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.
