For 31 Days in May 2018, my challenge will be to find $1000. You can join the challenge too on my closed Facebook group: Family Budgeters Unite!
On day 1 of 31 Days to Find $1000, our mission is to make the month a “Needs Only” Month. For 31 days, we will ask ourselves before each purchase, “is this a WANT or a NEED?” and “Can I get through my day/week/month/ life without this purchase?”
For one month we’re going to set aside our impulses and focus on our goal to find $1000.
I’m not telling you that you can’t spend ANY money this month; I’m just suggesting that we spend only on our needs and leave our wants for another time–like when you don’t need 4 new tires or have a high credit card bill.
This will be a daily act of discipline for all of us. I can’t tell you what your needs or wants are, only you can decide that, but we can and we will get through this month–together. At the end of each day, update your goal/tally sheet posted on your fridge with any unspent money that will be going towards your $1000.
Our motto with this challenge, “The Goal is BIGGER Than the Stuff.”
Are you joining me in finding $1000 in October? Do you think you can handle a “Needs Only” month? Let us know in the comments.
