In our second SkimmU course, we teamed up with Shannon McLay, CEO and founder of The Financial Gym, to talk about how to hit some of your biggest bucket-list goals. You know, like becoming a homeowner, confidently adding a tiny plus-one to your fam, and planning a big vacation (one day).  ICYMI: you can watch it right here.

Budgeting for the Big Stuff, Skimm'd

  • Once you have a big goal, research all the related costs. Then break it down into smaller parts, based on your timeline.

  • Naming your savings account, automating monthly contributions, and celebrating small wins can help you reach your goals faster.

  • Don't let setbacks throw you off course.

  • Before making big lifestyle changes (hi, buying a home and starting a family), test-drive what your new budget would be.

  • You can put aside money for upcoming trips every month – especially if travel is a non-negotiable for you.
