OneWord: Continuing to FOCUS

to concentrate: to focus one's thoughts

My goal in 2017 is to be able to point to concrete achievements, accomplished because I continued to FOCUS. Here it is Wednesday, and I've saved approximately $15 by brown-bagging it twice this week and last night I took a bag of magazines out to the recycling bin.

Do $15 and a bag of paper make an appreciable dent in my debt or my clutter? No. But the saving and disposing do make me feel better about myself and make me want to continue in this vein.

A positive sign of the times

This sign is about to begin appearing on Chicagoland commuter trains. I'm THRILLED! This has always been my biggest pet peeve about public transportation. So glad others feel the same way. Maybe things will begin to change.
