Want Eat Wear Read

Apparently there is a thing that some parents do around birthdays and the holidays called Want/Need/Wear/Read. I love that idea – the kid gets something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read.

I thought it might be kind of a fun way to set some goals by doing the same each month. I know it’s kind of weird to say it’s a way to set goals, but hear me out:

Want: Ok, this isn’t a goal, but there are somethings that I’d absolutely never buy, because frankly I’m cheap and they seem frivolous.

Eat: I pretty much have everything I could possibly need, but I thought that it might encourage me to get a bit more creative in the kitchen if I set a goal to make a specific dish each month.

Wear: I’m one of those people that wears shirts until they are riddled with holes, boots until the heels are worn down to the nub and won’t replace a winter coat because…well, I hate shopping. I have almost no patience for it and you can almost never find anything online that meets your expectations for a reasonable price.

Read: I love reading, but I tend to prefer to make lists of books I want to read, rather than actually going to the new St. Louis Public Library (conveniently located just 2 blocks away!) to pick them up.

So…here we go. My list for October. Leave your comments or suggestions for next month in the comments!



Want: Home Alone Holiday T, available on Etsy

Eat: Tortellini dish, available at Good Housekeeping

Wear: Military jacket, available at Nasty Gal

Read: The Last Summer of the Camperdowns by Elizabeth Kelly
