Three years ago, we published 21 Days to Healthier Finances with the help of 22 great financial bloggers. (What? You didn’t know there was a bonus chapter?)
What we loved about the project was that each blogger brought their own take to what it means to start living a healthier financial lifestyle. The advice offered includes concrete steps where to start, how to measure your success, valuable resources, and a whole lot of cheerleading. As the book makes clear, some sacrifices will need to be made - but there are also great rewards from paying off your debt, saving for the future, and gaining the independence along the way.
To celebrate the success of the 21 Days e-book, we asked contributors to post a three year update. We wanted to see where they are now and if they have any new wisdom to offer. Over the summer we'll be posting a list of who's updated to keep the fun going all summer long!

L Bee and the Money Tree
First up with a look back Lauren Bowling of L Bee and the Money Tree. Not to steal her thunder, but Lauren offers up a new tip to help you on your path to healthier finances:
Pay Yourself First
And don't forget to check back in next week to see the next post looking back on 21 Days to Healthier Finances.
Next in the fray is Jana from Jana Says. Jana originally offered some money management tips for couples. And her post examines those original tips and offers some additional wisdom.
Personal experience showed me how important Jana's original advice about communication, compromise, and understanding are to a great relationship. This applies to finances, and everything else. So I know I read her new tips carefully.
Greg from Club Thrifty takes a look at what the last 3 years meant for Holly and him. And what he found was that getting there finances in order put them in a position to pursue, and realize, their dreams.
Of course, hard work was required.
We encourage you to check out Greg's post by following this link. It is worth your time.
