    Default 12 (money) Days of Christmas Challenge

    rules -- there aren't any really, but you HAVE to put the amount of money in for the day

    ex: On the fourth day of Christmas put in 4 dollar bills or 4 quarters, any amount, but it HAS to be equal to the day... on the eighth day, 8 dollars or quarters etc...

    If you put a dollar per day, it comes out to $78 a rotation, I know not everyone can put dollars in, you want to put dimes? It's YOUR Twelve Days of Christmas have fun with it!!!

    I think I am going to keep it up every month and use the money I saved through out the year towards money

    Cute idea! Not sure where I'd find the money, but I like the idea! Particularly winding up with $78 at the end!

    I'm in. I think I will use the money to be put in the no work summer fund. This is such a great idea. Keep me posted on exactly what to do, but I think I got the gist of it.
    I would like to try to keep it up all year and see what I come up with. I know that I can do it.

    Sounds good to me. I'm in for $1.00. Money will go to my new shingles on my roof fund for this coming spring.

    I figures out a little formula for the type (dollar, quarter, etc.) of money I will put in for the day of the week. I will start with $1 for the first 5 days. The money will be used to replenish the emergancy fund, then for my no work summer fund, and then to save for a new cook top. I plan on participating in this challenge for myself into next year.

    Dec. 1st for me too. I'm doing 12 days of $1 and then start again with 12 more $1 days. That will bring me to Christmas eve. and a good head start on the roofing job. January (and each month following) I will do something similar.

    I started today and put $1 in. I'm going through the entire month putting in a scheduled type of money each day. Days 1-5 are $1. I will continue into next year. Hoping to replenish the emergancy fund first. I will deposite the money on the last day of the month.

    O.K I put $2 in today. I'm putting in the number of money as the day is. Example Dec. 2=$2. Right?
