Next week we are going to be starting a weekly series for the month of February, talking money and ways to save it. Life with a family can get expensive from everyday expenses to the things we want more than need. Often people find themselves having just enough in the budget to get by and maybe turning to credit for a little boost in buying. Credit ends up accumulating because unless the budget changes for the better, credit repayment isn't always there and off roll the problems with late payments or worse, ending up at the credit bureau with bad credit ratings. Sound familiar? I'm sure many, many people can relate to that example. It's one big vicious cycle if you don't know how to properly budget your money. Let's all take a challenge to make a change and learn how to use our money for the better and save at the same time. 

We are going to start the year off right by SMART spending and saving more. This February, P&G has challenged P&GMom bloggers with the Family Financial Challenge – a month long challenge inspired by personal finance expert Gail Vaz-Oxlade.

I have been a fan of Gail for the longest time, I love watching “Till Debt Do Us Part” and “Princess”. Her books are insightful and are full of great tips and advice. I also had the opportunity to hear her speak on a panel in 2011 and got to meet her briefly afterward, she is just great! You can learn so much from Gail’s simple yet professional tips on money and life management. I am super excited to have the chance to take this challenge for the month of February!

How it works:

Each week we are given a challenge to share ways our family saves money and makes smart financial decisions using Gail Vaz-Oxlade's tips, tricks and methods. I will be sharing blog posts, Instagram photos, tweets and more – learning new ways to manage and save our money featuring tips and tricks from Gail and great P&G products! 

Categories we will be looking at over the next four weeks will help all of us learn a new thing or two about family budgets and personal spending.

Week1: Cash, Cash, Cash

Week 2: Food

Week 3: Family Fun

Week 4: Clothes

Saving money isn’t rocket science; it’s about discipline and knowing how to make your money work for you.

Stay tuned via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media networks using hashtag #SavingMadeSimple for tips, tricks and pics as we embark on our journey to better savings!
