Trying it Tuesday- Week by Week Saving

Happy Snowy Tuesday!  How many of you didn't have school or went home early due to school??  I did!  We had an early release day due to the snow and due to a very long commute I was able to leave extra early!  My principal was practically pushing me out the door!  I felt bad leaving extra early!  I always hate making things difficult for others because I live so far away!

Well, I am proud to say this is my fourth blog post in a row!!!!  I am on a roll!!  I am not sure if the streak will continue, but we can hope!  I am linking up with Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried It Tuesday linky party!  I am linking up with something I am still in the process of trying and will be updating throughout the year!

One of my goals for the year was to save more.  I am terrible with saving money and my current situation does not lend itself to save a lot of money, so I began researching some simple ways to save.  I came across a week by week savings plan.  You start out on the first week saving a dollar and add a dollar to the amount each week.  At the end of the year, you will have saved $1378!!!  I have saved through week three so far!  So far so good!  My biggest problem is not having the cash on hand.

Below is the chart of my savings plan, if you would like a copy of it just click on it!  I am hoping I can keep this goal through the year.  I will be updating throughout the year as to my progress and hopefully I will have saved over a thousand dollars by the end of the year!

  5. I love the idea of using it for Christmas - I'd seen this but never thought about using it for that!

  6. I'm this out as well! I've been doing a savings each pay day which is every two weeks - so I've taken the last and the first and paired them together and so on... we'll see how it goes :) I'm hoping for some vacay money or at least some vacay spending money!

    Good luck!!
