My two friends and I are saving money together this year. We decided to save every week following this chart. Every week we stash away a little extra, each of us saving for a special treat. I am saving to have a little extra spending money on our vacation in July. This year I would like to try Paddle boarding. Below is the formula for our weekly savings plan.
It is called the 52 week money-saving challenge. I am doubling the amount each week because I need to have it by July, Susan and Erin are doing it as stated above. I keep my money in a mason jar (can’t wait to move it all into a bigger one!) and keep the jar on my bathroom vanity. I keep the weekly plan and pencil to check off the week’s deposit. It is not in the hub of the house, so I am less tempted to dip into it, seeing the form beside it is also a deterrent.
In my search for the plan I found another plan that is done in reverse, I like that one better but, I’m sticking to the original one with my friends for now.
