This week the challenge is to save…. $37
How did you do last week with saving $22? You should have an extra $505 in savings now.
Here are some tips to help you save this money:
- If you only need a couple items in a store, carry a basket instead of pushing a shopping cart. If you can’t carry it, you’ll think twice about using it.
- Buy your produce when it is in season, not just because it is your favorite fruit/vegetable. Eating in season can save you a lot of money.
- Make sure you return your cans and bottles for deposit. It might seem like a lot of work to keep up with them, but if you make it part of your weekly routine you’ll be more likely to accomplish it.

Are you up for a Money Saving Challenge? You’ve probably heard of the 52 week money saving challenge and I thought it would be fun for us to do it together! I wanted to change things up though and instead of us saving in typical order, I have devised a way for us to save $1397 over the next 52 weeks while making it creative and fun! We won’t be going in numerical order and I replaced the $1-$9 amounts with $10 (so 10 weeks we will save $10).
Before you get started with the challenge, you need to make sure your family is on a budget. You can use my FREE Budget Binder to help get control of your finances. The goal for the money saving challenge is that the money will come from your weekly allowances and not from your overall budget. So you’ll save the money by saving more at the grocery store, not dining out, using less gas, avoiding spending money on miscellaneous items, etc.
You’ll deposit the money into your fund. In 52 weeks, you’ll be $1397 closer to your goal just by doing this challenge! You’ll continue to save money in other ways too. For a trip to Disney World, you’ll need to save about $3000 (aiming for at least a 5 night trip, maybe longer!). My goal is to help you do that in 18 months. If you do this challenge for the next 18 months, you’ll have $2095.50 saved by October 5th, 2016. You’ll just need to save $904.50 from other creative ways! That means you could visit Walt Disney World during the holiday season in 2016 and if you can get off during the first 2 weeks of December, you’ll pay some of the lowest prices of the year.
