The 34 Day Reset!!
Happy New Year, everyone! 🎉
With 2020 officially in our rearview mirror (finally!), we’re kicking off 2021 with a brand new challenge for your budget! I don’t know about anyone else, but I could use a reset from 2020 in general.
The rules are simple:
Track all your spending. Do it with paper, do it with YNAB, we’re not picky.
Only buy essentials. Good news, you get to decide what essential means.
No eating out. That’s painful, I know, but there’s room for exceptions!
After 34 days of following these rules, you’ll have a nice little nest egg! What you do with this money is up to you - will you pay off debt? Will you save it for a rainy day? Will you buy that fire pit your backyard has always needed? You decide!
Get started by signing up for the challenge on our website. We’ll send you the 34-Day Reset workbook to use during the challenge, and we’ll be here to cheer each other on all the way through!
If you’re joining in, use this thread to tell us the rules and exceptions you’ve set for your Reset and what you’re aiming to do with the extra money! We’ll be around for the entire 34 days for accountability 😀
Starting the 34 day challenge (June1)! Woo hoo! Savings goal is $1000. Savings to be used for replenishing "Gifts" Category in YNAB (used heavily for college graduation)!
No wine (no exceptions), no clothes (exception Goodwill, but only 1 in and 1 out rule), no randomly going to nursery for $100 worth of plants (no exceptions, will only use plants given to me by friends and family), and no Amazon purchases (exception wax for candle-making business).
Will also try to sell (or donate) unwanted items and add to the total saved.
