I ran across this plan via a friend’s Facebook feed: The 52 Week Save Money Challenge
I’m trying it out. It’s not a fast way of saving $1000, but it’s SIMPLE and EASY. I’ve spent too much time thinking and over-thinking about how to save money properly; I need to stop thinking and JUST. SAVE. MONEY. This plan requires next-to-no thinking, and for the most part, amounts of money that are too small to affect my cash flow much.
The tiny amount in my special savings account is kind of depressing, but it’s going to keep growing. Very, very slowly. At this rate, it will be November until I reach my goal. That seems like a long time away…but it will be here before I know it.
