Last year this time I did a challenge where I shared with you all a daily tip I was trying to apply in my life to improve my financial wellbeing.
February tends to be the month for me I tend to really get back on track with my finances.
Because of that, I have decided to call it Financial Fitness February and I will once again be sharing with you the healthy financial steps I am taking.
This time however, I will be sharing just the things I did each day that have an impact on my finances in some way or another.
I truly believe the path to financial fitness is a step by step process and it is important to celebrate the wins no matter how small.
So as I share each day I would also love to hear from you what you are doing to better your financial future.
It could be anything from paying down debt to picking up a penny off the ground.
Together, we can take small steps and challenge each other to take bigger ones tomorrow!
DAY 1 WIN:
Today my wife and I went to buy a cookware set. (Since we didn't have any after having got rid of most of our stuff to travel all 50 States)
We wanted something that would last, so we didn't go for the cheapest one. I did however go prepared with coupons and a discount (at Kohls) and was able to save $30 off the original price, plus got an additional $10 Kohls Cash for a future purchase.
FUN FACT: Did you know, if you save just $28 dollars a day in a bank account, you will have over 10K after one year!
LESSON FROM TODAY: Financial fitness doesn't mean you never spend money. But it does require you to become smart about how you spend and take advantage of any opportunity to save on major purchases.
That's all I got for day one, what is a recent financial win you have accomplished?
