It is day #14 of our Be Intentional Challenges!
As a reminder, the 30 Be Intentional challenges this month are designed to get you on the right foot, the right track and give you energy, efficiency and organization which will propel you into a life that is able to develop an overall financially smart, happy and frugal home. We are going to have different themes each month this year (and we have very exciting stuff planned) and this month is your foundation!
We encourage couples and families to do these challenges together so the whole house can function well!
As the 30 days go along, we will be focusing on 5 areas for the Be Intentional Month:
Here’s the first 13 challenges in case you missed them and want to get your life on the right track:
- Set and Be Strict About Bedtime
- Work Towards Waking Up At The Same Time Everyday
- Making Your Bed Everyday
- Get Dressed To Shoes Everyday
- Hydrate Yourself

- Have A Family Meeting To Review, Discuss and Figure Out How To Solve Obstacles Preventing You From Doing Challenges #1-#10. Plus read about the results of our family meeting and our solutions so far HERE.
- Develop a Nighttime Routine
- Write Out Daily Schedule
We want to now introduce the first budgeting/financial challenge this month so far. This is a overall view of the family’s goals with finances for the year and quick goal setting for the future. We will be diving deeper, but this creates a starting point to work from.
With that, this is where the next challenge comes in!
Be Intentional Challenge #14:
Complete the Financial Summary Questionnaire
This is one that we strongly encourage the whole family to do together, but especially husband and wife. This should be a joint effort so that the budget, goals and ideas can be agreed and met upon together. It should take you about 20 minutes to complete the form and then you will have a summary of what 2013 may look like!
