Most of you are already convinced that small expenses add up fast. But admit it, you could do better living this lesson out in your life (I’m guilty!). I get lazy and stop caring about how I spend my money at least once a month. I need reminders and I need to take action to get back on track.
So let’s put this idea to the test and see what results we can come up with.
Your challenge this week: Don’t eat out (or drink out) until the weekend!
Take a moment to think through your weekly routine and where you are currently buying food/drinks. Now work out a game plan to curb any eating out this week and see if you can make it until Friday. If you can, we’ll allow you to treat yourself over the weekend
Here are some ideas to get you going:
Instead of going out for drinks, invite your friends over for a potluck/BYOB.
Instead of $12/day for lunch, brown bag it!
Instead of $4/day for coffee, brew it at home.
Instead of delivery, put a pizza in the oven.
Tell us how it goes and what tips you have for accomplishing a challenge like this one!
Hopefully this challenge will help create habits that will carry over beyond just this week.
