The new year is a great time for setting goals and starting anew. Besides the classic goals for healthy eating and exercising, the new year is also a perfect time for financial goals.
I often get emails and comments from readers who want to get started paying off debt or want to make headway on their savings goals, but don’t know how to get started. Some wonder how to spend less on groceries and household expenses. Others want to know how to effectively create and use a budget.
Between the frugality in my genes and the thriftiness I married into, a lot of what we do to save money comes as second nature to me. If you struggle with pinching pennies or feel overwhelmed with your financial situation, I have just the thing for you!
I’m excited to introduce the upcoming series on Six Figures Under. During the month of January, I want to focus on starting fresh with finances and creating frugal habits. Join me each weekday in January (starting January 5th) for the Frugal Fresh Start Challenge to learn the basics of budgeting, being frugal, and getting your finances in order. Whether you’re just getting started or you need to recommit, it’s a perfect time to revamp your finances and make strides toward your goals.
We will cover lots of different topics throughout the month to help you form new frugal habits, lower your expenses, and get your finances in order. Each day’s post will end with a challenge, so you can apply the day’s principle in a practical and meaningful way.
I hope you’ll join along!
