  • Financial Fitness: Track Spending Challenge (page 18 in the Wellness Champion playbook)

    Aim: Increase awareness of spending, which is likely to lead to new financial choices.

    The first step to managing your money is to track your spending. Luke 14:28 says, “For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?” Doing this can help you learn how much of your money is going toward essentials and non-essentials.

    How to: Track your spending this month by keeping a running total of your spending in every category (e.g., household expenses, insurance, car payments, groceries, etc.), especially those you have some control over.

    Helping hand: You can use an app or a spreadsheet to help track your monthly spending to decide if you need to make some changes.
