101 Things in 1001 Days *Update*

Last January I started the "101 Things in 1001 Days" task and I'm glad to see I have a good amount completed in one year! Although I could do more, I'm happy with how much I got done!

    what an awesome list! I LOVE this idea - I'd love to try something like this some time and keep track of the ones I accomplish. (I secretly love crossing things off a list!)

  2. I love it! I don't cross it off right when I do it but every couple of months I go through it and update it!

  3. That's a long list of goals. I love it! Happy New Year!

  4. Props to you for completing 20 goals! And #100 is pretty awesome. Hope you are having a blast with your new job :)

  5. Ugh, I really need to get on the unsubscribing bandwagon. It's so easy for me to just hit delete every time but I know it would be easier in the long run to unsubscribe! That's going to be one of my February goals :)

  6. # 7 is one I can't do lol and #54 is my favorite thing to do! Thanks for stopping by the Lavish Lemon Link Up!

  7. First thing, I love reading lists! Great idea! Second I'm super impressed with all your ideas ... You put a lot of thought into this list and I have been inspired to make my own list ! Thanks for joining the blog hop, see you next week

  8. Chinese food is my weakness! I don't know if I'm going to be able to do it but I'm going to try!

  9. If you go to it makes it super easy to unsubscribe to all the websites with one click!

  10. Great job getting stuff. I started making a 101 list last month I need to get it finished.

  11. Wow! You're doing a great job with your list! I'll have to look into writing a list of my own!

  12. Great list! You inspire me to try my own, and looking at the comments you'll be able to cross off #2 soon!

    great list! I need to try this because I tend to forget some of my goals for the year... Thanks for sharing and congrats on hitting the 20 goal mark

  14. You should do it! I love the idea of it and keeping track of it!

  15. Thank you! You should write one of your own!

  16. It really is a great way to keep track of it!

  17. Stopping by from the Lavish Lemon blog hop...this is such a fun idea! Love your list!


  18. Wow there are so many great things on this list! Congrats on crossing off some of them already :)

  19. I am definitely doing one of these this year! Love this idea, especially that I hope it will keep me accountable. Great list.

  20. Congratulations on your progress so far! I love the idea of saving $10 for every goal... once I finally get my list in place that is going on it!

  21. I think that is one of the hardest goals I set for myself!

  22. I'd love to see your list when you finish!

  23. Thank you for linking up with the Thrift Sisters.
