New Year's Resolutions

This year I am not going for the whole 'new year, new me' thing but more for 'new year, more organised me who doesn't care quite as much about men and more about herself'. I've already written a post about my tips for sticking to your new year's resolutions here, so I'm sure you have been eagerly awaiting a list of my own. Well here they are:

1. Be more organised and tidy
I touched on this one already in my previous post about New Year's resolutions. I think I've had this resolution for about three years now but this time I mean it! I've tidied my room, I have purchased a regular diary as well as an "Action Day" diary for to do lists (there will be a post about that at some point I'm sure) and I am determined to organise and declutter my life! I'm already starting to get stressed out by messiness, which is a good start, and I have the support of my best friend Lauren who is basically Monica Geller reincarnated, so what can go wrong really?

2. Save some money
I am one of those people who is horrible with money and tends to spend the last week of the month eating rice because she's already spent all her money. In 2015 I'm doing the money saving challenge, which involves saving a certain amount of money a week, so £1 in week 1, £2 in week 2 and so on, and I've also made a resolution to eat out less. This doesn't necessarily include meals with friends but more things like getting a bagel from the union shop twice a week when I could have just as easily brought my own dinner. Those expenditures seem small at the time but they add up!

3. Put myself first
This may sound like an awfully selfish resolution, and it kind of is, but in the past few weeks/months I've realised that I need to sometimes care about myself more, especially when it comes to relationships. 2014 has been the year of failed relationship attempts for me so now I'm going to concentrate on myself and being the person I want to be, because let's face it I don't even have time for a boyfriend right now! 

What are your New Year's resolutions?
