At the beginning of the year, there seems to be quite a few posts about the 52 Weeks Money Challenge on Facebook and Pinterest. Perhaps you've heard about it.
During the first week of the year, you save $1. For the second week, you save $2. And so on...until you come to the 52nd week of the year and save $52. By the end of the year, you will have saved $1,378.
A handy check-off chart can be found at this pin which leads to A Mother Thing.
This year, I'm going to do the 52 Week Money Challenge in reverse. So, during the first week I'll save $52 and then end the year on week 52 by saving $1. It seems like it would be a better fit because there are more expenses it seems towards the end of the year than at the beginning.
I've already deposited $52 in a savings account for the week, so I'm off to a good start.
Here's the 52 Week Money Challenge Reverse Chart below:
Either way, making it a point to save money this year is a good goal. What's even better, by the end of the year $1,378 will be in a savings account and can be invested!
