New Year is just around the corner, which for many means new beginnings, new experiences and new goals! Whether you’re continuing goals from this year, creating new ones, setting big goals or small ones HP wants to hear all about them and how you’ll be achieving them.

Here’s what HP Instant Ink have to say: “New Year brings a fresh start, whether you have a health and fitness goal, want to save money or plan more activities as a family, why not start with HP Instant Ink. This smart HP service has your printer detect when your ink begins to run low and then automatically orders you a new HP original ink cartridge which is delivered straight to your door – with free postage to return and recycle the used one. It makes home printing easy and affordable. There are four different HP Instant Ink price plans to choose from with monthly plans ranging from printing 15 pages a month for free, or pay £1.99 for 50 pages, £3.49 for 100 or just £7.99 for 300 a month. Unused pages roll over to the next month and you can change your price plan at any time. All you need is a compatible HP printer to start planning your New Year goals and to print out your memories along the way. Before you run out. We deliver – HP Instant ink.

You can also get £30 cashback when you buy an eligible Envy Photo printer and sign up to HP Instant Ink within 30 days of your purchase. You can find more information here. Offer ends tonight 4/2/19

Will you be printing out your family’s meal planners and fitness charts, or perhaps your DC will have a star chart printed out on the wall to tick off their New Year Bucket List? Perhaps you have personal goals to do more of the things you love or even try new hobbies? What about those areas of your house that are in need of a declutter? Or maybe you’re setting new goals as a family or with you and your partner?

If you need any inspiration on how to achieve your goals, we have created a New Year's Resolution Pinterest Board in collaboration with HP and some of our Mumsnet Influencers. Please click here to have a look smile

Everyone who posts on the thread will be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a £300 voucher of their choice (from a list).

Thanks and good luck with the prize draw

Our resolution is to own our own home in 2019. We are having to print loads of documents for the mortgage process so this is a great idea!

Blazedout Mon 31-Dec-18 14:38:42

My resolution is to read at least 12 paperback books in 2019. I listen to audio books all the time but miss the smell and feel of a real book.

BeeMyBaby Mon 31-Dec-18 15:07:15

I'd definitely like to get a calendar going so that each day I could feel like I actually achieved something rather than the endless stream of simply spending way too long cooking.

3boysandabump Mon 31-Dec-18 15:27:45

Me and my dh have the usual lose weight & stop smoking we do every year.

As a family we are going to do 150 hours outside so I'll create a big wallchart for that and well check off hours as we go.

Ali1cedowntherabbithole Mon 31-Dec-18 16:10:37

My NYR is to be mired mindful of the planet, to buy less and to reuse more.

Which means less printing grin and probably disqualifies me!

m0jit0 Mon 31-Dec-18 16:10:52

My resolution is to save money so a budget planner/ chart of our progress would be ideal

torthecatlady Mon 31-Dec-18 16:14:16

I love spreadsheets. blush
So I will be printing a spreadsheet of jobs to do around the house. Things that have been forgotten about. If I print it out and stick it on the fridge, I'll see it everyday. No excuse then...

silverlace Mon 31-Dec-18 16:23:00

To will try and use less and also waste less. Will try and eat less meat and cook better meals,

alwaysdressedinyellow Mon 31-Dec-18 17:31:37

My New Years resolutions include saving enough to finally pay off our mortgage, to meal plan and have more healthy meals and to enjoy life a bit more!

ginghamstarfish Mon 31-Dec-18 17:50:24

New Year - new me! Planning to print out checklists of daily, weekly, monthly chores and tick them off - rather than the usual haphazard and random tasks. Along with this, my goals are to eat healthier, become stronger and more flexible (and weight loss would be a bonus!)

sharond101 Mon 31-Dec-18 18:05:40

I am aiming to be more carefree and slow own so contrary to many this will involve being less organised, more untidy, less fit and more fat.

sarat1 Mon 31-Dec-18 19:22:44

My goal is getting daddy to settle baby instead of me and my boob!

OneStepMoreFun Mon 31-Dec-18 19:24:39

My resolution is to write a book. I spend my life editing other people's writing. This year I am taking some time out to finish a book that has been scribbled down in parts in notebooks over the last year or so. I have a mentor to kick start me in January and then I'm going to do a bit towards it each day until it's done.

Also the usual lose weight, C25K stuff. But this year I mean business. Bought new trainers and running gear, downloaded the C25K app and booked to run with a friend on NYD, followed by a 6 mile walk with family.

cristinaP Mon 31-Dec-18 19:43:00

My goal is to keep up what i am doing right now, trying not to give a fuck to anyone who think they're right, be a good MUM+WIFE.

Lastly trying my hardest to see the bright side of life without any complain and feel grateful for all God's blessing!

meow1989 Mon 31-Dec-18 19:54:56

Cliche but I want to loose weight. I'm going to walk the 3 mile round trip into town with DS instead of driving and try to eat better.

CopperPan Mon 31-Dec-18 20:16:19

I'm starting an Access course next year so I'm going to have to be super-organised and keep on top of coursework. A lot of it is online so I won't have to print out coursework as such, but I need paper planners to keep myself focused and know what I need to be doing.

PashleyB Mon 31-Dec-18 20:23:43

More fitness - I have been doing some online workouts over November and December and I am actually doing them (unlike the gym) so making that a habit that sticks. More prosaically I will also be taking my lunch into work and use less plastic

synderella Mon 31-Dec-18 21:09:07

To grow my online creative business and perhaps to have a better 'real world' presence. I currently hand print all of my labels and merchandise so a printer would really help me be more creative.

buckley1983 Mon 31-Dec-18 22:19:28

We've set family goals for 2019 - OH & I have resolved to eat less, move more & be more patient with eachother. Our son has vowed to eat less sugar (yes!) & keep his room tidy.
We're creating a chart to print out & tick off each successful day to chart our progress smile

asuwere Mon 31-Dec-18 23:44:05

My goal is to be more patient and also care less about what other people think.

MrsFrTedCrilly Tue 01-Jan-19 00:00:01

I’m aiming not to give headspace to nonsense and not sweat the small stuff...
probably last about an hour

biffyboom Tue 01-Jan-19 00:08:44

Our plan is to get married this year and for dp get the snip grin I'll be surprised we get round to sorting either though hmm

kateandme Tue 01-Jan-19 03:12:18

id like to be helpful to someone or others.in small way be being kind or bigger ways if ican them.
focus on mindfulness techniques so I can calm down and not get anxious over everything or finding new ways of strength to cope with what is clearly not going to be a better years for any of us in many ways and is currently sending me panicky!
spend more time with the people I love.
halt the pressure.

allthingsred Tue 01-Jan-19 06:56:41

My goal is to try to create more memories with my kids.
At the moment it just seems to be work/school, home, dinner, bed
& we don't do anything together anymore.
Would like to do 1 thing a week even if just playing a board game
