The 52 Week Money Saving Challenge - Week #45

Welcome to Week #45 of The 52 Week Money Saving Challenge.  This week we save forty-five dollars. Our total saved to date is one thousand and thirty-five dollars.  New milestone: over one thousand dollars saved!!

Only seven weeks left in our Challenge year and the countdown continues!    
If you are new to the challenge, welcome aboard!  Jump in and save the weekly amounts with us. You'll have about four hundred dollars saved by the end of this year.  Alternatively, you can begin this week as your Week #1.  Save one dollar this week, two dollars next week, etc.  Whichever works best for you is great.

Whether you're starting now or you've been saving with us from the beginning, please let me hear from you. I'd like some feedback about your own experience with The 52 Week Money Saving Challenge.  What worked best for you?  What advice would you give others?  Any ideas for improvements?  How has it helped you? What have you learned? The Suggestion Box is open.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy saving! 


  1. Ah I get it now. This is awesome! Is it hard to put aside that much money every week? You know, when it gets to the higher numbers?

    1. Hey Lydia,

      Another excellent question. For me, it was easier to start small and gradually work my way up the ladder. One dollar was EASY. Pretty much all of January and February and March were easy for me. If I hadn't started small, it would've been very hard to save the bigger amounts each week. But, starting small and working my way up slowly made the bigger amounts easier because my finances were accustomed to saving each week already.
