How to Save Money: the Challenge

Since the best things in life are the simple things, this savings challenge was designed with simplicity in mind. No sense in overcomplicating life — life is complicated enough as it is!

It goes like this: each and every week both of you will put $10 into a savings jar, envelope, coffee can, or savings account (or under your mattress, whatever works for you).

Working together, you’ll accumulate $20 each week. After six short months, you’ll have saved $520. And if you stick it out for the whole year? You’ll save over $1,000!

See? Easy, right?

Like I said – there’s no sense in making things more complicated than they need to be. But – please! – don’t discount the effectiveness of this savings plan just because it seems “too easy” or “too good to be true.” I assure you it works.

Let’s get started!
