  • 52 Week Money Saving Challenge

     

    i saw this briefly mentioned on youtube so i woke my mother p and told her that we're going to be doing this either way i told her to challenge others to do this, so i figured i would do as i told her and come on here to spread the word.

    the idea is very simple save the amount of money according to what week of the year it is(week 23 save $23) so that by years end you would have saved a total of $1378!!! when i found out what the year end total was i was pleasantly surprised because chances are i throw more then that away on frivolous things

    for those of us iffy savers(plan to save a certain amount then because we want that new pair of shoes or something else use the $$ and get all out of wack..im one of them ) this challenge can help get us acclimated to saving even a few $ when we can. and im thinking that since we know what the actual end result will be we'll be just a little more motivated

    so who is in with me? since im obviously starting this just a little late by weeks end i will have $3 in my jar

    I'm in. I have several different savings accounts, but they are mostly long term. I think I'll get a nice little mason jar to put my money in. I'll go ahead and throw 3 bucks in too.

    I have a spaghetti jar that's just collecting dust in my cabinet. I'll use that instead.

    because i NEED to deperately get on a budget when i can im going to double up the weeks amount to be added. the money saved from this is going to finance some sort of trip(s) for next year.

    I have 5 bucks in so i guess next week (4th) will be $4 + $3(for this week) making it $7?

    I have $6 already in too. I guess it depends on whether you put in at the beginning or end of the week. Are yall keeping your savings in a jar or a bank account?

    naksah
    yes - $1 for the week of Jan 2nd, $2 for last week (the 9th), $3 for this week and $4 for next week = $10 for this month.

    I'm in. I have a higher savings goal for the year but I like the idea of putting money away weekly. I have a savings account set-up just for the challenge and hopefully I can keep my hands out of it. I didn't even do the paperwork to have it linked to my bank card just to make it harder to touch.

    Thanks for getting this started. This is a good motivator.
