You’ve probably seen this before but it’s a fun challenge and a great way to see the snowball effect of saving.
Here’s how it works. For every week of the year you put the equivalent dollar amount in.
Week 1: $1
Week 2: $2
Week 3: $3
etc. etc. etc. etc. etc……for all 52 weeks.
By the end of the year you’ll have an extra $1,378.00!!!
You can always hack this and change the $ amount per week. $2, $3, $100?
Here’s a spreadsheet to play with if you want to keep track of your weeks or if you feel like changing the numbers.
