Anyway. In the realm of things more under my control than the weather, here are some goals for March!
1. Shop around for insurance. Our home owner's/auto insurance has sky rocketed in the last few years. We've been happy with the coverage, but I think the pricing is no longer competitive. I've heard that Minnesota had the highest insurance losses in the country last year, which would explain an increase. My goal for the month is to find out if our policy is priced competitively and to switch providers if we find a better option. If you have an insurance company you love, let me know!
2. Set up our external hard drives. We bought our first Mac this Fall and I have yet to set up our external hard drives, which means there are thousands of photos stored on my SD card, which means it takes forever to download photos from our DSLR which means I haven't been using the DSLR. This is simply a case of fear of the unknown. I don't know if our drives will work with the Mac and I haven't taken the time to find out. It's time to find out.
3. Read 2 books. Two books seems to be the sweet spot for me in a month. I know it's boring to have the same goal every month, but keeping it on my goal lists keeps me focused on reading, which I'm loving.
4. Make 1 Craigslist sale. We have a couple large-ticket items that we need to sell on the ol' Craigslist. We've been putting this off for a long time, but I'm tired of storing things we're not using and we'd like to add the cash to our car replacement fund. If we can sell one item in March, I'll be happy!
There you have it. Four not-so-exciting goals for the month. I'm excited to get this stuff done, though. It's time to check these off the list and free up some mental (and physical) space.
What are your goals for March? Do you have an insurance company you love?
