52 Week Savings Challenge 2014

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 today, and save just $1 this week, and then add a dollar each week until the end of the year, you can save nearly $1,400 by the end of 2014? 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!


52 Week Savings Challenge 3 Ways to Save in One Form

Remember to save a copy of the form to your own drive before making changes. 

There are three ways you can save, dollar amounts going up throughout the year, dollar amounts going down throughout the year, and setting your own amount to save each week as you can. 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!

How awesome! The only problem I foresee is saving that much during the holiday season. With a few adjustments I know we could easily swing this.

This is awesome! 10% of my paycheck automatically goes into savings which I love!

This is so awesome and I saw the same problem Marcie.

Vanessa said...

I'm taking this challenge and next week I'm putting in $2! Love it.

I think this is a great way to save...I'm thinking about doing it backwards; it would be impossible for me to save the extra $200ish in December.

Rachel @ Following In My Shoes said...

I think I may try it -- it would be an easy to save blog money!

Mellisa said...

This is such a great challenge. I would love to start something like this.

Leilani @ Her Good Life said...

My friend shared this with me back in Dec. It's such a great idea!

Shell Feis said...

Ooh I love the trip to Disney idea! I want to do something like this.

Faith and Family Reviews said...

I saw this on someone else's blog and didn't know where it originated. I love this idea and showed it to my husband. We are going to try this too. Thanks!

This is a wonderful idea! However, I have so many bills now (mostly medical) that this would be hard to do right now. I'll have to keep this in mind in the future, though.

My friend Edee started this last yr and she loves that it saved her money for Christmas. I could never be so devoted. We have a money jar that we save all our coins in and cash in in Feb for our family vacation. usually cash in about $400

Mellisa said...

I love this idea! It's always great to put back a little money and this makes it easier.

Toni Patton said...

I am really going to try to do this all the way through this year.

I love this concept!

Tammy said...

We're big savers. Close to half the main paycheck goes to savings to help pay for future or unexpected expenses. It's nice to have that safety net there when we need it.
