Welcome to weekend #SMCmoneytribe! This week I crossed off $20.00 on the She Makes Cents BINGO Money Challenge. At the end of next month, I will take the money saved between January and April to make a lump sum payment on my Navient student loan principal. My goal is to deplete my money challenge savings every four months to get my snowball moving a little faster.

Hello #SMCmoneytribe! Can you believe that we just finished the second month of the she makes cents 52 Week BINGO Money Challenge? I sure can’t. As we approach a new month I can’t help by wonder, how many of you are still going strong on the challenge? According to Business Insider, 80% of people fail their New Year Resolutions by February. It is easy to have a laser focus on your money, career, and lifestyle goals when a clear transition is before you. Think about all of the people who vow to do better in the new year, who will start clean eating on Monday (aka the start of the new week), and who pledge to start saving more once they earn their next paycheck. Anybody recognize themselves in the statements above?… as I raise my own hand. The thing about all of those examples is that is pushes off you goals to another day; therefore, delaying your ultimate reward- a goal accomplished. Last Friday marked the end of month 2 for the she makes cents 52 Week BINGO Money Challenge and the best thing about our money challenge is that you can easily catch up if you have fallen behind or you start over. The greatest thing about this challenge is that as long as you don’t stop, you will win at your financial goals.
Below is the financial breakdown for the month of February. As you can see, I crossed off lower numbers than the previous month. I saved an extra $41.00 this month putting me at a YTD of $149.00. I am really looking forward to March. Hopefully, I will cross off my first bonus box of the year.
How Are You Doing on the Money Challenge? I’d love to hear from you!
Hello #SMCmoneytribe and welcome to the weekend! We are a month into the challenge with almost 50% more participants than the previous year. Great job everyonet ladies!!! That says to me, they there are people out there making smarter money moves in 2017. What made this year different for me was including the Mr. so we can double the money from this challenge. Full disclosure…. the Mr. decided it was easier for him to remember if he just set a fixed amount of $50.00 per week to the challenge. It makes it easier for him and I like it because even if I cross off a lower amount, I have the $50.00 to add to it.
Show Me the Money!!!
Week one was all about learning how to win at the She Makes Cents BINGO Money Challenge. For week two, the focus was inspiring you to stay motivated toward your savings goals. It is easy to keep your eyes on the prize in the beginning of the year, also know as Resolutions Season, but getting through 52 weeks is only hard if you lose motivation. Week three, the country paused to witness the transition of presidential power and we did too. Before I knew it, we successfully completed month one of the money challenge. Below is the financial breakdown for the month of January.
