30 Days of Savings Challenge

By Molly Herndon

We’re inviting all military family service providers and Extension educators to join us in the 30 Days of Savings Challenge this September and save $100.

The challenge works by following a simple chart to make small daily deposits that add up to $100 in 30 days. We are encouraging educators to complete the challenge with their clients and students. By modeling positive financial actions, we can teach service members and military families valuable money saving tips and strategies in September.

Participants can register to participate in the challenge. By registering, you’ll receive weekly emails with savings messages, reminders for upcoming events, and educational resources.
