#NewDecadeNewYou: Setting Money Goals for 2020 and Beyond

Financial Goals New Decade New You Contest Winner

Now that we’re almost a month into the new decade, you may have decided on some personal goals to make this year your best one yet to help propel you on your journey in becoming the best version of yourself in 2030. To kick off January with a bang, we challenged the Mint community to share their budget in 2020 and compare it to how they want to see their budget transform in 2030. While we loved all of them, here are some of our favorites: 



This was the biggest trend we saw throughout the sweepstakes. Clearly, Mint-ers are NOT kidding when it comes to food. We saw all kinds– convenience store pizza to pizza in Naples, boxed mac and cheese to truffle mac and cheese, fast food to fine dining. But the one we found to be the most #relatable?
