WHERE TO GRAB YOUR FOCUSED CALENDAR AND CHALLENGES
UPDATE: The physical calendars have sold out, but you can still buy a PDF version from The Page Company to print and use!
Last year we stepped up our game and made a BIG surprise for you… We took our little monthly calendar and turned it into a full-fledged wall calendar that you can purchase and hang on your wall! And guess what? We did it again!! We've put our blood, sweat, and tears into this small project because we want to help YOU make this the best year yet! It sold out crazy fast last year, so don't miss out on our super cute wall calendars!
GET YOUR FOCUSED CALENDAR AND CHALLENGES FOR FREE!
However, you don't need to purchase the calendar to get involved (that's just a small perk, if you're interested). All you need to do is sign up here to opt-in to the weekly emails with FREE printables!
Now you can truly take control and get proactive as we work together to make 2021 the BEST year ever!
HOW TO MAKE THIS THE BEST YEAR EVER
I don't typically make New Year's resolutions (if you DO, check out this post on how to set goals and actually keep them!) because that brief spark of energy and motivation seems to run out real quick! I love to break things down and think about my goals, however, because I want to make sure I keep up that motivation all year long! That's why I'm taking it one month and one week at a time!
I like to start by planning ahead! You know how much I love planning an entire year ahead. It helps me stay focused and the accomplishment it brings is astronomical. But hey, no need to reinvent the wheel and no need to do it alone! We've got everything you need.
HOW THE FOCUSED CALENDAR AND CHALLENGES WORK
Our Focused in '21 challenge is simple. Each month has a theme, something to work on in YOUR life that will make you an absolute rockstar! And guess what!? We email you and send you all the details you need to know to get started, plus we send you straight to a post with even more weekly challenges and ideas focused on the theme to help you conquer your goals.
The great news? The challenge is completely free, all you have to do is follow along and reap the rewards! SIGN UP HERE to join the Focused In 2021 program for free. It's that simple! No strings attached!
GET OTHERS INVOLVED WITH YOU!
We encourage you to try the challenges! Do them! Get your friends and family involved! Trust me, they will be fun and they WILL make your life better if you give it the good ol' college try! For real… We've seen these challenges change lives for the better.
We'd love to see how you're doing each month! Don't forget to use the hashtag #Focusedin20 to share and see who else is joining in! Let's do this!!
TAKE A PEEK AT WHAT THE FOCUSED CALENDAR AND CHALLENGES WILL INCLUDE…
Help your wallet recover from the Holiday Hangover! We'll focus on simple budgeting, do a cash system for 1-month, get back-to-the-basics, go over debt vs savings, and participate in a week-long spending freeze challenge!
It is the month of love, after all! We'll work on being more selfless, spend quality time with those we care about, learn ways to be a better friend, find fun, cheap, or free date ideas (you know how we do!), give you ideas for affordable ways to show love (platonic and romantic), and more.
By now, most of us have fizzled out of our New Year's resolutions, but not over here at FCF! It's time for a reboot on our health. Work on all your health goals with a little extra encouragement from the Fun, Cheap or Free family!
The birds are chirping, the weather is warming up, and spring is in the air! With it, we've got that spring cleaning itch so let's open up those windows and get to work. It's time for a 30-day organization challenge, where we'll share quick and easy ways to clean and organize ALL THE THINGS!
This month is chaos with graduations, class parties, programs, and everything else that goes into wrapping up the school year. So we are going to make space in our lives to breathe, reflect on what matters most, figure out what we can get rid of (mentally and physically), and just simplify our lives a little bit more. Breathe, mama! You've got this!
It's time to look for the light and BE the light! Your goal for this month is to make it a habit to look on the bright side. We're going to work on some self love, create fun memories, focus on gratitude, celebrate the small things in life, and spread positivity! Summer is here and it's time to enjoy it!
Family is forever and they're worth fighting for! We're going to create stronger family bonds this month. Discover new foods together, learn new things together, be tourists in your own city, and get creative by exploring new hobbies together! Family time has never been so fun.
Summer is ending and it's time to get back into the swing of things! This month we'll shake off all the cobwebs and tackle those to-dos. Look forward to some productivity tips and tricks, ease your family back into routines, and set things up for school year success! Let's encourage ourselves to keep our brains fresh and active, just as we encourage our own kids. And of course, we will cover lots of back-to-school tips and tricks!
This month, it's time shop from your pantry, fridge, and freezer. Let's all try new recipes, share tutorials, get creative with our food, and even use this time to get some cleaning done. This month is going to have some really exciting things in store, including a giveaway, so be on the lookout!
We thought this was the perfect time of year for another month to focus on finances to prepare for the holidays! Don't let them sneak up on you! This year at FCF we are going to be ahead of the game. We'll have some challenges to help you save enough money for Christmas in one month!
‘Tis the season for thanks and giving, after all. Let us work on finding gratitude in everything. We will also have plenty of tips and tricks to get you ready for Thanksgiving, and lots of fun, cheap or free ways to show thanks to others.
It's the most wonderful time of the year. This month will be completely focused on those around us. Gift-giving, random acts of kindness, service to others, hosting parties, playing hostess to visiting friends and family, we'll cover it all.
