Been quite a long time since I last wrote but I wanted to discuss the new year with everyone. New Year usually means new resolutions and things to change about yourself. At the beginning of this year I started the 52 week challenge. It’s a money savings challenge to help with what else . . . saving money! I was able to make it to April before having an emergency come up and having to withdraw from the jar. This time I’m starting fresh and I plan on making it till the end of the year and hitting that lovely savings total at the end of December.
Not sure what the 52 week challenge is?
It’s simple. You just add $1 each week. Week 1 you put $1 in the jar. Week 2, you put $2 in the jar and so on till the end of December where you will have saved $1,378! If you want to read more on my first time trying this out. You can check out my blog post here.
Now since I have only been doing photography as my income, it’s a little hard for me to put away each week. So, I started the challenge a little early. I figure while I have some extra cash, I might as well start putting it in the jar that way I’m not scrambling between photoshoots to get money for the jar.
Let me know if you’re going to start the challenge too! Also, if you have any money saving tips that work for you, comment below and let me know!
