The start of a new year means it’s time to start our 52 week money saving challenge again – the absolute easiest way to save $1378 in just one year!
There are countless ways to save money, but it’s still something thousands of people struggle with. Most of the plans I see online are simply unrealistic and will set you up for failure. The 52 week money saving challenge works because it’s realistic and customizable and easy to understand.
This plan went viral several years ago and is still going strong. Everyone in my family does it, and we’ve all come up with our own ways to hack it. For example, my daughter does it in reverse, but I do it more randomly – and I’ll elaborate more on this below.
52 Week Money Saving Challenge
Each week add the specified amount of money each week to your envelope, box, account, etc., (mine goes into my Disney fund)
At the end the year, you’ll have saved a whopping $1378.00!! That’s it!!
You can add extra in the early weeks to make it easier in the later weeks. For example, if you add a few dollars extra a week for the first few months, you’ll be way ahead later in the year. So, if you have to skip a week (if money is tight or you forget), you can – and still be on track!! If you choose to do that, I made one sheet with the numbers calculated for you, and one that you can fill in yourself.
