2013 Resolutions - Make it do, make it last or simply make it!

I'm following the lead of the Frugal Queen who has made a 2013 resolution to Fix Broken Stuff. I like that idea and am expanding it to Fix Up Stuff! as one of my resolutions for the year.

So what is included in Fix Up Stuff? That means I want to:

- figure out how to refresh both wooden desks so the wear and water stains aren't as evident
- repair the dog's extra bed next to the computer desk so it can be washed regularly
- mend or alter anything that needs it
- finish cleaning the basement floor
- change the hoses on the washing machine
- create a low budget plan for minimal remodels of both bathrooms

and that is just off the top of my head.

This is going to be a budget stretching year for many people. Want to join me in fixing up what you already have?


  1. Yes, and my goal is also to join the compact this year, with certain exceptions

    1. Joining the Compact is a great goal - I wish you well on that resolution.

  2. Great challenge idea! You have a good list there... keep us updated!
