1) Save less. I increased my discretionary spending by $40/month for 2012 and now pay for the convenience of having my shirts pressed. At approximately 12 minutes per shirt, I'm saving around 45 minutes a week to hang out with the gf, cook, clean, etc. I've also vowed to work fewer weekends, and to make a conscientious effort to live a bit more.
2) Trip to Paris. The exchange rate is almost 10% better than my last trip to Lisbon in Spring 2011.
3) Starting running/light workout once again. I lost 5-6# last year after I stopped running.
