Project: Make an Infographic of Your Weekly Spending

Visualizing where your money goes can help you find ways to save.


We all spend money on things we need, things we think we need, and things we know we don’t need. In the process, we often overlook how the little things add up. That’s why this month’s #30DaysofGOOD Challenge asks us all to pay attention to our spending and become more financially fit.

the OBJECTIVE
It's time to pay attention and track your spending. Time to stop wasting your money in favor of spending it wisely and saving for the future.


the ASSIGNMENT
Keep track of the amount of money you spend this week and make an infographic about your habits. When designing your infographic, get creative and find ways to save money next week!

the REQUIREMENTS

Upload a ,jpg file with a high enough resolution (at least 300dpi) to be seen clearly here. We’ll take submissions through Tuesday, January 31. The winner will receive a GOOD t-shirt and year's subscription to the magazine.

However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
