Enter the March #GetButtonedUp Challenge!

It’s time to get your finances (and some of your stuff) buttoned up!

Good luck and lots of green; that’s what March is all about. We’d love for you to have lots of luck at maximizing your personal green, so that’s the main thrust of the challenge this month. But we know – both from personal experience AND from just being out in the world – that most people want to bury their heads in the sand when it comes to financial organization (hello – two-thirds of Americans don’t have a budget). So we’ve also lightened the challenge up with some general decluttering exercises too.

By the end of this challenge, you will:

  1. Have taken over 17 baby steps to get your finances organized…painlessly
  2. Impress yourself (and family members/friends) with your MacGuyver-like abilities in the kitchen.
  3. Detox your Tupperware drawers.
  4. Make significant tax-prep progress well in advance of April 15th.
  5. And much, much more!

    How the March #GetButtonedUp Challenge Will Work

    Each day during the month of March we have a specific organizational task for you to complete. Download the March calendar by clicking on the link below.
