It’s a New Year, filled with opportunity and excitement to come. It’s also been a strange beginning, with the loss of one of my idols – David Bowie – and other great actors and musicians. With other not so wonderful things happening behind the scenes in our lives right now, I’ve chosen to look ahead to what the possibilities are. And a big part of that is this blog which will have a tighter focus this year. When the Netflix Stream Team information came for this month, I was so excited as it focusses on a New Year, New View. Just what I was thinking! And there are some great movies to share to keep you motivated. Being part of the Netflix Stream Team this year is going to be so much fun!
On Savvy Suburban Mama this New Year I’ll be focusing on:
- Family and Family Activities – thrifty fun to get together and to get more active
- Decluttering – I’m tired of doing this over and over so I have a new plan to share
- Organizing – putting the things that I keep away so they are accessible and pleasing to look at
- Thrifty Thoughts – we have a year of Not Buying New ahead of us. More on this to come!
- DIY – because not buying new might involve a little fun and easy DIY, which I love.
Imagine the possibilities! It’s a New Year – New View!
The thing about goals or resolutions is that we all tend to lose steam part way through. What we need when that happens is a boost – something to inspire us. I have injuries that make it difficult to do the things I love to do. I’m right handed and my right hand and wrist just can’t follow through for me. I watched Soul Surfer some time ago and this is one that I think I’ll watch again on Netflix. If she could overcome her obstacles, surely I can overcome mine.
With movies like Patch Adams, Planet Earth (series), My Lucky Elephant and McFarland, Netflix has an array of great inspiration for all different types of New Year’s resolutions. If you need a break from the serious – hit the kid’s section on Netflix and watch some Scooby-Do or How to Train Your Dragon: Race to the Edge. (I watch these with my boys and they suck me right in every time!)
I’d love to help you with your movie break with a free 6 month subscription to Netflix Canada. (and think about it – Netflix is clutter free – no dvds to store!) All you have to do is leave a comment and enter through the rafflecopter form below. Available to Canadian Residents only, excluding Quebec. There are also lots of other ways on the form that you can enter. Good Luck!
