Welcome to Week 2!

You’ve made it through an entire week of the Savings Challenge. Give yourself a pat on the back. Get ready for a full week of activities that will help you gain control of your money.


Your mission is to calculate how much you spend daily on things that are non-essential (starting TODAY). After completing this task, you’ll see just how much money you can save when you stop making small non-essential purchases here and there.

Trust me: if you want to see your savings account grow, you must get a handle on your spending.


Once you’ve calculated what you’ve saved by not spending money throughout the day, you’re going to take this task one step further.


Remember the Money Bucket we created last week on Day 3? Transfer the money that you save today into your Money Bucket, no matter how small. Then commit to having at least one “essential spending only” day per week and you’ll begin to see your Money Bucket grow before your eyes. Ready, set, go!


I’m very excited to hear how much you were able to save today!

Make sure to contact your accountability partner(s) early today. Give each other a pep-talk about only spending money on essentials today. Remind each other to bring coffee and lunch from home today, instead of buying those things while at work. At the end of the day, check in again. How much did you both save? Encourage each other to transfer that money to your Money Buckets.


Don’t forget to check into the Savings Challenge Private Community to get connected with other students working through this task. At the end of your essential-only spending day, go share how much you transferred to your Money Bucket.
