Getting To The Money

Hey Y’all Hey! Kijan ou Ye!

Is it just me or is January moving a little faster than normal??

In my first post of the year (New Decade|New Year|#2020 Vision) I stated that I wanted to start a money savings challenge and the challenge I choose was the 52-week savings. Well I’m pleased to say that I indeed started the challenge. Now we all know starting something is easy but the follow through and staying focused is the difficult part. So, to hold myself accountable I will be posting on my Instagram story every Monday with an update and I encourage you all to join me in this challenge.

The older I get the more I realize that having a REAL savings account is important. Having a savings account can make or break you when unexpected things happen in your life. Financial stability is a goal of mine and starting this year with this challenge is a push in the right direction.

There are several money saving challenges out there (just google them) but I choose to do the 52-week challenge because it was the best challenge that suited my lifestyle and at the end of the year, I will have almost $1,400!

There are also plenty of saving apps that I have come across that will help me in starting my nest egg. The apps that I’m using are:

  • Ally
  • Acorns
  • Digit
  • Qapital

I’m excited to start this journey.

Are you good at saving money? What are you doing this year to add to your nest egg?
