I save money every month, but my goal is to start saving more. I am getting older and probably have about another ten years until I retire, so I need to save more. But.....my husband and I would like to travel on some little short jaunts once in awhile too since my health is improving.

Great post !
I am not setting New Year's resolutions but instead goal setting as it is a far better method than New Year's resolutions in achieving the results you desire - if you're serious that is.
My reasoning, real goals are well-thought out and have high value to the individual setting them.  All goals have a specific "why" which could amount to more than one reason but nonetheless, the "why" of a goal is the fuel that drives every action to achieve it.
Great thought goes into the "how" of achieving goals; people, tools and resources are examined to ensure success - every action is deliberate - no accidents   smile
Real goals are dated - individuals who set goals have a clear picture in their mind as to when they plan to achieve them; this is how they decide what the best plan of action is; without a date, the goal is meaningless.  To just say I will lose weight in 2010 has no goal or time frame to measure your progress.
My number one goal for 2010 was to join Weight Watchers online and to set my goals and plans using their helpful tools.  I have signed up and I will set realistic goals.............and reassess as I go along...........
Oh this was way to much info.  Sorry  smhair
Happy New Year and good luck to all,
