Saving Money in 2014 - Pinterest Related

I saw this on Pinterest - a way to save $1,378 in one year that won't be too difficult to do....that is IF you stick with it. I started out doing this last year and somewhere along the way kind of forgot about it and stopped saving...So I am starting over this year. I made my own schedule because the one on Pinterest doesn't have dates and I think it helps me to keep track of it better if I have a date to go along with the week.

The dates below are every Monday in 2014 (I started on 12/30/13 since it was the closest Monday to Jan 1st).

The idea is, week one, you save $ 1.  Everyone can do that, right?  Week 2, you save $ 2 so by the end of week 2, you have $ 3.  So on and so forth.

By the time you get to week 52, you still only have to add $52 - that can be a lot to some people for one week, I suppose but that is the MOST you will have to put away at any given time.  If you do this throughout the year, you will have saved $1,378 by the end of the year.  Not too shabby.

I'm going to give it another go this year.  Wish me luck.

Pin It!
