One of my goals of the year, was to be a bit better with my money by spending less and saving more.
If you've heard of the 52 Week Saving Challenge before, then you might have even tried this yourself! If you're unfamialir, the idea is that each week you save an amount that corresponds to the week of the year. So the 5th week you'd save £5, week 26 you save £26 and so on, until you have £1378 by the end of the year.
I had tried this last year, and got to about 11 weeks before I gave in as I done it all wrong in how I approached it.
The main way is to do it as above, but I know that come December, saving £49-£52 over the last 4 weeks of the year (and at Christmas), would be too hard. So instead, I'm going to save a random amount each week, so I can then knock some of the larger amounts out of the way now, and work down to the lower amounts through the year.
So that's what my plan is anyway!
I also wanted to give myself some encouragement in the form of stickers - which are from The Sticker Party's store on etsy! I know these are in dollars, but it's the same amounts, so ignore that! I love using stickers, and thought I could put each denomination into my bullet journal as each week goes so I can keep track of which amounts have been done.
As you can see, I've actually done 5 weeks straight from the off, even though this is only the 4th week of the year! I just wanted to go a little further ahead so I could try and finish this a week earlier!
I've gone straight in and done the four highest amounts, and then chucked a random low one in, just to bump up the current total a little bit more. I'm planning on putting each amount away into a saving account each Friday, so will do a check in post on the totals as I go, throughout the year ahead.
I'll even do a little tracker below of the total and how much is left, in case anyone is interested!
Week 5 Total: £210
Amount To Go: £1168
At the moment, I've not got any immediate plans for the money, but after Florida this year, I have a feeling this savings pot will come in handy!
Have you tried the 52 weeks saving challenge before? How far did you get, and how did you find it? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
