It will have a special forum badge and even a STICKER for people who complete the whole month, which will be cat-themed.
You must establish your own rules about what you are trying to accomplish as your Get it Done December task(s) this month. State them in the first week of the month to get us kicked off.
Each weekend (starting December 7th) YOUR Local Time, you will report how you did on your challenge for the week on this thread. You can report where you’re at and what your biggest challenge and victories of the week were.
Who This Challenge is For
Anyone who wants a little public accountability and weekly discussion about their goals.
What do you get out of participating?
Deep Satisfaction of working on those tasks that hang over your head and not bringing them into a new year
A community to support you as you get sh*t done
A CUTE forum badge for participating in the weekly check-ins
And if you do all 4 week check-ins, you get a STICKER mailed to you. I have only printed these for this challenge.
If you’re in to participate (or on the fence and need encouragement), comment below with your tasks for Get it Done December below
sell or give away more stuff-- currently still have a pair of backup slippers, a scarf, two pairs of boots, several new merino base layers that are too big, a sleeping bag, and a phone that should be sold but I have a suspicion that the guy isn’t going to pay-- some items may not be gone by the end of the month if I’m holding out on a higher price but a lot of it should go!
transfer money to my nieces’ college savings accounts
schedule gutter cleaning (the company I was planning to use has not responded to an email or a follow-up voicemail)
write cards and prepare gifts for my chiropractor and massage therapist
I am a little late but I need this challenge! Garage clean out (and subsequent store room tidy) is desperately needed, even more so since new neighbours moved in in our complex and have stolen a few small items from our garage area. Aim is to clear out all the junk so its just the car. Supplementary aim to list for sale: extra pram, random unneeded baby bits and buy nothing a whole bunch of stuff!
Finish putting up Christmas decorations
Pay C, G, and maybe O bills
Ask tax dude about thing
[secret boring project]
Start 401k roll over process
Clean my desk. Figure out how to keep it from becoming a dumping zone.
Call around for septic estimates
Get photo editing done (myself? pay someone else?)
based on what we’ve seen in past years, dividends and distributions from e-series will pay out Dec 15 or so, so we’ll pull out that number plus a bit more from TD. We want to reduce the amount in TD because the fees are higher, and continue to increase the proportion of our money that is with QT
Request reimbursement from my dependent care FSA for said payment
The form is ready to go. We need to confirm the money is in whatever account (will we do venmo? a check?) it needs to be in, get it to them, and then mail the form. In order to mail it I need to review it with DH one more time to confirm I have it filled out correctly, include a receipt (??) of the payment if necessary, fold it and put it into an envelope, address it, stamp it, and get it to a mail box.
