Do you like craft beer? What about budgeting?
I’ll bet that you only really like one of those things. That’s fine. I used to hate budgeting too. In fact, I plain sucked at it, because I could never keep up with it.
But that’s before I learned how powerful money is. It’s a tool, just like a GPS, a GC-MS, or a statistics program. If you ignore it, you’ll forever be stuck running in circles and you won’t have the freedom to do the things you want to do.
That’s why I want to help you get EXCITED about budgeting! It’ll change your life just like the time you first saw Game of Thrones!
So here’s what I’m giving away:
One Custom-Designed, Science-Themed Beer Growler
This baby is the bomb. It’s got the formula for beer right on the label. Hops? Check. Water? Check. Grains? Check. Yeast? Check. Add them all together to get Science (with a capital S)? Check.
This growler is custom-designed from the Internet (i.e., some dude with mad skills on Etsy). You can’t buy it in stores, and that means you’re probably the only person who’ll have this growler in the brewery. Go ahead. You can brag to all your friends. 🙂
I lurves this thing. In fact, if I didn’t already have a beer growler of my own, I’d buy another one just for myself.
That’s why I’m so excited to give it away. Whoever gets this thing will be REAL lucky. Take it out on a hike. Take it on a boat. Row it over a moat. Take it on a birdwatching trip. Take it to game night. But most importantly – fill it up and drink a glass or two while setting up your budget.
One Year of Tiller Spreadsheet Budgeting Program
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about other scientists, it’s that filling out forms and spreadsheets is a recreational pastime.
That’s why the Tiller budgeting program is perfect for scientists!
Why, you ask?
The awesome-sauce thing about Tiller is that it automatically pulls your bank transactions every day and puts them into a nice, clean spreadsheet for you.
It’s exactly like getting automatic updates from GPS-collared animals delivered right to your mailbox (or, in this case, automatically written into your spreadsheet program). No more fussing around with collecting the data anymore. It does it for you automatically, and all you have to do is pop open your spreadsheet and categorize it.
You can start with a budget template from Tiller itself and customize it exactly how you want. Want to set up a separate savings fund for that unpaid internship in Guatemala? No probs, homes.
Want to set up a travel savings fund because you want to go to Switzerland for that sweet post-doc working with the Large Hadron Collider? Gotcha.
Tiller costs $59/year. That’s a lot of cash to lay out at first if you’re new to budgeting. But my hope is that the beer will help (it will!). And, once that year is up, $59 isn’t too big of a cost if it’s helping you as much as I know it can.
So, how do I enter?
I’m glad you asked!
There are several ways you can boost your odds of winning after you’ve already signed up. Make sure you do these things after confirming your entry, otherwise you won’t get the extra entries!
The giveaway will end next Wednesday, February 20, and I’ll be drawing a winner after that.
Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor! 🙂
