We're 10 days into our 40-day Savvy Savings Challenge in the SavvySugar Community and going strong! The aim is simple: let's help one another make smarter choices and build our piggy banks. I've committed to forgo all unnecessary spending — I'm not driving to work for convenience or clothes shopping — for all of Lent, and I've invited you all to join in the savings group and make your own sacrifices. Turns out, many of you have set a goal to cut back on eating out:
- wazzugal is attempting to only go out to dinner/happy hour once a week.
- coffee82art has made the pledge to give up fast food.
- gidgie has promised to pack her lunch four days a week.
Cheer on the savers in comments and jump on our budget- and mood-boosting effort and cut your most harmful and indulgent habits for the next 40 days! Join the Savvy Savings Challenge and share what you plan, then update the group with your pitfalls and success stories. The community and I will be your personal finance trainers!
