A Great New Years Resolution: 52 Week Money Saving Challenge

Jan 07, 2015 10:51PM ● Published by Erin Frisch

After enjoying several weeks or merriment, many people find themselves thinking that we could use a little more in our pocket this time of year. So why not start saving now for next year? Try the 52 week money saving challenge where each week you put a set, but increasing, amount of money in the savings jar. By the end of the year you could save up to $1,378.00 or more depending on how much you are willing to put in each day. It's very quite simple but here's an example:

1) Start out putting $1 (or any amount you choose) in the jar for week 1
2) In week 2, increase the amount by $1 and add $2 to the jar
3) In week 3, add another $1 and add a total of $3 to the jar
4) Repeat for all 52 weeks!
