New Year Resolution’s 2018

New Years Resolution's 2018

OK, so day is New Year’s day 2018. Welcome 2018, but how did that come around so quickly. It feels like it was only 2010 a few days ago? Answers on a postcard. Anyway, here are my New Year Resolution’s 2018.

New Year Resolutions 2018

So in 2017, because I was in my last year of my degree, I decided not to commit to any new year resolutions. Back in 2016 I made a new year’s resolution to enter a competition a day for a whole year. Although a bit on the time consuming side when you add it all up, I did win around £200, and kept the resolution.

Resolution Number 1

So, one of new resolutions in 2018 is too, enter a minimum of two competition’s a day for the whole year. That is my commitment anyway. However, my plan is to enter as many competitions as possible, including for things I do not want or need. Should I win anything I do not want or need, these will be donated to others or charity.

Resolution Number 2

My second resolution is to save money and reduce my carbon footprint. My resolution is to reduce my usage of Electric, Gas and Water year on year. I have all three metred and the volumes for 2017. So to succeed in this resolution, all three need to be under the volumes for 2017 at the end of 2018.

Resolution Number 3

Resolution number 3 is to donate a minimum of £100 across the three main charities I support (Papworth Hospital Charity, Magpas Air Ambluance and The British Lung Foundation). As well as a minimum of £25 worth of food to my local foobank (St Ives Food Bank).

Resolution Number 4

Last but no least my last resolution is to save money this year. By the end of the year I want to have added a reasonable three figure amount to my savings pot. I am going to be realisitic and say at least £250 by the end of the year, but ideally a lot more. To do this I am hoping to reduce spending, get second-hand or free where possible, and budget well.

So, I think four is enough for 2018 and I think all my New Year Resolutions 2018 are achievable. I will provide regular updates on all three and you can check my charity donations on my Charity page.

Happy New Year 🙂
