Ready for 2023
Maiya
What a ride it’s been! 2022 has been full of adventure and trying new things and I’m so excited by all the progress Project Money has given me financially.

Whew, it’s over!
Krystal and Alisa
Whew and wow! This has been quite a challenging and eye-opening process! It has been very hard to do this project as part of a couple when both of us appear to handle finances and money very differently. If I’ve learned one thing it’s that you can start out with very similar goals and desires but unless you are actually working hard towards them each week, they aren’t easy to maintain collectively! While we probably aren’t in last place, we sure aren’t in first either and that's okay.

Finally Financially Free
Megan and Dom
The past six months have been so transformative for us, and it is hard not to get emotional as we write this last blog post. We are finally financially free. Not only in our reduced debt and increased savings, but in our mindset towards finances and the way we approach financial conversations with each other.

Extended Car Warranty, Resource or Rip-off?
Evan and Robin
In the last week we had to take Robin’s car, a 2019 VW Atlas, in for a couple of recall notices we had received. Nothing completely out of the ordinary and wouldn’t have any out-of-pocket costs – so it wasn’t something that we had put much thought or effort into – outside of scheduling the appointment. Unfortunately, what we anticipated being a ~1 hour visit ended up being 5+ hours and spurred a larger discussion.

Home is where the bills get sent
Megan and Dom
And where the heart is, of course…

 

This week has been so trying. We are all recovering (slowly) from the flu that hit us HARD. Dominique and Megan both missed a ton of work and there was no end to unpacking in sight. Having to put unpacking on hold immediately after our move was really hard for us, it also made it really hard to cook at home and save money on take-out. We did not do well with that budget item this week once again, but we have been working on getting unpacked as we feel better.
