After #NOSpenduary, I wanted to have another challenge to keep myself motivated with frugal living, so I got to thinking.....How I could I keep myself and all of you lovelies on board with this frugal living stuff? I loved having a goal for the month in January and you all seemed to as well (thanks for all the shout outs on social media last month. I loved seeing everything you were doing to save!)
I started thinking about my own frugal journey and how I got to where I am today. I remember all the steps I took to get our family out of debt and into a frugal mind set....they were baby steps. I would pick one thing to work on, make it a habbit, and then add something else on to my plate. Over time I found I was able to do so much more than I ever thought possible. Over this next year, I am going to pick challenges each month that we can all focus on. Whether you are new to budgeting or are a saving diva, we can all use these challenges to refocus and make goals for our families. This year is dedicated to us all being able to become financially independent and self-reliant. I want to help you all get your budget in the black and keep it there!
This month we will be focusing on meal time. Whether your family is together for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, we need to pick a time each day to be able to come together as a family. When families share meals together, everyone tends to be happier and healthier. When we eat at home, we also tend to leave more dollars in our checking account...Can we say "SCORE?!"
This month I will be sharing recipes, videos, tips, tricks, and more on how your family can take back meal time. I know that we can all do this, if we continue to inspire and encourage one another. I loved all the inspiration I received from you guys, as you shared all the amazing things you did during the #NOSpenduary Challenge. I hope you will continue that momentum as we head into February. Use the #takebackmealtime, as you share how you are sitting down as a brood and unplugging from distractions.
Let's celebrate meal time this month. Let's share with our loved ones and listen to all they have to say. Dinnertime conversations strengthen a family and give us opportunities to build relationships with one another.
We can do this together!! Who's in?
