Take the 52 Week Savings Challenge and Save $1,400 in a Year!

This past year is the first year that I have started to make a full-time income just from blogging. While that's great, saving is not always so easy. I have a good amount saved up in case of emergencies but we can all use a little help when it comes to banking some money for a special purchase, in case something goes wrong, or just because. Right? I started looking into weekly saving challenges and started to see just how easy it would be to save!

Did you know, that if you start the first week in January, and save just $1 that week, and then add a dollar each week until the end of the year, you can save nearly $1,400 by the end of 2015? I plan on doubling the recommended savings amount for this challenge each week to end up with nearly $2,800 and look into taking the boys on a trip to Disney at the end of the year with the extra money saved. No matter, what you are saving for, this 52 week savings challenge form can help! You can view the form below to get an idea of how the weekly savings challenge works, and then just click the link under the form to see the Google Document. Please remember to save your own copy of the form before making any changes!

There are two ways you can save, dollar amounts going up throughout the year, and dollar amounts going down throughout the year. When you open the Google form, just look for the tabs at the bottom of the page to toggle between the options.

Easy right? Is saving more on your "to do" list this year? If you have any money saving tips or tricks, I'd love to hear them below!
