My mom gave me this stack of notes and I needed to come up with a couple of ways to put them to use. One of them I thought of on New Years Eve and I've been meaning to make a guide. A "bucket" jar!

You can decorate your jar with ribbons, stickers, tassels, quotations, or anything else you want. I hung some of my budgies' feathers from the lid. You can do whatever you like. Express yourself!

This colorful, attractive container looks great on any desk or bookshelf. The "bucket" jar has many uses. You could even use the jar to keep track of weekly tasks like homework projects and chores.

I have chosen to use my jar as my New Year's resolutions and also as a bucket list for my life. That means I'm going to go through my goals every year on December 31st.

I'm going to take out all of the goals I have accomplished in the previous year and put them in a separate box or jar, examine all of the goals left in the jar, and add in all of my new dreams.

Hopefully, I will have accomplished all of my short term goals. Wish me luck!
