The 52 Week Money Saving Challenge - Week #18

Welcome to Week #18 of The 52 Week Money Saving Challenge.  This week we save eighteen dollars.  Our total savings to date is one hundred seventy-one dollars.  

Part of the fun of this challenge is dreaming about what to do with the savings when the challenge is completed.  What are you dreaming of?  My thoughts on the subject vary.  Sometimes I dream of from taking a little vacation. Other times I ponder re-starting the challenge next year or even doubling it.  By doubling it, I mean that the challenge would begin with two dollars saved the first week, four the second week, etc.  At the end of the challenge the total saved would be two thousand seven hundred and fifty-six dollars saved.  Maybe that is a bit too much.  What do you think? 

Here is a quote from Suze Orman's March 11, 2013 blog post entitled "Saving Money: Suze Orman’s Financial Advice For Baby Boomers":

Pushing yourself to save even a small amount is the smartest move you can make.
