So I procrastinated...a bit. But instead of just not making my post like I normally would do, I decided better late than never!.
This year marks the start of several new themes, and here is the first one. Every other Thursday here at Twenty-Five Plus will now be Thrifty Thursday. A day to post ideas on saving money here and there and making a more efficient and profitable home.
This week I'd like to talk about small savings goals. This last Christmas season I found myself scrounging for extra cash to purchase Christmas presents. As is the case every year, the holidays just kind of snuck up on me. So this year I will be prepared. I stumbled across this savings goal over at Life as You Live It and decided this year would be a great one to give it a whirl.
52 Week Savings Challenge
For every week of the year, you deposit the corresponding dollar amount into a jar. Then, after 52 weeks you have saved $1,378 - plenty enough to get Christmas shopping done for all your friends and family! So go ahead - give it a try, what's a couple dollars a week?
