The Easiest 1 Year Saving Plan

If your savings goals fell short of what you wanted last year, start off on the right foot on the very first day of the new year.  It’ll only cost you $1.  By the end of the year you could have saved $1,368!

Make the money saving process a little easier on yourself by saving the amount of dollars that correspond with the week of the year.  For example, this is the 5th week, so I’m going to put $5 into my savings account.  I will tell you that this method can hurt a little bit at Christmas.  This savings method is designed to ease you into the discipline of saving, but that leaves you giving around $50 every week in December (which is hard at Christmas).  My play to do the calendar in reverse, checking off from the bottom to the top… I can handle $5 per week come Christmas!

I’ve made a printout for you to keep track of your savings and to visualize how much money you can save ($1,368 starting this week).  I started my chart at week 5 in case you’re like me and you considered January your trial month.  If you don’t want to be behind, just put an extra $10 in your account to catch up.  See you didn’t miss much in January!

      Great idea… however total end of year should be $1373. Note that week 4, the balance should be $10, week 5, the balance should be $15, week 6, the balance should be $21, etc.
