Goals for 2015

*Please Note: This post has been imported from my previous blog, Organized Magnolia*

This has been such a wonderful ride and I'm really glad I started this blog. I know my intentions and vision have changed since I started this blog, but hopefully you all still enjoy it! I have created a couple resolutions that I hope I can keep this year. They are a little more customized to the direction my blog is going in. I just hope I can keep them!

1.) Staying Organized In Belgium
I have to stay organized in a foreign country. Do you know how hard this is going to be? I need to stay organized but also be very mobile. I'm only going to be living here for six to nine months! How am I going to do this?

2.) Don't buy things Because Of The "Where Else Could I Get It" Sense

3. )New Blog Design
I have been using a Blogger Template by 17thAvenueDesigns on Etsy (found here). If you struggle with designing, I would recommend seeking help. You don't always have to do everything by yourself.  I had always planned on learning html to design my own blog. This blog design was a good interval between the beginning of my blog and finally knowing enough html to design a blog. 

4.) Create A Happiness Jar 

5.) Knock of Bucket List of Places to Travel
So I'm in Europe. I think I can knock off a couple of places I need to go to on my Bucket List. Here are some of them: Belgium (Check), Germany, Austria, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Luxembourg, Sweden, Portugal, Norway. 

6.) NO Shopping Online

7.) Start Saving Money

I have this horrible habit of what I call "Tourist Shopping". I'll pick something up and say "Who cares if I don't need this?!? I'm in Europe. I should definitely get this!" I keep forgetting an important point though: I have to be able to get it home from Antwerp, BE to Atlanta, GA USA. Kind of a long trip and I'm limited to only a couple of boxes for shipping. 
One of my biggest goals this year is to create a Happiness Jar. I don't enjoy the little things enough and I am a jealous person at times. I need to be grateful for what I have. As soon as I find a jar or some kind of container, I'm going to write the date and something that made me happy every single day.
I am absolutely horrible about this. I love shopping online. It is my go to feel good thing. I have a bad day at work equals shopping online. I fight with a friend, I shop online. Its a bad habit that I need to kick. Plus my credit cards would love a breather. I hope to find a different outlet. Like if I'm feeling really down, take a walk. Find a quiet corner. 
I want to buy a house someday so I need to start saving!
