In 2013, I did the “52 week money challenge” and it’s what paid for all of the nursery furniture. I wasn’t planning on being pregnant when I started, I just wanted a way to force myself to save a little “just in case it’s needed” money. Well, it’s a good thing because we ended up needing it!
The idea is that on week 1 you put $1 away. On week 2, put away $2. Week 3, $3 and so on. By the end of the year, you should have $1,378 saved. It’s a good way to save if you’re not good at saving! I’m starting an account at the local credit union and the plan is to use this for gifts etc for next year.
Anyone else thinking of giving it a go this year?
