish the ones I already own. Sounds good right? Let's hope it works! 

I think I can complete all of these for next week! That's my goal anyway. I kinda like the clean slate every week!

What are your tips on getting your weekly to-do list complete? I'd love to know! 


  1. Yay for completing your list from last week!! I'm totally a book hoarder too. When I go to the library I usually get a dozen books at a time, I can't help myself!

    My goal for the week is to cut milk jug after milk jug after milk jug for heel supports for the shoes we cut for Sole Hope.

  2. Great goals that you can definitely achieve this week!

    I love Lil Pulitzer fabric, too!

  3. I just talked about an extreme coupon-er I encountered in today's post! It seriously amazes me how much people can save when they take the time to find coupons! It seems a lot of the coupons are things that don't necessarily apply to me, but things like shampoo and body wash I obviously need and I want to know all the couponing secrets!! Also, congrats on completing last weeks list! I hope this week is just as productive for you!! :)

  4. Congrats on completing last week's goals!! Those Lily shirts sound so cute! I really need to catch up on the travel blogging too, I can sense a travel series coming right up on my blog!
