Join the 30 day money challenge designed to be finished! By keeping this challenge fun and building accountability, we’ll kick your 2019 off to its best start. Best of all, it’s free!
A couple of Januarys ago, my Hubby and I stared at a list of things we wanted to do with our lives. Changes we wanted to make to our home. Fun trips we wanted to take with our family. Dream dates we’d love to go on.
And it was a shock to our plan when we realized that debt was keeping us from doing any of those things.
You probably have dreams similar to ours. But something is holding you back. Whether it’s too many bills, not enough savings, or the weight of money mistakes you feel like you’ll never overcome…it can make you feel hopeless.
We made a plan that turned around everything on that day in January. And those changes actually stuck!
You might be picturing Eeyore right now, but forget about that mindset! We actually feel more freedom than ever before.
In fact, this year we had a well cushioned Christmas savings account that made the holidays easier than ever. And thanks to no credit card bills in January, we’ll continue to put ourselves ahead year after year.
And I want you to feel the same way!
The 30 Day Money Challenge 2019
Last year, I built a 30 day challenge that was a little complicated. I spent the entire year thinking about how to create a more effective challenge that people would stick with. What makes a challenge fun?
- Levels for people at the beginning, intermediate, or advanced level
- Most of all, results
The goal of this 30 day challenge is to kick start your emergency fund. If you already have a stocked emergency fund, let’s build savings for next Christmas or a sweet family vacation.
The main goal is to have $1,000 in your account (or a jar) by the end of 2019.
How far you get towards that goal depends on you. Adjust this challenge to meet your own needs. For some who have never really saved money, even a small start will be awesome. For frugal superheroes, there will be opportunities to challenge yourself more than ever.
Who Is This Challenge For?
People who have…
- never saved money before.
- built a savings account for a while, but quit.
- some savings, but feel they could do better.
- fallen off the frugal wagon and want to get back into better habits.
Each week we’ll focus on a different habit. You choose whether to follow the beginner, intermediate, or advanced path. Challenge yourself on weeks that are in your wheelhouse. Start smaller on weeks that you are less familiar with.
What Will You Get?
You’ll start the new year with a habit that sticks. You’ll learn how saving money doesn’t have to be oppressive. And you’ll have a good start to your emergency fund…or kick off your savings for another goal!
Here’s What To Do
1. Sign up for the challenge here. You’ll get emails (only a couple per week!) and access to the Facebook group with conversation and encouragement.
2. While you wait for January 1st to arrive, print out this money saving chart and hang it some place visible. We’re going to cross off as many of these boxes in one month as we can. After that, you’ll decide whether to continue to push yourself to meet the goal faster, or you can relax back to saving one box per week.
3. Check your email for access to the Facebook support group and more information. (If you don’t see it, check your “other” folders or spam.)
4. If you’d like some inspiration while you wait, be sure to get your copy of 500 Ways to Save Money: Build a Cash Jackpot for the Best Things In Life. You’ll find a ton of ideas for saving money that you can use right away!
You deserve a better life of less stress! This 30 day money challenge will get you there.
Let’s kick off a year of less stress and build up your savings account. I can’t wait to get started! See you January 1st.
