Sunday Goals 13: Kicking "Lazy" In the Face. (And Balls!)


Yesterday I went on a day-trip South to Gainesville, Florida to explore Florida's only Geological Park, visit a friend, and check out a couple of museums. Of course I had to stop in at least one thrift store (pictured above, converted motel. It was amazing! Story soon) along the way! There are so many unique thrift  and antique stores along Highway 301- but really...Florida is a picker's paradise.

Oh right, about those goals....

1. Finally install Windows 7 on my computer and back up all files. 2. Make habit of listing all thrifted finds on Craigslist this week.  3. List all the items I set aside to get rid of last week on Craigslist. 4. Restage the antique store booths completely.  5. Make precise action steps and plans for increasing sales.


Goals for March 25th to April 1 (!)

1. Install Windows 7 and Back up all files- no excuses. Do eeet.
2. List all the itmes I set aside to get rid of on Craigslist.
3. Mop, Sweep, Dust, and Scrub the house! Clean, clean!
4. List everything in the house on Etsy/Craigslist- move it!
5. Get back to working on a different task every hour all day to stay productive.
6. Prep for the big group yard sale in front of Treasure House this Saturday.


So Wucha Up To Next Week? Let's hit it!




As #5 suggests, one thing that really helps me hit my goals is to write an exact schedule of action steps for the week. Each hour of the day I accomplish one important task for hitting my goals. It's hard to maintain, but it really helps you kick The Lazy to the curb. I'm never "lazy" but I always strive to be more productive and efficient.


What have you got planned for the week? Let's share and keep each other on-track! As always, I've got many thrifted goodies to show off tomorrow!

  1. Now that I've been doing this for several weeks, I feel like I've got a handle on effective to do lists. I think I used to put down items that weren't going to happen or I wasn't motivated, so they felt like Hard Work. But now, I've got a better idea of how to list things so that I complete them.

    1. Very good, ma'am. Yep, it's all about listing the tiny, easy actions steps that contribute to the huge goals.

  2. I'm definitely on board with goal #4. Sundays are normally my day off for church and family but I hit the ground running come Monday morning.

  3. How is the Craig's List thing working for you, making any money? I haven't taken a road trip in a while. The last one was to Valdosta, Georgia, not very exciting but still an interesting drive.

    1. It definitely helps with sales. I'm going to stay in the habit of listing every item I find, put in the shop, share on thrift shares, or list on Etsy on Craigslist as well for those extra eyes.

      It's especially good for large items like vintage paintings and suitcases that aren't fun to ship.

    2. Awesome, (I've learned a lot from you and the Apron Thrift Girl blog). I have two vintage suitcases and a vintage wedding gown that I -do not- want to try and ship, definitely going to post on Craig's List. Thank you for the idea and pointers!

    1. Oh, there's way sketchier all over town ;) Then again, you're right, kind of weird with all the rooms turned into faux bedrooms to sell furniture. Secret double use for truckers after dark? Hmm...

    2. Eeewwww - Truckers after dark...Lol (great name for a band or TV show). Yup, interesting drive from Florida to the Georgia state line.

    3. Well that is a long and I'm sure lonely stretch of road....Just sayin'
