Um, hi. 2018 called and said it wants it's pulse checked because it went by so fast, there's no way it really happened! It's 2019 already?? Yeesh. Looking back on 2018, it was an incredible year. Not only in my personal life, but here at FunCheapOrFree as well. I shared a little bit of over on Instagram recently about some of the big changes happening for us in 2019. However, while we believe in shaking things up and adventuring into new territory, here are FCF we also believe firmly in things that are “tried and true”. Thus, by popular demand I (re)introduce to you, this year’s FCF year-long campaign for positive change in our lives…

What's in Store for the Year:

January: Focus on Finances

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! Buy everything you need now, because starting January 13th no spending a dime for 7 days!

February: Focus on Relationships

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/free date ideas, how to have an affordable Valentine's day, affordable ways to show love (platonic and romantic), and more.

March: Focus on Fitness

By now, most of us have fizzled out of our New Year's Resolutions…but not over here at FCF! We will be drinking more water, taking more steps, discover healthy recipes, learning lots of great (simple) exercises to do at home (even while brushing your teeth!), will learn cheap/free ways to be active, beauty health and wellness tips, and more.

April: Focus on Organization

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 . We will do a 30-day organization challenge, will learn to make affordable cleaning products, will learn quick and easy ways to clean/organize things, and will have tons of printables for organizing every aspect of your life.

May: Simplify

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. It’s going to be a great month without adding extra to your plate!

June: Focus on Summer

Whoa, is it summer already?? This month we'll focus on making it the best summer ever! 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, games and get-to-know you activities you've probably never tried and yes maybe a fun bucket list for your family!

July: Focus on Summer Cont.

The kids are home…bored…and driving you nuts. This month we'll continue focusing on summer AND all things family. We encourage you to learn to let loose and 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!

August: Back to Productivity

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. Don’t worry, we may even add a few reminders to breath.

September: Shelftember

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!

October: Focus on Finances

We thought this was the perfect time of year for another month to focus on our finances. Why? For starters the holidays are coming! Seriously? Already? Yes, it's true! This year at FCF we are going to be ahead of the game. Freezing our spending, looking for ways to save money, earn money, and we'll even have some challenges to help you save enough money for Christmas…in one month!

November: Focus on Gratitude

‘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/free ways to show thanks to others.

December: Focus on Others

It's the most wonderful time of the year. This month will be all things OTHERS. Gift-giving, random acts of kindness, service to others, hosting parties, playing hostess to visiting friends and family, we will cover it all. Let's turn the tables and exercise our ability to focus on others…and in return, better ourselves.

A year of month long challenges, each month with a different focus to help you have the best year yet!

    • AvatarFunCheapOrFree says

      Hi MaryAnn! We always suggest adapting it to work for you! Most of the challenges don’t directly correlate with seasons, so there shouldn’t be too many challenges that don’t work! Good luck.

    • AvatarFunCheapOrFree says

    Its already so late in the year but have to start somewhere right!? 🙂 I’m excited and motivated to get things on track and put out this dumpster fire that is my life lol I’ve been overwhelmed and just felt like giving up for so long, but with 5 kiddos (4 still at home, one 19 year old that has already moved out ;( ) I owe it to our family to do better and really thrive! Thank you Jordan I’ve been watching your videos and reading your content for a while, but I’m finally going to do the work to make it work!

  15. AvatarHeather says

    I have all the calendars up to September, do we have to wait for the October – December ones to come by email? I was wanting to go ahead and print them off so I could already have them and be ready! 🙂

    • AvatarJordan Page says

      Unfortunately, you have to wait for them to come out at the beginning of the month. But make sure that you watch for a way to be able to have them all printed out ahead of time for next year! 😉
