Of Baby Steps and Stepping Stones

Becoming frugal involves a lot of behavioral modification. The changes you’ll need to start implementing can quickly become overwhelming. Start with baby steps to create small changes that will last and then create more meaningful goals that will deeply impact the way you live.

We’ve been taking baby steps over the last several years and now we’re getting in deep. We’re not just talking about cutting down on paper products, harmful cleaning supplies, and trash. The changes we’ll be making over the next couple of years will require us to let go of the Standard American Diet and modern conveniences. We’ll also have to learn new skills and make a true commitment to our new lifestyle. I’m 100% committed but my husband needs some convincing.

To make our transitions easier we’ll be breaking these changes into manageable goals that will allow us adequate time to make behavioral changes that will sticks.  My plan is to set a new goal each month with an idea in mind of how we’ll implement it. Over the year I may find other things take priority and switch the goal out to better meet our needs. The important part is that I have a plan to help implement the changes we want to see over the long haul. I’ll be able to see that change is actually occurring and this will help me to assess what steps to take next.
