Take the 52 Week Savings Challenge and Save $1,400 in a Year!

This past year is the first year that I have started to make a full-time income just from blogging. While that’s great, saving is not always so easy. I have a good amount saved up in case of emergencies but we can all use a little help when it comes to banking some money for a special purchase, in case something goes wrong, or just because. Right? I started looking into weekly saving challenges and started to see just how easy it would be to save!

Did you know, that if you start the first week in January, and save just $1 that week, and then add a dollar each week until the end of the year, you can save nearly $1,400 by the end of 2015? I plan on doubling the recommended savings amount for this challenge each week to end up with nearly $2,800 and look into taking the boys on a trip to Disney at the end of the year with the extra money saved.

  1. How awesome! The only problem I foresee is saving that much during the holiday season. With a few adjustments I know we could easily swing this.

  2. I think this is a great way to save…I'm thinking about doing it backwards; it would be impossible for me to save the extra $200ish in December.

  3. I saw this on someone else's blog and didn't know where it originated. I love this idea and showed it to my husband. We are going to try this too. Thanks!

  4. This is a wonderful idea! However, I have so many bills now (mostly medical) that this would be hard to do right now. I'll have to keep this in mind in the future, though.

  5. My friend Edee started this last yr and she loves that it saved her money for Christmas. I could never be so devoted. We have a money jar that we save all our coins in and cash in in Feb for our family vacation. usually cash in about $400

  6. We're big savers. Close to half the main paycheck goes to savings to help pay for future or unexpected expenses. It's nice to have that safety net there when we need it.

  7. This does look like an effortless way to save money, and I am pretty sure that I can do this and I need to start saving this year. IT looks like a fun challenge!

  8. This sounds like a great way to save up through the year. For most this is probably do-able. for me, there is no such thing as saving unfortunately. 🙁
