A few years ago, I put together a 52 week savings challenge free printable. It’s a printable I like to revive this time every year.
Have you tried the challenge before? It’s a pretty easy way to save a bunch of money. Here’s what you do: Print out the printable below and keep it with your budget. Putting away a few dollars each week will help you save over $1,300 in 2017. You put away $1 this week, $2 next week (week two of the year), all the way until you get to $52 during week 52. That adds up to $1,378 at the end of the year, which is a nice chunk of change to have!
Just follow the schedule for your weekly savings goals. To print the schedule, just click on the image, save it to your computer, and print. You can print it in grayscale and fast draft, so you don’t use colored ink. Look at that. Saving more money already!
Drugstore Divas is filled with tons of ways to save money all year long. We’ve done posts like that since this blog started in 2009, and we will continue to do that into 2017. We are making a few changes though. I want to focus more on ways to life a frugal life rather than ways to get free toothpaste. It’s like dieting. You don’t want to diet, you want a lifestyle change. So this year, you’ll see less coupon alerts and more posts about meals you can cook at home so you’re not blowing money on take out.
I’m really excited about where 2017 is going to take Drugstore Divas, and I hope you are too!
