TpT Seller Challenge: Week 2

Our challenge this week is to list the BIG goals we have for TpT and why we work so hard to reach them. Honestly, my goals have evolved over time. Originally I wanted to make a few extra bucks to help pay for my daughters' club soccer fees, uniforms, tournaments and gear. Now, I'm dreaming big! Why not??
1. Financial Freedom: I mean, who doesn't want this? It would be so nice to be able to pay my bills and mortgage and have p-l-e-n-t-y of money left over so I wouldn't have to stress about unexpected expenses that inevitably come up. I would also really LOVE to not have to clean my house. Seriously, that is a big one for me. I don't think I would stop working (yet) even if I had this elusive "financial freedom" but it would sure be nice to be able to if I wanted. It would be super cool to have everything paid off too. I'm dreamin' BIG, right?

2. My girls have a little college fund but I would love for them to graduate with as little debt as possible. The oldest heads off to college in August and we just found out that her tuition and room/board went up. Sigh. I would love to help her out now and then so she could start her life without the burden of student loans to pay off. My youngest is planning on med school so I think debt is pretty much guaranteed, but it would be great if she started off with her undergrad covered. 

3. I know I get a retirement (in 14 years) from teaching, but my hubs doesn't have that guarantee. I want him to be able to contribute the max to his 401k so we can make our retirement dreams a reality. 

4. I dream of cruises, beaches and european vacations on a daily basis. My husband and I work extremely hard and vacations are the only way to keep our sanity. My dream is that my whole family can take a cruise together! 

5. I would love to either have the extra money to donate to charities, or the time (by not having to work) to volunteer more than I do currently. If I ever hit the big time, I dream of setting up an after school club for kids at my school to learn to cook, get some exercise, use technology and get help with their homework or reading & math skills. 


  1. I feel like our goals are so similar! Just substitute dance for soccer! Their activities can be so costly, but when it is what they are passionate about we find a way to make it happen for them! Following you now on Bloglovin and heading over to Insta to look for you!

  2. Good luck with your dreams! I agree with you about college funds for my kids. It would be such a big help!!

  3. Loved reading about your dreams. I think I dream of vacations on a daily basis too. It's hard not to think about cruises, island drinks and the ocean. Thanks for sharing! Also, love your blog name-I can totally relate. :o)
