Looking for a new way to save over $1000 this week with this 52 Week Money Saving Challenge. This weekly money saving challenge can be changed into a biweekly money saving challenge if that works better for you. Download the free 52 week money saving challenge printable. Thank you to P&G for sponsoring this post.
Last month I shared how we achieved one of our biggest goals being debt free in my post Good Ways to Save Money. It was one of my post popular posts and I have gotten so many questions about people can start. I thought one of the best ways is to start is with this 52 week money saving challenge. I even created a 52 week money saving challenge printable that you can download the 52 Week Money Challenge.
52 Week Money Saving Challenge
What is the 52 Week Money Saving Challenge?
If you are working on your savings goal, having an emergency fund is really important. Unexpected bills come up all the time. Experts recommend having savings of 6 months, but if you are just starting out on the path 6 months may seem overwhelming.
Personally, I found that creating a small goal is easy to start. Creating an emergency fund this year could be as simple as saving $20/week. Once you realize how easy it is to save just $20 a week you can set a long term saving goal based on the same idea. If you invest $20 every week for 20 years at a 7% return, it will be worth $45,334.96.
