The Money Jar

weekly money challenge

The other day I saw this chart floating around on Facebook and decided it was actually a really good idea.

It is basically a simple guide to saving money this year.

There are 52 weeks in a year. One a week, you put the amount of money, corresponding to what week of the year it is, in a jar. At the end of the year, you’ll have $1,378.

I decided to start a money jar as a vacation fund.

Last week I pilfered a dollar from Captain Cavedweller and put it in the jar. This week we’ll add $2, next week we’ll add $3 and so on.

This seems like a painless (and kind of fun) way to save some extra money this year.

Do you have any fun methods you use of socking away a little extra money? Feel free to share your ideas!
