I find this challenge to not only be a fantastic way to structure one’s spending, but also a way to work through the challenge as a group and refute ‘budgeting’ as a term so evil it’s equated with ‘taxes’ and ‘IRS’ – *shiver.

Thanks to my admitted love of all things fabulous, I’ve decided it’s time to get out of my comfort zone with money.

What better way to kick start fall than with a budgeted lifestyle shift that doesn’t take away from you style, but rather adds chic career savvy?
