The Budget Challenge: 25 SBD Pool Rewards

in #thebudgetchallenge2 years ago (edited)

There are numerous contests or challenges here on Steemit that became very successful since they create that excitement for self-improvement and skill development for our fellow Steemians.

Some of which are still running up to now such as #sevendaybnwchallenge #collorchallenge #openmic #memechallenge and other challenges related to Arts, Photography, Life, Music, etc. Recently, @maverickinvictus“A 2018 Vision Board Contest” really made a blast at the beginning days of this year. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to join the contest since I have already written a post related to it, but I encouraged my friends to participate on the said challenge. I can feel how excited they were while creating those Vision Boards.

After posting an article on how I manage my personal budget, I was thinking of having a contest as well since I believe asking “How about you’s” isn’t enough to encourage my fellows to start having or enhancing their budget plans. Those 2018 Vision Boards surely entails financial necessities and I think having a budget plan is one of the best ways to realize those visions. Will this challenge excite the Steemians as well? I hope so.


I have posted countless finance-related articles lately. But this time, I want to bring it up to a higher level. I am initiating this #thebudgetchallenge which is very far from the challenges you guys are familiar with. This is basically a finance-related challenge that could aid our fellow Steemians with their financial growth, and I am planning to do this often, maybe once a week.

Are you ready for the first ever #thebudgetchallenge?

#thebudgetchallenge No. 1: “The Budget Plan”

“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”.png

This is my previously-made article about my personal budget plan entitled “What Is Your Budget Principle?”


I have shared my Personal Budgeting Principle with their respective budget allocations.

I have also shared how I managed to attain my budget principle while keeping track of my target and actual expenses.

For this challenge, I want you to create your own budget plan.

I hope having this initiative will encourage you, my fellow Steemians, to take your finance budgeting seriously. I am positively looking forward for your continuous application of this financial journey even after joining this contest for I believe the biggest challenge is not creating a budget plan nor having a budget principle, but the consistency of sticking with it.

I am looking forward to see your entries!



Yes pasok pa po :D Thank you so much for participating! Winners will be announced hours from now :)

nag hinay2 na ka ug compute sa score namo she? hehe good luck

Lodi, pls check my entry here.

Yay thanks for taking part in this challenge ser!

feel nako wa nay chance hahaha

This is amazing. Unique contest. Yes we have a lot of dreams and goals here in steemit. some financial problem is not about how to earn but how to keep and spending money wisely.


i couldnt agree more :) I'll be looking forward for your entry ;)

Great initiative! I've always expressed my belief also that financial freedom is not just attained by the money that comes in, in most cases the deal breaker is how much money comes out. One can earn a million dollars in a month and still be left with nothing the month after is expenditures is over a million on the same month.

Supporting this! I'll throw in 5 sbd (not much) to the prize pool, for your sole discretion on usage. ^_^

5 sbd sent!

I'm not sure if I can join this because I'm impulsive. While I keep track of my expenses, I don't like the idea of constricting myself on a particular budget scheme. Haha.
