Did you know that April is Financial Literacy Month?!!! Each year at this time, Dissipating Disparities, Inc. places an additional focus on financial literacy.… This year we are trying something new! We will be going on a 21-Day Financial Fast starting Monday, April 3rd (from acclaimed author and financial columnist, Michelle Singletary)! We are both excited and nervous lol! The purpose of this financial fast is to help us gain a new perspective on how we use money and gain a new level of discipline in our use of credit. Everyone is encouraged to keep a journal and create a budget so that we can become better stewards of our finances. Be sure to reach out, comment and share about your journey for we will do the same 🙂
The rules are simple:
For 21 Days, we will refrain from any non-emergency or non-essential spending. An emergency (or essential item) is defined as food, hygiene, school supplies, cleaning supplies, medicine/medical supplies only.
No going to the mall, retain establishments, online or window shopping.
No restaurant, carry out or delivery meals including fast food and coffee.
No movies or purchasing gifts or gift cards.
No credit card or debit card use. Use CASH ONLY.
