The Money Challenge

Money Challenge

I’ve been keeping up with my challenges lately. I checked out a book from the library of personal picture hanging. I’ve been working my behind off at my new school trying to get ready. Wow! I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Who knew it would take 2 hours just to finish a bulletin board? Here’s a picture to show my handiwork. I did two more this size and one gigantic one across the back of my classroom.

As for reading the Bible, I’ve been a little lax on that count. I definitely need to be more faithful.

As I was going over my goals AGAIN, I came across this great pin on pinterest. It’s called the money challenge and what it amounts to is saving a dollar and then adding another dollar every week for 52 weeks (1 year). Basically day 1 is 1 dollar and week 52 is 52 dollars. At the end you end up with 1,378 dollars! This was very appealing to me because, well, who can’t use 1378 dollars? So I thought, “Why couldn’t I do this challenge, but challenge myself to beat it?” So I created myself a little spread sheet and plan to start August 1st. Here’s a copy if you’d like it. Just click on the picture.

So, anyway, I thought that I would try to save as much money as the new year, namely, 2,014 dollars.  I figure if I just add a little bit extra every time, it shouldn’t be that hard.  I know.  You’re wondering, “How much does that amount to extra per week?  Well, I did the math–about 12 dollars extra per week.  I may not make it, but I figure even if I don’t, I’ll be better off than I am now.  Wish me luck!  And here’s some luck for you if you decide to join me!
