Day 1: Introducing 31 Days to Financial Freedom!

Happy Monday my friends! I am joining up with The Nester on her 31 Day series, a month-long series devoted to one topic for each day in October. I find it a little ironic that I wrote a post on not being so busy and then BAM! commit to a 31 day posting series. Oh but it is going to be so much fun! And I’ve already written most of the content, so no fear my friends. This is a good kind of busy I’m ready for. :)

I am very happy to introduce…

What Does it Meant to be “Financial Free”? 
That’s the question I’m hoping to answer in these next 30 days. I look around and see so many people slaves to their money. Bonded by what it can buy, what it takes to earn it, and how it dictates our every day decisions. I am going to spend this month sharing a few ways to take control of your money so that it works for you — not the other way around.

I know what you’re thinking — 31 days on personal finance? Could she have picked a more boring topic? 

And you’re partly right — talking about money is taboo and awkward and possibly the driest topic out there. But I will do my best to make it interest. :) I’ll be sharing success stories of people getting out of debt, tips on creating a budget that actually works, and how you can still have a pretty house, beautiful wardrobe and healthy pantry without breaking the bank.

Here’s what you can expect from this ol’ blog in the next 31 days:

Week 1: Goals!

Week 2: Budgets!

Week 3: Debt!

Week 4: Saving!

Week 5: Giving!

My hope is that by the end of this month you’ll be just as excited about finances as I am, and just in time to jump start your Christmas shopping!

Today’s Question: When was the last time you checked your bank account?

  • I check my bank account everyday! It’s almost unhealthy haha

  • Yeah, I check it a few times a week! I always check it more around paydays and after really expensive weekends just to be sure everything posted correctly.

  • Trisha Sue

    Though
    this topic is quite a taboo already, I have to admit this is what most of us
    need to talk about. How to manage our
    finances especially if it is too limited.

    I check mine a few times a week. It is always a good idea to know where you stand, and to check on what’s going in and out (especially in case there are fraudulent charges – I caught some on our account recently!).
