52 Week Savings Challenge
This weeks money challenge is to deposit $10.00 into your savings fund.  Making your total month to date $55.00!

Aren’t you excited that you are now seeing your money grow?  10 weeks is a long time… I want to hear from you! Be sure to comment on this post and share your excitement or frustrations with doing this challenge.

Accomplishing this savings challenge should be easy! Are having trouble finding $10.00? Here’s a few ways to find the extra money.

1.)  Wait 24 hours before buying something.  Thinking about the item overnight can make or break the purchase.

2.)  If you’re doing some retail shopping — ask for discounts.  Just ask, the worst they can say is No.

3.)  If you haven’t already done this and you are a Target shopper.  Sign up for Target’s Red Card.  You’ll save 5% off of your purchases and the money is taken out of your account, just like using your debit card.

4.)  Check of my friend Camille’s Chili Cheese Mac Receipe.  Pasta is a great filler and this is relativity an inexpensive dish that should provide left overs.  Stretching one meal into two can definitely help you find the money.

5.)  Consider making your own Health and Beauty products.  My friend Sandra has put together some amazing ways to make your own shampoo, conditioner  bubble bath and more.

And don’t forget to grab some more printable coupons before you head to the store!  That’s simple savings right there to instantly get your money back!

We’ve got 42 more weeks to go on the.. 52 Week Savings Challenge.  Next week we’ll be adding $11.00 toward our savings fund.

8 Weeks already Wow!  Time to deposit $8.00 into your savings fund.  Making your total month to date $36.00

Need to find $8.00?  I’ve been racking my brain of what you can do to save $8.00 this week.

Here’s some suggestions.

1.)   Have a recipe that calls for shredded chicken breast?  Instead, buy a whole chicken and shred it yourself.  This will be more time consuming but will save you a few dollars.

2.)  Check your tire air pressure.  Proper air pressure will improve your gas mileage and save you money in the long run.  Don’t have one?  Consider getting a Digital Tire Gauge for easy reading.

3.)  Need a baby gift?  Get a baby sling, just pay the cost of shipping.
Seven Slings
