Hooray for May!

I completed almost all of my April goals, including selling our rowing machine on Craigslist! My first Craigslist sale! Let me tell you, the high I got from getting cash for something (a large something) that’s just been collecting dust in our apartment was incredible. We get cash + we get rid of clutter + my new friend now has a rowing machine on the cheap = a win-win-win situation. I procrastinated on this one for 28 days, but am so glad I finally got it together to put up the listing!

On to May! This month I will:
— Clean my makeup brushes (tips here)
— Finish photographing our apartment (about 50% done!)
— Go camping (no. 34)
— Brainstorm, design, and print a master chore/household checklist
— Reread my thesis (no. 96) to remind myself I am a smart and creative cookie :)

You can see all of my 101 in 1001 goals here and my 2013 daily goals here. If you’d like to share your goals for May, I’d love for you to either list them in the comments or leave a link, and I promise I’ll check them out!

  1. This stuff is great for cleaning brushes too – and cheap! http://www.sephora.com/daily-brush-cleaner-P208011

    Are you planning on sharing your master chore and household checklist? I would love to see it, as I’m trying to make one up for myself. Thanks for sharing so much inspiring and helpful information!

  3. Love your goals this month, Emily! Thanks for reminding me that my makeup brushes need a good cleaning, too :)

  4. I love that you’re going to reread your thesis, such a unique idea and a great way to remind yourself of how smart and creative you really, really are!!

  5. Camping sounds like fun! I would love to see your master chore/household checklist when it’s done! (I’m big on lists and organization, so I’m curious to see how you organize your “to-do’s”.) I just posted my goals today:) You can see them here: http://elizabethashleigh.com/life/may-goals-mood-board/

    Happy May, Em!

  6. Camping sounds so fun! I need to get on stuff like that in my life. Have a blessed month!

  7. Love this! I skimmed over your 101 in 1001 goals, and I wanted to let you know that I’d be happy to teach you how to french braid on our camping trip this weekend! Hopefully miss Samantha will let us use her hair as our prop :).

    Cannot wait to see the photographs of your apartment :) Such good memories before you hopefully close on a house!

    @Mel and @Elizabeth I would be happy to share! I’ve been doing a lot of research in the process of putting mine together, so it only seems fair :)

  9. Emily, I absolutely love how you’ve stuck with this, especially since I’ve fallen off the wagon! Hoping to rectify that this coming week! However, I did accomplish many of my April goals (which remain unseen on the blog) and am working on a list for May! Wheeee for progress!

    Yes, read that thesis. Well worth perusing again. You’ll remind yourself what a good job you did, and that it was worth all the work.
