Loving Your Finances?

On the day after Valentine’s Day – the day of love – I am wondering if you are loving your finances?

At the beginning of January, I accepted the 52 Week Money Challenge from a group of ladies in the Wealthy Sisters Network. I shared it on my Facebook page and many of my friends accepted it as well.

52 Week Money Challenge

On January 1, 2014, I started a simple Ziploc bag for each member of my family. Inside each bag, I placed a copy of the chart and the first amount to save – $1.00. Our progress has been perfect. We have added to the bags each week. My daughter especially likes to add to her bag. (She is 3 1/2 and has learned how to spell her name, so she knows which bag belongs to her.)

Now let’s say you did not hear about this challenge until now. Can you still get started? YES! I simply labeled my chart with the dates so we contribute at the right time. I also suggested to my friends that had extra Christmas money burning a hole in their pockets, if they wanted to start big, do the challenge in the reverse order and count down to the smaller amounts. Whichever way you approach the challenge, just do it. Some weeks you might have extra cash in your wallet because you took your lunch to work or did not stop in to that fast food joint for dinner. Add the extra cash to the bag and mark off the week that requires that amount. Got spare change in your car’s cup holder or your pockets? Start collecting it in a bowl at your house each evening. It adds up too, quicker than you think. You can convert it to bills or simply toss it in the bag for extra savings if you don’t want to count it now.

At the end of the 52 weeks, I am sure of two things: you will be glad you took the challenge and you will be $1,378 richer.

Now get started, love your finances and think of what you could do with $1,378 dollars that didn’t just slip out of your hands during the year.
Be intentional about where you money is going and make it useful to you.

Happy Saving in 2014!
