52 Week Savings Challenge – Week 5

52 Week Savings Challenge Week 5, Welcome back!  If you are just joining us, visit 52 Week Savings Challenge Week 1 to catch up with us and get started.

52 week savings challenge


This week’s challenge  is to deposit $5.00 into your savings fund.  Making your month to date total $15.00!

Are you staying motivation to get these deposits done?  Or are you getting a little bored with the challenge?  However you are feeling don’t give up!  Stick with it.

You can change it around if you like… Here’s a few ideas:

1.)  Using Random.Org, Choose a number from 5-52.  Whatever number comes up let’s say it was 34, put $34.00 into your savings instead and just cross that one off the printable list.  This way you can make a game out of it.

2.)  Start at the end and go backwards the next 5 weeks.

If money is tight and you need to pull in some extra income, here are some ideas to help.

1.) Grab some printable coupons and take them with you while you grocery shop.

2.) Consider taking surveys.  Here are some companies that currently have openings:

3.)   File your federal tax refund for free!  That’ll save you $20-25 dollars and you can use that towards your savings challenge.

  1. I’m still going, although I imagine as the weeks go on it will be become more challenging, but that’s part of the fun! It will be all worth it in the end!
