30 Day Financial Fast

This month my Pastor introduced a "30 Day Financial Fast" for our church family. I have shared the fast with a few of my friends and close family members. However, I think we can all benefit from this fast. 
I hope you enjoy.

Remember commitment is key!

Details for Financial Fast
Through financial fasting we are exercising discipline in our spending and changing our mindset toward the way we handle our money. Get a journal and write down all the instructions for your financial fast and organize a plan and schedule before you begin. This is important because once the fast begins, you might try to convince yourself to quit. The schedule can then act as a contract you have made with the fast that you must keep. Remind yourself why you are doing the fast and remember that it is important.

• PRAY: daily for God to give you direction in managing your finances
• READ: books, blogs, & websites on financial empowerment
• SET FINANCIAL GOALS: Work toward paying down your highest bill first
• MAKE A COMMITMENT: Open up a savings account or deposit money into your existing savings account at every pay period
• SAVE: $5.00 a day if (you make a little more you can change this accordingly)
• PREPARE: a weekly budget for your household (only spend what you plan for)
• TRACK YOUR SPENDING: Write down all expenses (include everything i.e. gas, coffee, lunch, etc) – you will be surprised as to how much you spend in a week on these items.
• COOK: meals at home (as much as possible) – Limit dining out
• AVOID: using Credit Cards
• STAY AWAY: from Payday Loans & Check-Cashing stores
DO NOT: Go to the Mall
• NO: online shopping
• INVEST: in your children’s future… research ways to help your children understand fiscal responsibility and put them on a financial plan
• EXPECT: your “net worth” to grow, your “faith” to be stretched, and your “financial seeds” to reap a harvest!
