    I like how you tweaked this Jeffrey!

    Love it! Great idea…

  3. This is a really neat idea! I like how you decide how much you can save each week as opposed to going in order and saving an extra dollar each week. We all have moments when money is tighter one week to the next and allowing for the flexibility to choose your savings amount increases the likelihood of people sticking to this plan.

  4. I like the change in this system, what a great concept Jeffrey!

  5. This is a really awesome new spin on helping people save money.

    Thanks Jeff – let’s try this out. We’re always looking for new ways to save money.

  7. I can see how the chart would make a difference if you are only able to start small. You’d see the reward and hopefully, it would encourage you to keep going.

    I messed up already with the 52 week challenge, but I’ll get back on track. I like how you related this to Yahtzee. I may try that out next year.

    What a convoluted complicated way to save!
    Simply know that every $10 you regularly save per week will net you $500 over the course of a year.
    Set up a regular savings program with your bank where money is redirected to your savings account before you get it.
    Try $30 a week ( $1500 a year ) If you don’t have it to begin with you won’t miss it.

    I was sent this on Facebook. What a neat idea! It is very much like a game. This is a feel good way of saving money. I doubled the original 52 week challenge and saved over $2500! This is definitely a fun way to save.

    I have tried this method for the first time last year, and it really works. You have to stay focused and committed to saving.
    There maybe a few things to cut out of your spending habits to achieve this, I myself had to cut out two trips to Starbucks I bought a bag of coffee beans to take my own coffee to work, and I began packing my own lunch I also stopped buying bottled water and started refilling and chilling my own water. the system works just need commitment.

    I did it last year, got up to over 400 and needed new tires. It came in handy for that. Happy holidays!
