2019! Here we go! It's January 3rd and we've all made the commitment to lose weight, eat healthy, go to bed earlier and save money! Right? It's day three and I haven't made a plan for any of it yet. Our last holiday guests, my parents, left this morning. So now, here I go! I woke up early this morning, not because it was a goal, but because my kids had to go back to school. It was a challenge to say the least, after staying up late and sleeping in for two weeks. I did manage to weigh myself and log breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here I go! I'm doing it! The next big goal.... saving money! I achieved that today by going home for lunch! Look at me go!

But let's get real. I'm a busy working mom, with a husband who has a crazy schedule and two grade school kids with crazy schedules. I don't try to do it all, because I can't. Some days I'm a great mom! Other days, I rush off to work and have a great day, only to pick my kids up later and discover my husband let my son go off to school wearing his sister's gray dress as a shirt (true story). And every once in a blue moon, I achieve success in both worlds, on the same day. As a busy and imperfect mom, I know I'm not going to be able to eat at home every night or prepare lunch every day. I'm not always going to be able to keep up with the housework or do repairs on my own. That's why saving money can be so hard.

Luckily, Family Savings Magazine is owned and operated by a working mother and wife (ME). We keep busy families at the top of our mind when we produce each issue. I hope this year, you will add Family Savings Magazine to your "New You"! Save money with us on the nights when cooking is the last thing on your mind! Save money with us, when you don't have the time or the skill set to do a home repair! Save money with us, when you decide to treat the family to a night of fun!

I wish you the best of luck in hitting your 2019 goals.
