Mitch Mission Update W.E. 11/7/2015

I gave myself 5 missions this past Sunday to complete over the week. A green Mission means it was completed, a yellow Mission means it was semi/mostly completed, and a red Mission means it was not completed.

60% of my Missions were completed this past week.

Minimalism -  Take one "box" of clothes to Goodwill/Salvation Army/equivalent donation store. I put box in quotes because a box isn't holding me to a certain quantity, just that I should donate something.

  • I took 6 T-Shirts that I don't wear anymore to a local thrift store. 

Investing - Sell all of the stocks that recently had or will have ex-dividend dates this week.

  • I sold two stocks last week, GE and UL, but not AAPL, INTC, F, or OHI. You can't really control what the market is going to do, and the objective of these Missions is to work towards something to get better/improve. I am going to give myself a completion for this, and will think about how I want to do investing Missions going forward.

Technology - Analyze phone bill for upcoming $20/increase due to unlimited data line. Look at options for shared data package. This is a continuation from last week.

  • Nope. 

Conservation - Order reusable produce bags.

  • I wanted to get this one done, but I did not. I'm stuck on where to order these from.

Health - Don't drink any pop (unless I need a caffeine boost while driving). I will give myself an allowance of one pop if I'm at an event or get-together, and I forget I'm not drinking pop and have an "Oh crap" moment.

    • I did not drink any pop throughout the week. It got difficult a few times, but I made it through. There were not any "Oh crap" moments either. 


New Missions for W.E. 11/14/2015

Minimalism - Have 50 or fewer e-mails in the primary inbox of my e-mail account. I am currently sitting at over 400 e-mails in my primary inbox.

Investing - Compare the $ cost of making my own tacos vs. eating at Chipotle. 

Technology - Take a break from Snapchat until next Sunday.

Conservation - Find out where my town's recycling center is. 

Health - Eat 1 orange every day. 


Signed,

Mitch
