Henry: Be It Resolved …

The resolutions I set this year are much more attainable and, at least in my opinion, better for me in the long run. First, I'm going to make a conscious effort to eliminate much of my outstanding debt in the coming year. When I sat down and calculated it out, I realized I'd have a lot more change in my pocket if I wasn't making little payments to various credit cards and store accounts. I know I won't be able to kick all my debt to the curb (such as my house or cars) but if I dig in and try, I know that I'll be in much better shape come this time next year. Second, along with killing my debt, I'm trying my best to declutter my life of unnecessary stuff. I wrote last time about my frustration with the modern Christmas holiday and all the useless crap to buy that is thrown at us each December. Well, upon looking at my house I'm about two dead cats away from being an entry-level hoarder/Henry Johnston, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.

Question: Can you remember a time that you fulfilled a New Year's resolution? What was it?
