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!
