52 Week Money Savings Challenge: Save $1378 in 52 Weeks!

November 30, 2014Holly Sosa

Finances aren’t something any of us enjoy talking about. I mean, there is never enough, am I right? But it’s important for your family to save. Whether it’s for an emergency fund, a Christmas shopping fund, or even for college, learning how to save money is important. At 29, I’m still learning & just started a family emergency fund last year (which ended up saving our rears when we ended up with two flat tires in under two months!). With a new year just around the corner, it’s a great time to get a fresh start with a savings account to set yourself up for financial success in 2015.
Starting a savings account can feel daunting, especially when you feel like there just isn’t enough left over at the end of the week to put into savings. With the right baby steps, you can set yourself up for financial success in 2015 with this simple, easy, & totally do-able savings plan that starts out with just $1. That’s all it takes to get the ball rolling on this savings plan. And if you stick to it each week in 2105, you will have saved $1378!
I know to some, $1378 may not seem like much, but that’s a great little emergency fund or Christmas shopping fund to help you avoid the inevitable holiday financial hangover. But the point of this is baby steps. Start saving in small amounts so you can see instant results & stay motivated.
In 2015, my family will be saving each week with this easy 52 week money challenge. I created a bright & cheery printable to share with all of you so that you can participate as well. I’ll be printing this & placing it in my planner to keep track of each week, but you could also display this on your fridge; or even tape it to a mason jar & keep your deposits in there each week. Just click the image below for the full resolution (best on an 8×11 or smaller).
If you’re looking to gain more financial peace in 2015, be sure to check out the Capital One 360 Black Friday sale. Their products are designed to help you save time & money. Capital One 360 is decking the halls with deals you can bank on, including new account bonuses, referral bonuses and closing cost credits. While you may have gifts, greetings and get-togethers on the brain, it’s important not to lose sight of your financial goals. All of Capital One 360’s Black Friday Sale deals are designed to encourage you to keep your finances at the forefront of your mind. In addition to taking advantage of deals on banking, brokerage and mortgage products yourself, you can give your friends and family the gift of financial peace of mind by encouraging them to take advantage of the deals and refer them to the sale. If they sign up, you may be eligible for a $40 referral bonus. Make sure you add Capital One 360 to your shopping list this season to ensure you don’t miss out on these savings, deals, & financial peace of mind.

    How did you make this? I want to do a reverse savings challenge where you start with the $52 and work your way back, but I’m having a hard time creating one as cute as yours!

      Were you able to make this in reverse? I’m not great on the computer so making this myself isn’t going to happen. If you made it in reverse would you be willing to share it with me? Thanks
