How’d You Do During This Year’s Money Challenge?

How’d You Do During This Year’s Money Challenge?

That’s a wrap for the first ever Lifehacker Ultimate Money Challenge. If you joined us at any point in this journey, we want to hear from you. If you didn’t, but you have a few ideas for 2017, we want to hear from you, too!

In 2016, we challenged you to cut back on impulsive spending, sell your unwanted junk, haggle your bills, and even jumpstart your retirement savings. You’ve been sharing your progress each month, and now we want to know how much you saved, total (including this month’s Gift Yourself Challenge). To recap the twelve challenges:

January: No Restaurant Spending

February: Haggle Your Bills

March: Curb Impulse Spending

April: Save for Retirement

May: Save Money on Interest

June: Haggle Everything

July: Upgrade and Save

August: Keep the Change

September: Find a Cheaper Mobile phone Plan

October: Prepare for Holiday Spending

November: Sell Your Unwanted Stuff

December: Gift Yourself

Not all of these challenges applied to everyone, but chances are, there were at least a few you could join. If you did, tell us how much you saved. Also, we’re launching another challenge for 2017. If you have any feedback — what worked, what didn’t work — sound off below. If you have any suggestions for new challenges in 2017, we’re open to those, too!
