The Forget The Joneses Project

Thanks to commenter Steph O, I am participating in the Mommysavers' "Forget The Joneses Project".

Mommysavers is an on line forum. Their website states:

" helps parents make the most of their time and money. We want to give you the tools to live a rich, fulfilled life while on a budget or living on one income. We truly can help you live "more richly" for less!"

The "Forget The Joneses Project" is explained as:

"Each year at Mommysavers we hear from a lot of you who resolve to get out of debt, break the paycheck to paycheck cycle or save more money. We want to help all of you. However, cutting up the credit cards is just the first step in achieving true financial fitness. You also need to change the way you look at money and how you relate to it. You need to redefine your relationship with material possessions, see just how your self-worth may be connected to your net worth and really analyze how you’re using your other greatest resource, your time. It's all about being mindful with your spending and putting your money where your priorities, dreams, and values are. In this year-long project, you’ll learn what you need to know to improve your finances and your life all at the same time. Think of it as a "best you" with a financial twist."

I will list the steps of the project tomorrow. If you want to check it out yourself, click here.
