A (free!) year-long program with monthly themes, printable calendars, and weekly challenges to help you budget, get organized, stress less, and have the best year of your life.
Can you believe it's already 2020!? The year 2019 was a HUGE year for Fun Cheap or Free and for our family. Now we're looking forward to the upcoming year and we are stoked to bring back our FCF year-long campaign for positive change in our lives.
We've been sharing this free program since 2014 and last year we had over 46,000 people sign up to join us! So this year, we've made it better than ever. You heard that right!!! We've got a BIG surprise for you! This year, we have stepped up our game a little. We've taken our little monthly calendar and turned it into a full-fledged wall calendar that you can purchase and hang on your wall! Say what!?! We've put our blood, sweat and tears into this small project because we want to help YOU make this the best year yet!
*Printed calendars are sold out (Thanks for your support!), however, we have a digital download for sale as well so you can purchase the whole year in advance to create your own calendar!
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!
Now you can truly take control and get proactive as we work together to make 2020 the BEST year ever!
HOW TO MAKE 2020 THE BEST YEAR EVER
I don't typically make new years resolutions (if you DO, check out this post for ways to actually keep your resolutions) 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, I want to make sure I keep up that motivation all year long! That's why I'm taking it 1 month and 1 week at a time!
What I like to do is start by planning ahead! You all 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.
Our Focused in '20 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! All you need to do is SIGN UP HERE to join the program for free. It's that simple! No strings attached!
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 hashtage #Focusedin20 to share and see who else is joining in! Let's do this!!
LET'S TAKE A PEEK
Helping our wallets recover from their Holiday Hangover! We'll focus on simple budgeting, doing a cash system for 1-month, getting back-to-basics, debt vs savings, and a week-long spending freeze challenge!
It is the month of love, after all! We will work on being more selfless, spending quality time with those we care about, ways to be a better friend, fun, cheap or free date ideas (you know how we do!), 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, 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, we will 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 got this!
Whoa, is it summer already?? This month we'll focus on making it the best summer ever with a fun summer bucket list! Plan out your activities in advance, learn cheap travel tricks, summer party ideas on a dime, great summer recipes, fun activities to do with your family, and more!
The kids are home, bored, and driving you nuts. This month we'll continue focusing on summer AND all things family. Live a little! Have dance parties in your kitchen, get outside and play together, do something a little crazy! Keep tackling your bucket lists and enjoy lots of cheap and easy activities, as well as all your family vacations!
Summer is ending and it is time to get back into the swing of things! This month we'll shake off all the cobwebs and tackle those to-dos. Productivity tips and tricks, easing our families back into routines and setting 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 is time shop from our pantries, fridges and freezers. We will be trying new recipes, sharing tutorials, getting creative and even using this time to get some cleaning done. This month is going to have some really exciting things in store including a giveaway and a surprise we are working on now so be on the lookout!
We thought this was the perfect time of year for another month to focus on our 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 will cover it all.
So what do you say? Are you in??
Focused in '20 is coming at you so get excited to make the most out of this year taking it one day at a time! It's going to be a blast and even better that we get to do it together!
