I have talked about this before a bit, but thought it was high time I went into detail again. And also, I thought it was time I did it myself.

52 week money saving challengeIt is a pretty easy idea actually. In week 1, you save $1. How hard is that? In week 2, you save what you saved lat week, plus another $1. So, that’s $2. Every week you save what you saved last week, PLUS an extra dollar.

By the end of week 52, you will have $1,378 saved. {Probably not enough to change your life, but it is a good exercise in disciple.) Not hard, strict discipline, but just in doing the right things at the right time. In addition, I’ll be keeping my tim of money out in the open. I won’t necessarily be looking for a ‘teaching moment’ with our 13 year old, but if she is half observant, she’ll notice, and we may talk about it.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
