If you're looking for new and creative ways to save a few hundred dollars a month without doing anything crazy, drastic, or extremely frugal, why not try a Money Savings Challenge?
Listen in as Ashley shares a couple of Money Savings Challenges that you can do on a monthly basis to make saving money a lot more fun.

“So we gotta set realistic expectations for yourself so that it is motivating. So you wanna do it again, right? But if you just set your expectations too high and you wanna not spend anything for an entire month and that's not realistic and you end up having to spend some money, then you feel like you failed and what was the point, right? So make it something that is doable for you.”
