      My husband and I made joint resolutions to slim down in time for a vacation to New York in October.

I’ve gotten pretty good at couponing in the last year, but I want this year to be even better!

      And of course there’s the treadmill we’re going to buy. The only way we’re able to afford it is because we shop smart everywhere else!

      I read the Bible chronologically this past year. This year I plan on picking a part of the Bible (maybe Paul’s letters) and studying them further. I also want to loose 10-15 pounds of baby weight (my “baby” is 9 years old). With taxes going up, expenses going up, and income going down, my goal is save as much money in all areas.

    • Robyn

      My new year’s resolution is spiritual growth.

      I plan to get a household schedule/binder completed so that I (and others!) know what should be done when.

    • coupongrandmommy

      My resolution is to grow closer to God.

    • esyke623

    • Henry’s Mom

      My resolution is to do away with processed food(baked bread and dried pasta excluded), so more veggies, beans and fruit.

    • Katy

    • Kelsey Taylor

      i am brand new to coupons. I hope to save, save, save this year.

    • SSanctud

      Find a way to stay home, and afford a terrific school for my daughter to attend preK at. Can’t quite figure out how to afford both! Not sure I’ll be doing anything different, except chopping out extras a bit more…

    • rachel

      I know it is super cliche but it is to be healthier. My husband and I eat healthy on a regular basis but have really gotten of track the last few months. Im going to the store today to get veggies and healthy snacks.

    • theaikenparrs

      My resolution is to live more in the moment and try to stop worrying so much about the future–and fret about the past. I don’t really think I will buy anything specific to help with this resolution–but sticking to a budgeting by couponing certainly makes it more likely I will feel less stress!

    • honaker13

      Our resolution is to become debt free! couponing def helps! :)

    • Kimberly

      I hope to learn to make healthier foods for our family, especially for our little one. Healthy foods are much more expensive than most of the stuff in the grocery store, and there are far less coupons for the good stuff than there are for the junk. I love the options Kroger has for healthy eating, and would love to be able to afford it all!

    • sonia

    • My resolution is to be a better couponer. I have slacked off this year but with us welcoming our first child in March I have to get back in the groove!

    • Kelly C.

    • Dana

      my resolution is to give more, such as when i get alot thru couponing i will give alot to others. this is to include giving food and household stuff to my church.

    • Kerri

      I plan to cut my grocer bill as much as possible. With 6 children, and one income, this has to be done. The recent and ongoing price hikes do not help much, but I will beat them at their own game.

    • Alicia L.

      my comment won’t post….

    • abaig

      To cook more meals at home and to get back into couponing more.

      I plan to try to get healthier and by doing this I will be shopping for less soda/candy and more fruits and veggies. I also plan to be more dedicated in the things of Jesus and my family. To trust in him, read my bible more faithfully, and to spend as much quality time with the ones I love that I can. Lastly I want to do my best to spend less and save more to pay down my school loan debt before I finally look for a teaching job in the fall when my baby girl starts Kindergarten.

    • Steph

      My main goal is to get more organized and I am hoping that when I become organized that my management of time, money and weight will also get better. I plan on cutting back on purchases in the new year. I think as a couponer it becomes easy to accumulate stuff that I don’t necessarily need. My goal is to purchase necessities.

    • Amie

      My resolution is to save as much as possible and spend as wisely as possible. I just found out that I am expecting another child so I will need to save for 2 mos lost income, medical bills, and a larger car. I want to be the best I can for my family so that 2013 is a great year for everyone.

      My family is going to eat healthier without going overboard. Of course we still need pizza night! More fresh fruits and veggies! I am going to be picking up more of the bagged salads at Kroger that I can use the same day that are on Manager’s Special. Can’t beat a salad to feed your family for .49! I also intend to spice things up a bit in the kitchen. Use produce and spices that we have never eaten before. Try something new. :)

      My New Years resolution is to finish all my Christmas shopping by thanksgiving, which is when I have been starting it.

Can’t wait to get started!

      My resolution is to eat more healthfully by cutting out dairy, artificial sweeteners and sugars. Shopping for produce at Kroger will help with that!

        Do you have an Aldi store in your area? Produce is much cheaper there but the selection is small compared to Kroger.

    • blessedsmith

      buying more fruits and veggies to help drop the pounds

      Trying to be practical in every area of the home——Kroger and Southern Savers can help me do that.

    • mlt1987

      I am on my second year of being thankful. Everyday I post something for which I am thankful. I have tried concentrating mostly on the stuff that I would find irritating or worse, recognizing the good that God does in every circumstance in my life.

    • Andrea

      My resolution is to exercise more and eat healthier foods. Several of these Special K products will help with my resolution.

    • Nessa

      Two of my resolutions are to save more money when shopping and exercise more :-)

    • Definitely time to lose those 20 lbs and buying healthy food at Kroger would certainly support that goal.

    • KWADE-teacher

      I teach in a small private school and I come across hungry students each morning or I see kids eating things that are so unhealthy. So, my resolutions this year are to be proactive with the students in my class and get volunteers to have healthy items for students to choose from each morning. There are only 5 months left in the school year so I want to find donors and volunteers to do more than just talk about our students being healthier, but to help them get there. I also think that this will push parents and the faculty to do better.

    • Amanda

      At 39 years old, I am having my second baby. My other “baby” is 14 and is eating us out of house and home. My New years resolution is to be more diligent with couponing.

There may come a day in the near future when our stockpile may be an avenue to share the gospel by sharing food and necessities with others.

    • Carol S.

      My New Years Resolution is to eat healthier, so yes, I will be shopping at the grocery store more often – mainly for nice fresh produce!

    • Bonnie M

      My resolution: To stop smoking. Something I have struggled with before and hoping that buy buying “aids” such as gum or crunchy vegi’s will help. Coupons also help with this since I can use it to buy these items to help me.

      I am planning to get really organized as we are finishing a big home renovation and I am going through everything to purge and keep only what we need! Happy New Year!

    • Idoiq

      I plan to do a better job saving money. I save my weekly coupons from the newspaper, but rarely get around to cutting them out and redeeming them. I even purchased a high tech coupon organizer over six months ago and have yet to use it. I plan to clip and print coupons and actually use them to save money on our grocery bills. I plan to get started with the $5.00 I won playing the Pop to Save game!!

I probably need to buy a new alarm clock!

      My resolution is to make my family strong. With 3 boys, all involved in sports, we rarely have a regular “routine” at night. I am hoping with better planned dinner menus and maybe a little weekend batch cooking, we can hold on to as much family time as possible to talk and to work on our nightly Bible reading – we only got about 3 weeks in last year. =( I just want to simplify out lives, make smart money decisions, and enjoy these years with the least amount of stress as possible.

      To be an amazing mom to two beautiful girls and a great wife to a soldier. I am in my early twenties and often called an army wife but I just don’t want to be called that and it upsets me because they all have no idea that I also served this country along side my husband. We had a tour to Afghanistan together and we decided that I should finish my time and get out and take care of the kids and the family. I also want to help other ARMY WIVES with their obstacles.

    • Gmcouponer

      We are trying to pay off all our credit cards this year. So we are setting down as a family and reducing some of our un necessary bills. Selling stuff we just thought we had to have and hardly ever use. Make more time for each other by shopping together, watching movies at home, and eating more healthier meals at home to reduce spending out of pocket at restaurants. We plan to watch what we eat, loose weight, and reduce our debt, while we grow closer as a family. Reading our Bibles and placing trust in Jesus. With his strength and patients with us we can do it.

    • tnjcent

      I plan on using Jenny’s site more diligently in order to save money and not be wasteful. I plan on not printing any more coupons than I actually will need andl use in order to help the environment. I plan to be more thankful of this site and use it as a steward to help those around me.

    • wwgoddess99

      To stick to budgets. I’m great at making them, but I have a hard time sticking to them. I rationalize extra expenditures especially for my loved ones.

    • Yvonne in AL

      Love more!

    • Celina Thomas

      We plan to eat better and lose a few pounds. We plan to purchase more fresh fruit and vegetables and also stop processed foods. The gift card would help us to achieve that goal.

      Teach my young adults how to coupon; ie teach a man/woman how to fish. Continue to coupon to become debt free

    • kristin

      My resolution is to buy only things we need. It’s easy to get caught up and what to get every free deal, whether you need it or not.

    • Rachel

      I plan to continue to lose weight. I will surely be shopping for healthy eating items this week!

    • We are having our first child this summer … and my resolution is to lose the baby weight in a healthy way and not break the bank with a newborn.

    • mrhodes2

      Resolutions are always to be more patient (with myself), be the best Mom I can be at all times and try to always realize how very lucky I am to be living in a small house and try not to compare my happiness to others and just be content at where I am at and enjoy my kids while they are young!!!

    • Liz

      My goal is to bring my lunch to work 3 out of 5 days a week. I’ll need groceries in order to accomplish my goal so Kroger is definitely a part of my resolution

    • mydeb

      I am resolved to not be as wasteful. I want my family to throw away less food and take better care of our belongings.

    • Ihope to eat for better health and save money

    • Lane

      I don’t do resolutions, but rather I’ve committed to continue exploring healthier ways to feed my family while staying within a set budget. Most importantly and despite others having said it so much more eloquently, I’m committing to spend more time in God’s precious Word so that I can know Him more and be better equipped to serve my husband and children according to His will.

    • Ellen

      I plan on living off my stockpile this year and see how far I can go.

    • dawg4

      I have committed to eating healthy and regular exercise. I already workout about 4 times a week, but I will definitely be eating more fruits and especially fresh veggies!

    • I hope to stick to a budget and pay off more debt! The couponing is definitely helpful!

    • A.Floyd

      I would like for my family to eat better and work toward saving as much money as possible to become debt free. This is my goal this year and using coupons is a part of it.

    • I resolve to lose weight and I’ll be shopping for more fruit!

    • Karen

      I plan to eat a wider variety of fruits and veggies from the local farmer’s market! This way, I hope my family and I are healthier and we support the local farmers too. Here’s to giving greens and figs a try…

    • Teresa

      Eat more healthier with fresh fruit from the produce department to lose 54 lbs this year

    • Erin

      We are working to make a habit of healthy eating and exercise. We switched from pasta to Joy rice spinach pasta. Pretty good!

    • I plan to do more bulk cooking. I am doing this for several reasons – time, money, convenience – but mainly to teach my children how to cook efficiently and to ensure more family time/sit down dinners.

    • jo

      I want to dissect a frog…

    • Dereck

      My New year’s resolution: go on a get away vacation with my wife.
      In the nearly 6 years since our first child was born (we have three), we have not been able to go anywhere by our selves. We simply have not had the money or the oppertunity to make it work
      Now we are in a little more stable situation financially and if we can save enough money over the first half of the year, we will be able to fly grandma out to take care of the kids and we can go on our first vacation as a couple (even if it is only for a two or three days) since our honeymoon.

    • lisae

      My resolution is to not sweat the small stuff and I will be shopping less

    • Lora

      Get in better shape, I have to keep buying healthy foods

    • kim

      To spend more time with family and friends than less important things like cleaning house. The house is always going to need cleaning but family and friends won’t always be here. Doesn’t mean I won’t clean, but I won’t put off friends to clean.

    • nurix

      My resolution is eat and feed my family more fruits and veggies. My Kroger store (around the corner) has everything I need to do it! =)

    • lil A’s mom

      i for sure need to loose weight. I get so frustrated with myself! eating fresh fruit really helps curb my eating, so I have been buying lots of citrus lately

    • Julie

      My resolution is to find ways to be more efficient as I try to save as money for my family while still making spending time with my husband and kids a top priority. It is easy to get caught up in getting all the great deals that quality time with family gets lost.

    • Jennifer

      Resolution is to make coffee at home instead of buying it out during the week. So I will be shopping for coffee at the grocery store instead of Starbucks.

    • Cece

      I have so many resolutions this year. Why only have one? This is the year I have decided to get my life organized and get healthier and save money. stop procrastinating, exercise more, read more, cook more at home, no more going out to eat, haha, expand my garden, graduate college in March and get my first real job!! And….finally get a decent car. Sounds like a lot but I think 2013 is my year!

    • Vicki Hornsby

      Well, like millions of others, I plan to cut back on my eating and try to change my eating habits. The women in my family are working and motivating each other to be healthier, and we will use Bible verses to give us that little push that is needed. I plan to shop for less ice cream and more fruit and veggies!

    • devgwen

      I am really embarassed to admit this but I really need to watch my potty mouth. My 2 year old was in Lowes last night announding to every one that Mommy says the D word….oops.

    • Denise

      I’m going to try to be more conscious of using up all the food I buy, not letting it spoil, eating up those leftovers.

    • littleme

      I am going to be more organized with my personal life. At work it is easy to do, I guess because I’m paid for it, but personally is much harder. I also want to be a more patient person in every aspect of my life.

      My resolution is to be more conscious of what my family eats by buying more natural and organic products.

    • vanessajhooks@yahoo.com

      My resolutions this year are to shop with a health-concious mind and to give more. I love couponing and giving away the goods that I worked hard to purchase with money or coupons. I don’t stockpile my products, someone can be using them–my goal is to give MORE!!!

Then I’ll be ready to tackle helping my husband resolve some health issues, becoming debt free and spending more time in my Bible!

    • Lauren

      Try to cook more at home rather than eat out.

    • CimP

      I don’t usually make resolutions, but this year I want to save more money. I have 3 kids and they are getting older and with them getting older there getting more expensive. So if I can cut some cost of living that would be great. thanks

    • Theresa

      My resolution is to work to reduce my grocery budget in ways that I have previously passed by due to thinking that such a method “wouldn’t likely work for me.” While we have already significantly reduced the amount of money spent on groceries this past year, we are still in need of cut-backs in this budget category. Through shopping carefully by trying out previously-ignored tactics, I plan to work toward meeting this goal in 2013.

    • kcblue

      My resolution is to simplify my life!

    • Teresa

      I am going to shop for more healthy snacks….fruits and vegies!

    • I plan on sticking to a budget and couponing more. And to be more health conscious about what I feed my family.

    • Patricia

      I plan to de-clutter my closets,home, and basement/garage. I’ll be shopping for P&G cleaning products and organizing bins.

    • My resolution this year is to make more time for myself, weither its reading a new book, working out, or catching up on some of my favorite TV shows. As a stay-at-home mother of 2 young girls and a few extra kiddos most of the week I feel I have lost some of the attention that is needed to make myself complete (spiritally, emotionally, and physically). I am very excited to see what 2013 has in store for me!

    • Kellie

      My resolution is to be more organized. Running a business, couponing, and two small children makes it difficult to plan, but I can do this!

      My resolution this year is fitness – FITNESS FOR MY 2 AGING CATS! Which means I will need to budget more shopping money – hopefully with coupons, etc. – in order to buy them higher quality foods. Thank you & Happy New Year to you & your followers.

    • Mickey

      I plan to reduce my grocery bill more than I did last year and I will be sharing with others on how to save.

      I am going to incorporate more veggies into my diet. Produce coupons are rare, so I’ll probably do mostly canned / frozen!

    • Carol

      My goals are to be more physically active and fit, and more regular in prayer. BTW, I got $1 off both times I played the game.

    • Katie

      I plan to try my hand at clean eating (cutting down on all things procesed). Kroger is my only store in the area, so I’ll be doing LOTS of shopping!

    • Bianca

      I want to spend more time with my kids and help my toddler read. In order to manage my time I will have to be better about freezer meals, doing laundry when kids go to bed and exercise to get more energy. This is a goal I started a couple weeks ago and I am staying on top if it! Phew!

    • Mary Ann Rimmer

      One of my new years resolution is to do better with our budget since we are saving for a down payment for our first home. My husband and I will be taking through Financial Peace University curriculum. We will be taking a live class and I hope to apply it in how we view our finances.

      My resolution is to continure my healthy lifestyle and run 1500 miles this year. Of course a Kroger GC will help me buy the food/fuel I need to keep me going!

    • Toni

      My New Year’s resolution came about due to the snowballing difficulties that came this Christmas with our sudden and unplanned acquisition of a needy cat. No matter how much money and time I have spent on trying to solve the problems of this adorable cat, one crisis followed another untiI I realized that I didn’t have all the solutions and wasn’t meant to have them, and that for the sake of a cat I was neglecting the needs of all the people in my life and all the things God commands us to put first. I realize the cat situation is a microcosm of the problem with my whole life, and as a result of what I have learned, I resolve the following: To joyfully submit to God’s sovereign providences and let His Word guide me rather than leaning unto my own understanding, so that I stop allowing temporal crises to consume my life and keep me from the most important things in life.

      • Toni

        I am not in control! God is.

    • pashchuk

      I want to read through the Bible chronologically this year and will be using the online ESV plan so I can read on my computer or phone or listen (when I’m nursing).

      I want to start car pooling. My dad used to do that a lot, but I haven’t. I got to thinking that this will be a great new year’s resolution for me to save money. The only thing I will need to purchase is gas for my car on the day it is my turn to pick up everyone.

    • Erin

      i thought i posted, but i don’t see it, so here it is again! My husband is in law school and is taking the bar this summer. So I plan to do my part in saving us money with couponing as we have a lot of student loans to pay off, and to be more productive around the house so he can focus on studying and not doing things that I EASILY could have just done myself.

    • Jennifer R

      My resolution is to not give up on the budget and deal finding once our first baby comes. We are desperately trying to find a larger house and save every penny. I’m afraid once the little guy gets here in a few months, I’ll start taking the ‘easy’ way out and blow our budget.

    • missriza

      I have two goals – lose 25 pounds (from my three little ones) and begin saving to buy our land to build our house. Couponing makes me eat more cooked and healthy foods and it helps save lots of money.

      My resolution is to be a better shopper for my family: of course from the financial aspect but also what I buy for them to eat. I am going to try and cut back on the sweets and quick snack things I buy. And I would like to make a better effort in shopping with my coupons!!

    • tegan

      I plan to be better at deligating activities. Four kids, husband, full time job. Everything cannot be done by myself. I need to let go. As many here on your awesome website, I am trying to do the best I can with the resources we have (and deligate some coupon duties to lol).

    • Coupon Joanne

      My resolutions are to have a closer walk with the Lord by reading my bible more and also to help my son (4 yr old), recently diagnosed with developmental delays to make up as much ground as he can. One more – to be a more diligent couponer and make freezer meals more often so we eat at home more. Working toward being able to cut back work hours so that I can be at home more.

    • Lila

      My resolution for 2013 is to get my family’s more in hand and pay down debt. I know Jenny can help with that. Thanks Jenny and all her helpers.

    • Carlene

      My resolution this year is to be a better steward of the money God has given my family. Even though I started couponing late last year, I saw so much savings. Shopping at Kroger has helped me work towards my goal. So I cannot wait to see how much I can save this year.

      I love the Bible reading resolutions. Nothing better for the Christian! I was able to read mine though last year, thankfully. I can honestly say that getting back to coupononing has been one of my top resolutions for 2013. Thank you, Southern Savers, for helping me with this task!

    • margerry

      I plan on being a nicer person to be around, I’ve become a complainer. Mostly because I am not pleased with myself, so being the HUMAN I am I take it out on the ones I love and know love me thus I get away with acting like a brat. I intend to get into shape mind, body and soul and become the person God will be happy with, which in turn I will be happy with, then making my family happy. If you look good , you feel good, When you feel good you do good ! I will be decreasing my sugary fat filled buys, with fresh and healthy buys and a bit more attention to my outward look with more cosmetic products. Win ! Win !Win ! All the way ! There is no time like the present as tomorrow never comes !

Am going to try to do that by eating portion controlled meals at least once per day by using frozen dinners, and adding a lot of fruits and vegatables.

    • andijov

      My resolution is to try and enjoy every moment with my sweet family. To focus on family time together and not material things. That being said, hopefully we wont need to buy much to get there, but family outings are a must so we would probably buy discounted tickets to activities in our surrounding cities to do as a family.

      My resolution is to be thankful more for the blessings I have…especially my family!

    • Monique

      My resolution this year is to let go. I have difficulty moving on in every aspect of the word. If funding is pulled from a project at work, I hate having to just scrap it and start over. If I have a friend who is not any good for me, I have difficulty letting that friend go. So, this year I’m going to cleanse myself and my surroundings of any and all things that are not actively helping me to to progress. I’m going to have to “let go” of a lot of things including some foods I eat regularly, some people who may not have been good for me, and even junk in my house that I keep “just in case.” 2013 Will be all about cleansing. I’m going to start fresh

    • Bill M

      My resolution is to spend less and save more, so I won’t be buying anything to get there…

    • debra

      My couponing has saved so much during 2012. Outside of essentials, I plan on limiting my purchases during the 2013 year to just those things that are at free or nearly free even if it is something that i may not use or need. My friend and her husband have suffered greatly due to the failed economy. They went from making several hundred thousands of dollars a year to almost thirty thousand a year between the both of them. Once a month I carry a goodie bag(s) to them. It is my way of donating part of what I have been blessed with. Purchasing items for free or nearly free will allow me to give more to them.

    • It’s all about laundry detergent in 2013. I’m going to make the homemade laundry soap which should save me some serious big bucks

      Eat healthy, so I stay healthy! Fruit and veggies

    • Krista

    • JHJ

      Like so many others, I plan to dig deeper into God’s word to help keep me grounded in all areas of my life…after all, He is interested in everything we do, even using coupons to help save more of what He has blessed me with. Eating healthier goes without saying!

    • rlilly

      i have two resolutions this year, 1- to be able to respond calmly and graciously when my teenagers become disrespectful. That’s going to take a lot of grace from God and more concentration on my part! 2- To be more active in my church’s connection groups.
      To help me with both of these, I am currently on a Daniel Fast to give more time and attention to my relationship with God and hear His voice more clearly. That means I’m picking up a lot more fruits and vegetables at the store! I’m also trying out a lot of vegan recipes — finding some that are especially good!

    • I’m planning on living my life in a manor that is more reflecting of Jesus Christ. With this resolution I am going to try to be a better wife, mother and homemaker. This website and couponing for things that we need not want will help me to attain the better homemaker part of this resolution. Thank you so much for this amazing website!

      My resolution is to simplify. I want to maintain my current level of couponing, budgeting, and organization/planning while feeling more at ease doing it all! I plan to simplify my wardrobe, create a go-to list of meals/groceries that I can pull out during a hectic week, and finally implement that cleaning schedule to stay on track day to day! As far as shopping goes, I was going to purchase a few baskets/shelves/etc. to help organize a few areas in our home, but in an effort to simplify, I ended up repurposing what we already had, and in the end, saving money!

      My New Year’s Resolution is to be more educated on my husband’s illnesses and plan meals according to the doctor’s specifications. He is a diabetic and heart patient who is overweight(mostly due to medication side effects). I hope through meal planning, vitamins, and exercise that I can help encourage him and boost his moral. I will have to start buying a little ammunition for this battle ahead. With the rising cost of medication and office visits…..I will have to decide carefully, how to put all of this in place with only one income. He is truly worth every ounce of sweat that I devote to him.

    • Tabitha

      I know everyone makes the resolution to lose weight. BUT I am joining them this year. I will be the first to admit that I have become lazy since my children are old enough to entertain themselves. Not having a lot of money now, its much easier to just buy unhealthy snacks because they are always cheaper than the healthy ones. This year I want to stop buying the junk foods and start buying the healthy things that will help my family and I.

    • Calla

      My husband and I have decided to pay off our student loans this year, as well as saving up for a new car. We’re going to be much more serious about our budget this year.

      My resolution this year like everyones I suppose is to try and be a more healthier person. I love to go to Krogers when they put out fresh fruits and vegetables.

I think shopping at Krogers for my healthier food choices will allow me to follow through with my New Year’s Resolution.

    • dealzgurl

      My goal is to be more generous–not just to family and friends but to anyone needing a hand. I may not be able to do everything they need done but to do whatever I can to get them closer to their goal. I also want to be able to shop to buy items to fill the bags and bellies of the homeless people that one of my best friends ministers to. I’d love to be able to be an extreme couponer for that purpose.

    • I’m not sure if it’s a resolution, but this year we’re going to keep a ‘hits of happy’ jar, where we’ll write a note every time something good happens to one of us, however small or large, and put it in the jar. Next New Year’s Eve we’ll dump out the jar and be reminded of all the happy moments through the year. I guess I’ll be shopping for a jar, and maybe some pretty notepaper!

    • Sara Mac

      I have started clean-eating! I’m not stressing myself out to stay on this plan like a normal resolution, but I have cooked more than ever this week and had “clean” leftovers” for lunch each day! I would love to buy my “clean” groceries at my local Kroger!

      I’m not eating sugar, flour, nor sodas. It’s not a diet, but I feel that I was eating too much. It was affecting my lifestyle because I wasn’t sleeping enough, and it affected me in school.
      I love fresh food, but sometimes I can’t afford to pay $1 for an apple.

      My goal this year is to make my budget provide for more than just my family’s needs.

    • Danielle T

      i am going to try to eat more veggies and fruits so this gift card would totally help me accomplish that!

    • Jennifer

      My resolution is to invest some money, save for my two boy’s college funds, and save for something that I’ve been wanting for 15 years- dental implants! I plan to buy some silver coins for each of the boys.

    • Christyn

      My resolution is lose weight (which is common) by adding cardio and toning workouts, and eating better instead of eating so much fast food. I work two jobs and just bought a house which involves a lot of unpacking and organizing, so my time is precious and money is still a bit tight. It’s too easy to justify spending a dollar at McDonalds for a quick cheeseburger each time I need to eat instead of going to the grocery store and spending $50+ at a time even though it will feed me for less per meal and be better for me! This gift card would get me started on my way to buying groceries instead of fast food, and would help me get into the habit of buying healthier before I can justify another fast-food run!

    • I’m not really a ‘resolution’ person, but my plan is to be the best helpmate to my husband; to lift him up and encourage him. I plan to do this by making (and sticking to) a meal plan, and to continue using deals and coupons to save our family time and money.

    • Amy

    • debbie

I’d say i’m off to a good start!!

      tbarrettno1 at gmail dot com

    • Well, I don’t have a specific resolution like I have so many years in the past. This year, I’m trying to be intentional about sharing Christ’s love with others in any way I can. I am an ESL teacher and I travel to 4 different schools a week. I come into contact with so many people who need to know the amazing God I serve and the love He has for them. I hope to do things that bring me closer to Christ, so that the world can see Him through me.

    • Cassandra

      Resolution this year is to save lots of money and make lots of money!

    • Melissa

      Quit procrastinating. I tend to not deal with things but wait and deal with them when it becomes absolutely necessary. I need to just do it!

    • Beth

      I plan to buy a printer so I can go back to taking advantage of all the printable coupons!

    • Kelly

      My resolution is to drink less Coke. I will be buying more bottled water, but also reusing the bottles to fulfill that other resolution (less waste!).

    • amandabrooke056

      I resolve to be a better listener in 2013.

    • Kristi

      I don’t have do resolutions, but I do choose “my one word” for the year (idea at myoneword.org). My word for this year is peace (from 1 Cor. 14:33, God is not a God of disorder, but of peace) and I will be pursuing peace in my home, with my children, in my marriage, and in my ministry. While some of this is intangible, some of it will involve getting more organized and buying stuff to help with that!

    • Melanie

      healthier food!!!

    • lindsay

      My new year’s resolution is to stick to my budget

    • Callie

      I plan to lose the rest of the baby weight, my baby is 4mths old. Get better at being a morning person so I can get more done in a day and get back into using coupons better again. We moved about a year ago and I have not gotten into using coupons with the new stores I have to shop at. I am determined to save on groceries this year so we can add more money to our disney vacation fund.

    • Chele

      My resolution is to cook healthier meals for my family and to eat out (mostly fast food) less. I plan to do this by preparing extra food as I cook and freezing part of it. This way I can have a quick and healthy meal during those rushed evenings. I will have to make larger purchases of meat items at a time in order to make this work. Hopefully, I can offset the cost by not purchasing pre-packaged, processed foods. Wish me luck!

    • jill

      be the best mom i can be. Puree fresh veggies for baby food!

    • T.Wyatt

      This is the year that I stick to my resolution! I have given up Coca Cola. I will not be drinking Coke or any other soft drink for at least two months. I am dedicated to buying water. Not drinking sodas will help me lose my “belly fat”. Sugar will only slow me down. NO MORE SODA’S! I hope to have more energy by drinking plenty of water. With energy, I can exercise and stay healthy. 38 and loving it.

    • jrichardi

      To spend time in Bible reading each day :)

    • Konabananas

    • eliza

      I plan to read my Bible through this year, work on more patience, and get organized in our small house.

Goodwill and my sewing machine will become my new best friends this year!

    • Correne

      My resolution is to not go for what’s easy with my baby…but what’s best for her! I will be making her baby food and healthy snacks!

    • BB

      I plan to only buy things that I can save 50% or more on so that I am not paying full price

    • SouthMama

      can I still enter for the gift card?
