52 Week Savings Challenge

One of my goals each year is to save money. Except I’m not very good in this department and usually by February I’ve stopped adding to my savings and started using what money is there.  I’m hoping this simple 52 week Savings Challenge will help me stay on track in 2017. Are you with me?

52 Week Savings Challenge

In case you’ve never heard of the 52 Week Money Savings Challenge, I will give you a quick overview. Basically each week you are to set aside money in an envelope, safe, bank or wherever you stash your savings.  You start by saving $1 the first week, $2 the second week, and so on. By the end of 52 weeks (one year) you will have saved $1,378.00!!! Can you imagine having that much extra money by this time next year?

For me, the best part of this challenge is that you start small and work your way up to the largest amount, which is only $52 and that’s really not that much at all! In the end, you will have an extra $1,378 that you can add to your emergency or vacation fund, deposit into a college savings account or even pay for next years Christmas gifts.

I was telling a friend of mine about the challenge and she mentioned that it would be fun to work backward and add $52 the first week, $51 the second week, and so on getting less each week instead of more. So I made a reverse version of the challenge to share with you too in case you wanted to give it a go.

Lately, I’ve had many requests for half-size versions of past printables, so you will find both of these challenges in a large (8.5″ x 11″) and a small size (5.5″ x 8.5″).

  1. What a great idea ! I’m in (but with euros since I live in France) ! Thanks for the printable, it will help keeping tracks

    • That’s awesome Jen! I love your idea of starting with the $52 so it less each week and to end in November for all the great sales! Maybe I will play catch up so mine will end in time too. Thanks so much!!!

    • I always start with the best of intentions but never make it to the end of the year either. Hopefully, this will be the year!

  2. Good morning Maria!

    I decided to do the “$5.00” savings challenge for 2017. Each time I receive a $5.00 as change, I’m stashing it! Already, my savings if $65.00 and it’s only the 1st full week of February! Have a great day <3

    • That’s awesome Beth! I used to do that with singles and I still do it with my change but I never been brave enough to save all my $5’s haha. Good luck and buy yourself something great!!! xoxo
