Did you see this image in your Facebook feed recently? It’s the brainchild of a Facebook group and I think it’s a brilliant idea.
I’m shocking at saving money. But seeing it set out like this over 52 weeks looks quite manageable to me.
But I think I’m going to tackle it in a different way. There may be some weeks that I might not have the amount required to put away as savings, so instead I’m just going to pick an amount that I can afford that week (you can see I have crossed off the $9.00. That’s all I had left in my account so I transferred it over to my savings account), transfer it into my savings account and cross it off my list – which is hanging in my “chick corner” in plain sight so I can see where I’m at.
I’ll cross off each amount as I go and (hopefully) by the end of the year, I’ll have a nice little amount saved up and I’m going to surprise my family with a little getaway over the Christmas break.
Does this method of saving look good to you? Are you a good saver or a better spender?
