Lindsay Lohan — I've Shot Down BIG New Year's Eve Paydays

Lindsay Lohan partying
Lindsay Lohan is adamant … there”s no way in hell she”s gonna blow the progress she”s made with her judge just to count backwards from ten.

Sources close to the actress tell … she”s gotten a bunch of offers to host various ragers on NYE … but she”s turned down every last one.
We”re told Lindsay is desperately trying to change her party girl image … and she feels staying out of the NYE madness is a major step in the right direction.

Lohan”s decision is a costly one — some stars have raked in 6-figure checks for partying on New Year”s Eve.  But we”re told Lindsay — who received high marks from her just earlier this month — doesn”t think a check would be worth it.

Lindsay plans to ring in 2012 with a few close friends at her home … although she may go out to dinner before the final countdown.

Should old acquaintance be forgot …
