Yep, you read it right. In fact, I don't want you to set any New Year's Resolutions. Depending on the statistic, 80-91% of people won't achieve those goals. They're usually unrealistic and too drastic. Think crash diets, quitting smoking cold turkey, plans to go to the gym every day, or never spending money unnecessarily.
Does this mean nothing should change in your life? Not at all! First off, take away the pressure of January 1st. You can choose to start a new endeavor any day of the year and it's just as worthy. Aim to set realistic, achievable goals with your money. Start small and build on once you've reached those smaller goals.
Tackling the behaviors behind how we spend money is not a simple fix. So I recommend taking on one issue at a time. Not sure where to start? I'll be launching my Grocery Budget Challenge on January 17th. Why such a weird day? Statistically, that's the day most people give up on their resolutions. That's the time to re-evaluate your goals for 2023 and get serious about the ones that stuck. Plus, you may have some sticker shock from the protein powder, supplements and kale you stocked up on in these first weeks of January.
The printable includes sheets for tracking expenses, inventory the food you already have, and planning meals ahead of time. Does this sound like an area you're struggling with? You can purchase the challenge now in my shop, but email subscribers get it for free! Make sure you're signed up if you're interested.
