    Default 52 Week Money Challenge

    When I saw this I thought some villagers would like to copy this idea.

    I have done something like this for years.I set an amount that I want for Christmas and then divide it by 365,and put the amount away every day.It runs from Nov-Nov,so I have the money for Dec. I never worry about Christmas because the money is there.

    I think for the first 10 weeks, I'll transfer $10. $1, $2, $3 seem like too little. That'll just give me more in the end so to speak. I did my first transfer to my savings account today for this week. Yay! Can't wait to have a cushy amount of money set aside.

    I seen this elsewhere on the net and printed it off. We are definitely going to do it. I'm going to see if dd wants to do it and I plan on taking it to our church to see if others are willing to give it a try. It's a great way to save.

    I think this would be great to start in October or November, though I'm not against saving anytime of the year.

    This would give me the final payoff just before the holiday seasons and I can go bigger on Thanksgiving. It also then lets the smaller increments (weeks 1-8) be saved during November and December.

    I'm doing this and challenged my Facebook friends. I also made an Excel spreadsheet to help track my progress and total should I decide to put more or less in any given week. I'm starting backwards though with $52 being my first deposit.
