3. Save more money

People want to save money especially after Christmas but after a hard day, some retail therapy is needed!

Reality: Stay up all night long.

5. Read More

I try to read before going to bed but binge watching Friends sounds so much better.

Reality: Watch Netflix instead.

6. Get Organized

Decluttering and putting things in order can be very therapeutic but it takes commitment!

Reality: Everything goes in the junk drawer.
