3 in 30 January Weekly Update

3in30 Challenge

I posted at the beginning of the month that I am taking the 3 in 30 challenge. You can learn more about it by clicking on the button above.

I love this because it's exactly what it says above. Making goals a reality, three at a time. I wanted to post an update on how my goals are going so far.

1. Be more diligent with my time- my first goal was to be more diligent with my time. I felt like I was wasting time each day by not doing things that were more productive. This week I spent less time on the computer and more time working on the house, spending time with the boys with their schooling and really enjoying more one on one time with my husband talking and enjoying each others company.

This coming week I'd like to work more on taking each of my boys separately aside to spend one on one time with them outside of their schooling. Something they are interested in.

2. Save more money- I am really proud of myself this week. In my head I set a goal of saving $50 a week. Something small that I really felt I could accomplish. But I went above and beyond this and was able to save $200. This is huge. I was really aware of where I was going each day and what I REALLY needed to purchase and because of that I was able to keep this much $ in my pocket.

This coming week will not be as great as this one because we had an expense of new glasses for hubby that had to be purchased but I still would like to stick with my original goal of $50 and I feel I can reach that goal.

3. Do a Bible Study- I am happy that I will be journaling through Ephesians this month with an online group. It starts on January 16th. I look forward to reading the entire book slowly and dissecting everything so I can better understand the scripture using the S.O.A.P method.

Well here is what's happening with my goals so far this month. I am happy with my progress and look forward to what's ahead this month...


  1. That is AWESOME to hear about your $200 savings this week!!!
    I will be excited to hear how your study in Ephesians goes.
    Have a great week.

  2. You have really done a lot this week! Sounds great! That is fantastic that you saved that much money. Certainly is a good goal in light of our economy.

    Here's to another great week!

  3. I'n glad to see you spent your time wisely. I let so much time slip away with idleness and meaningless activity.

    You've been an inspiration!

  4. $200 is amazing for your first week! I love your goal to spend one-on-one with with your kids. They will never forget how you invested in them individually.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a commment. I love hearing from you. Many blessings to you!
