START TRACKING YOUR SPEND
Get to know where you spend, how it makes you feel and what really matters when it comes to your money!
Let's stop pretending that being good at money means you need to be good at math. Instead, let's listen to our body and our mind.
Where do I even start? In the past two weeks, I’ve spent all of my free time doing things to attempt to prepare for this moment, and I still don’t have the words. I wrote a journal. It’s being published. I’m a freaking published author of The 100-Day Financial Goal Journal: Build a Plan for Your Financial Future, and you can preorder the book right now.
Finances are way too complicated, outdated, and boring — but they don’t have to be. Unlike the generation before us, homes don’t provide a high return on investment, getting a college degree can cost more than you’ll earn once you graduate and money revolves around every single aspect of our lives even though we wish it didn’t.
It’s impossible to avoid essential expenses, and it’s unfair to starve yourself of the good life — which for most of us is honestly just a $6 latte from the cafe down the street. So, let’s slow things down. Let’s focus on one step at a time. After all, good habits of any kind don’t form overnight, and it might take a little bit longer for good money habits to take reign.
This 100-day financial goal journal is for anyone who is sick of feeling behind when it comes to their money situation. Rather than pick up the typical personal finance book about how to get wealthy as an entrepreneur, how to retire early or how to pay off your debt by living life bare bones, this modern diary can get you on the right track with your financial situation, without having to skip the fun parts of what money is really for: to be enjoyed.
The 100-Day Financial Goal Journal: Build a Plan for Your Financial Future is a less aggressive look at your finances, with no incomprehensible jargon or substantial numbers. This journal will take the overwhelming topic of money and turn it into a fun challenge.
Do you earn an income? This journal is great for you.
Do you like to save money? This journal is great for you.
Do you want to save more money? This journal is great for you.
Do you want to save more money but aren’t sure where to start? This journal is great for you.
Do you want to accomplish a short-term financial goal? This journal is great for you.
In other words, if you care about your money or want to care more about your money, I highly recommend this journal. Even though this is v. biased and I totally shouldn’t tell you what to do.
Looking to start an emergency fund? Save for a big purchase? Or make a dent in credit card or student loan debt? Let this journal be your guide. It features prompts that will help you reach your biggest personal finance-related goal, plus daily pages for recording your expenses, reflecting on your everyday spending and saving decisions, and tracking your progress. A detailed introduction with fun, user-friendly graphics and charts explain how to set an attainable financial target that suits your lifestyle and use the journal effectively. The attractive package includes a ribbon marker, lay-flat binding, and pocket on the inside back cover for collecting receipts, bills, and bank statements.
This journal can provide a quick introduction to personal finance, and a deep dive into how you value your money and what you want to achieve in your financial life. In 100 days, you will learn how to budget, set goals, hold yourself accountable, and make the most of your money.
That’s a great question. In fact, I ask myself that same question every single day. I was contacted by Sterling Publishing to see if I would be interested in this project, had a mini panic attack, agreed to jump on board the project. That’s it.
From there, I did many many evenings and weekends worth of researching, writing and editing, and now we’re here. I feel very fortunate to have been afforded the privilege of publishing my first book, a dream I’ve had since I can remember.
The official launch date of The 100-Day Financial Goal Journal: Build a Plan for Your Financial Future is April 7, 2020. However, the book is available for preorder right now at Barnes & Noble, Amazon (US), Amazon (Canada) and IndieBound.
If you are interested in preordering, please send me confirmation of your receipt to hello[at]mixedupmoney.com, and I’ll send you a personalized thank you card and surprise via snail mail because that’s way more fun than email.
Still, to this day, I cannot believe how many amazing people I’ve met in this online community we’ve built together. The personal finance bloggers I know are the most supportive and empowering friends I have, and the readers who share, like and reply to my content are so incredibly precious. We may be a small crew, but you guys always manage to make me feel inspired to keep growing.
So, thank you. So much. For always supporting me. For still reading and sharing my content. For making talking about money way more fun and way less stressful. You’re my favourites!
