101 in 1001: Janaury 2012 Update

January Update for my 101 in 1001 Project.

#3: Go on a date a month for 6 months

#12.   Have a girl’s night once every other month (6/16): The Bachelor started back up this month so we had a viewing party at my house. Some girlfriends came over for pizza and reality tv.

49.   Join a Sunday School Class. We took the first step in making this happen. Our church doesn’t really have “Sunday school classes” but they do have newly married groups filled with 5 couples plus a mentor. The group focuses on the fact that we are all in the same stage of life and how to grow together in our spiritual journey. I am excited for this group which will actually start in the middle of February, however January we actually met our group and got connected for the first time.

51.   Do five random acts of kindness. (2/5). We went to Dinner with a gift card a few nights ago. It was a place we normally don’t frequent but the gift card was for more than we could eat or take home with us in one sitting. There was only some change left on it, but it still felt good not to waste it. We just asked the cashier to take it off for the person behind us.  Nothing big, but a little goes a long way sometimes.

#67 I am a visual person so it is fun to use Pinterest for recipe inspiration. A few weeks ago we made the bacon wrapped honey glazed chicken strips. It was intended for an appetizer however we paired it with mashed potatoes for our dinner.  It was fantastic. Check out the original recipe here.

82.   Cut coupons and try to save some $ for 3 months. (1/3). This was the first month that I only went to the store with coupons in hand. Now, I am not an “extreme couponer” but I did save  over $10.00 with coupons alone for just 3 trips to the grocery store in January. Of course these coupons were combined with store discounts so overall I saved $42.00 in the month of January.  In our house that is over 5 days of meals for free!

What goals did you accomplish this month for your 101 in 1001 challenge?
