Take the 52 Week Savings Challenge! It’s simple, fun, and at the end of 2015 you’ll have over $1,000 saved without even thinking about it! After paying bills, buying groceries, and getting gas it may seem like there is not enough money to stash away.

However, this challenge is different! Every week you will save one more dollar than you did the week before. The first week, you will start by putting away $1.00 in your savings or club account. The second week you will put away $2.00, the third week $3.00, and so forth. Each week the amount of money you stash increases by $1.00 and correlates with the number of weeks you’ve been challenging yourself to save.

On the last week of 2015 you will put $52.00 into that same account. By the end of the challenge, you will have saved $1,378. Think about what you could put that money toward—without feeling short changed. Saving a small amount at a time makes it feel manageable and easy!
