I’m so excited to start our 52 Week Savings Challenge.
The first few weeks will be simple and throughout the year the challenge will get harder. The purpose of the 52 Week Savings Challenge is to discipline yourself into learning how to save and be committed to saving the amount listed for the appropriate week.
Many people are concerned about the amounts toward the end of the year. It get’s harder to save when we are spending so much during the holiday season. If you are concerned about that too, I have the perfect solution for you. Do this method in reverse! That way you are putting less in the savings towards the end of the year. It’s kind of like you are rewarding yourself by paying less, not to mention this would work great as a Christmas fund!
Today you need to deposit a $1.00 into your savings fund!
What can you give up for $1.00 in order to do this? Here are my 5 tips of finding a $1.00 to spare.
- Forgo the fast food restaurant dollar menu
- Bypass the vending machine at work
- Check the cushions of your couch
- Look down at the ground while walking and pick up loose change
- Skip Redbox for the week
What an easy week! 51 more to go!

Next week we’ll be adding $2.00 to our savings fund.
