Young & Free Spokester Maine, Mallory Lavoie, is challenging young adults to save more money this summer with the 30-Day $100 Challenge. Lavoie has crafted a Challenge that is easy-to-follow, holds participants accountable, and leaves you with $100 in your pocket at the end of 30 days.

Maine Credit Union League

Lavoie not only wants to get millennials involved, but credit unions too! Those who accept the challenge will stay accountable by sharing photos with Lavoie on Instagram—these photos could be of how the challenge is going, how they are saving money, or how they are spending smarter.

The Challenge started on July 1st and runs through the end of July. During the entire month of July, Lavoie will provide daily tips and motivation both on and on Instagram at @YoungFreeME.  Credit unions are encouraged to follow along, participate in the Challenge, and leave comments on the blog and on Instagram. You can officially join #TeamOwnIt by following @YoungFreeME on Instagram for daily tips and motivation!

We had a chance to catch up with Mallory via phone. Here's what she had to say!
