i resolve to


New Years Resolutions: We’ve all made them. And honestly, we’ve all broken them. According to Wikipedia, “A New Year's resolution is a tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere…in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning from New Year's Day.”

This year, you’re in luck. Not only are we listing the Top Five Resolutions, we’re giving you easy tips on how to keep them!

Statistic Brain rated the Top New Years Resolutions:

  1. Lose Weight
  2. Getting Organized
  3. Spend Less, Save More
  4. Enjoy Life to the Fullest
  5. Staying Fit and Healthy

Here are some great ways for you to keep each one of these all-important resolutions:

Number One: Lose Weight

If you’re going to lose weight, part of the process is just getting moving, along with watching your caloric intake. Find all your workout gear for much, much less…and just like that, we’ve got you covered on Resolutions 1, 3, 4, and 5! Sweet!

Number Two: Getting Organized

Yes, you can start this year with a clean(er) slate, but organization is key. You can start by taking our 7-Day Clutter Cleanup Challenge! If that’s not your style, tackle just one room at time, and work on your living space a little bit throughout the year. Start with your closet or kitchen, or perhaps your garage, and feel good about your progress. Cross off Resolution Number Two!

Number Three: Spend Less, Save More

Every time you walk into one of our Goodwill Central Texas stores, you are spending less money. The best part of fulfilling this resolution is that while you’re saving money on your shopping, you’re transforming someone’s life. That should make you feel good all year long.

Number Four: Enjoy Life to Its Fullest

This one is a little bit different. “Enjoy” can mean many things to many people. Is it spending more time with the people you love? Is it finally taking that dream vacation? What makes you feel fulfilled? We have many opportunities at Goodwill where you can contribute in a positive way to a healthy and prosperous Central Texas!

Number Five: Staying Fit and Healthy

We can help you with the equipment for getting fit, but it’s up to you to work on developing good habits to stay fit and healthy. Here’s a little tip: when you come to shop at any of our Goodwill locations, park a little farther away and use the walk for exercise! The more you shop, the more fit you’ll become!

No matter what you choose as your New Years Resolution, here’s to a Happy and Prosperous New Year for us all!
