Welcome to week #7 of the 52 Week Savings Challenge! Are you participating? If so, how is it going for you? On my last post about starting the 52 Week Savings Challenge, reader Cheri mentioned the following and I think it’s a fabulous idea since the end of the year can be very tight for many.
“What a great idea! I have decided to start at the last week (#52) and work my way to the first week (#1). Because money begins to get tight toward the end of the year due to more birthdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas, I have decided to work from week 52 backwards to week 1. I have already made the deposits for week 52, 51, 50 and 49! The hardest weeks are already behind me and I have saved over $200!”
And of course, whether you’re starting from week #1 or week #52, it’s never too late to start period. Be sure to print the form to help keep track. I am using Friday as my day to keep track of what week it is but you can decide which day you want to use.
