Just the other day my sister and I were talking about things to do for summer. With having three kids, and not a ton of money I wanted a fun way to start saving money. There are plenty of ways to do it, cutting down on expensive luxuries is one step, so is sticking to a budget. We probably know those two money-saving tips quite well.
There are people who save money by investing leftover money at the end of the month into Scalable Capital and other ventures like that. That’s probably the first I ever heard of saving money that way. Saving money by earning money? Hey as long as it works. It does require some financial skills though, so it’s probably not a good way to save for complete beginners.
But there are still plenty of things complete beginners can get into. Some bargain hunters shop very strategically in that they only buy non-essentials once a month and when they can apply a special offer to it (you can see it here). Buying second-hand and buying things to last are other good ways to shave off a good amount of money you would have otherwise spent. The more I thought about it the more I realized there are lots of interesting and creative ways to lower my expenses and save up for something nice for the kids.
That’s when the Save Money Challenge came to mind. We just finished a 12-week fitness challenge (one I didn’t do too good at) but one that did get me motivated to get back into the gym. If a challenge can get me into the gym again why couldn’t it get me to save a little money?
That’s why I’m here. I’ve put all the planning into action and I’m ready to get more people to join the challenge with me.
Do you want to save a little more money? Do you love a good challenge? What about both? Both is good, right?
If so then please sign up. The first challenge starts on Monday, April 17-24 and we will be starting a new challenge every week. So it’s never too late to start.
