Here is a sneaky savings tip. It has been shared online in various fashions, but here it is anyway. I hope it helps you! The 52 week money challenge is a sneaky way to save throughout the year. Number each week of the year (1-52). For each week, put in the amount of money that matches the number week on the calendar. We put our savings in glass jar, so that we can see our money grow. Here is an example, using a 2015 calendar. January 1st is on Thursday, so that will represent the first week of the year. Week 1 (Dec. 28-Jan. 3): Put in $1 Week 2 (January 4-10): Put in $2 Week 3 (January 11-17): Put in $3 Week 4 (January 18-24): Put in $4 After four weeks, you only have $10 in your jar. No big deal, right? But over the course of the year, as you add the money up each week, your savings will really grow. By the end of the year, you will have saved nearly $1,400! And the most you will have to set aside in any given week is $52. Stay home instead of eating out that week and you're over halfway to your $52 goal. Happy savings!
