I know we all have different circumstances and financial challenges, however, I believe that gainfully employed adults should be capable of saving money. My cousin recently shared a "52 Week Money Challenge" and I wanted to share with everyone. It doesn't require more than $52 to ever be contributed in a week and is a great way to get your feet wet with savings. Consider this Saving Money 101. The chart is self-explanatory, but if followed throughout the year, you'd have saved $1,378! For anyone that's never saved, the idea of having 1378 at the end of the year is very exciting. You could easily treat yourself to a nice vacation (my first option... invest in experiences) or use the money to invest in your own business, etc... the options are endless! If you're feeling a bit more aggressive you can take this model and double the deposit amount up each week.
