The 52 week money challenge.

You use dollar bills for this challenge, and you do this every week.

I prefer to start with week 52: $52 then work my way down to week 1: $1. This way, you are starting with a high amount, paying less each month.

Some people prefer to start week one with $1, week two at $2 and etc. 

Either way, you will save $1,378 by the end of the year. The key is to be consistent.

The 30 day challenge 

You can do this with dollars and you do it every day. Day 1 you put in $1. Monday, you put in $2. You can use a calendar for this, folding your dollar bills.

By day 30, should have put $30 that day.

The first month, you’ll have $465.00 saved if you save everyday for the month. If you do this every day for 365 days, you will have saved $5766.00. You can do this with dimes or quarters instead of dollar bills.

An extra tip: 

Empty your pockets and purses for loose change.

My husband empties his pockets every night and puts the loose change in a jar in his closet. He doesn’t like carrying coins around so this works for him well.

My husband had over $700 worth of loose change last year. Could you imagine how much you could save if each family member did this???
