Manage Your Money

all of us have great goals for the new year.  Some of us will lose track of those goals rather quickly.  The number one goal in the new year is to lose weight.  but many of us need to get our budgets under control as well.  Saving money seems like an impossible goals when paying your day to day bills is a struggle. 

We all know that we need to save money.  We all know that saving money for the future is a goal we should have and that we should be doing it now.  But when push comes to shove, we fall short each month.  Here is a way to save in a very pain free way.  It is very small amounts that will add up to a significant amount at the end of the year.  I found this on Facebook and them looked it up on a website called All Things MW.  It is brilliant!  You save $1 for each week of the year.  So $1 the first week, $2 the second week, etc. and the highest amount you will deposit will be $52 the last week in December.  You will see in the chart that it adds up to a significant amount of savings for the year. 

Everybody on any budget can do this!  Please comment and let me know if you are doing this and how it works out for you and your family.  Maybe you double the amount or you already have savings and you use this chart to start a vacation account.  Whatever you do, let me know.  

Happy New Year, onward and upward in 2013!
