the 52 week money challenge

Like the old adage goes, “Money doesn’t grow on trees”, so I have decided to take on a new  kind of challenge. No, this challenge doesn’t involved swallowing obscene amounts of cinnamon powder or snorting wasabi (you can thank me later). But, however it does involve saving you money! What could be better than that?

The 52 Week Money Challenge is simple, during the first week of the year, you save $1. During the second week, you save $2. Keep adding a dollar each week so that during the last week of the year, you’re stashing away $52. You could even try the challenge in reverse, which may be easier to handle as the weeks pass.

Even without interest, this adds up to $1,378 over the course of a year! Imagine all the shoes you could buy??!?! (goes into mini shopping heart attack). In all seriousness, taking care of your finances is a guaranteed way in ensuring your independence. Try the 52 Week Money Challenge….what do you have to lose?

What will you be this halloween?
