52-Week Money Challenge

Easily Save $1,378 With the 52-Week Money Challenge

You've probably heard about the 52-week money challenge that has everyone talking. The concept is simple: you start with $1 in the first week, and then every week, you'll put away an extra dollar. To put this in perspective, you'll save $1 in the first week, $2 in the second, and $3 in week three. Keep doing this until you reach $52 in the 52nd week. Once you add up the total, you'll find yourself $1,378 richer in a year.

This may be a great savings plan for those who are new to saving or just plain intimidated, as it doesn't seem as overwhelming. Gradually over time, the amount you're saving increases, easing you into the idea of putting away more and more money the longer you do it.

We've seen different versions floating around the web, but we wanted to make our own, which includes checkboxes to motivate you more to stick with it till the end. You can download the pretty printable for our 52-week money challenge here. Just think: by this time next year, you'll have an extra $1,378 that you can use toward whatever your heart desires, be it a trip or more money in your emergency fund.
