    52 Week Money Challenge

    52 Week Money Challenge 19th Aug 13 at 6:59 AM
    Ok so I saw this on Facebook but in dollars, but it looked interesting and I am always up for a challenge!

    It is to save money over 52 weeks (a year)

    I have tried adding the table to this post but have failed so far...
    but it is pretty simple.
    Week 1 save 1 then every week add the same amount of s that add up to the number of weeks you have been doing the challenge.
    For example: Week 1 1
    Week 2 2
    Week 5 5
    Week 52 52

    In total you can accumulate 1378 so I think it is really worth it

    Yeah, if it works out then great, but even if it only works for a short time, maybe half of it, you can start it all over again. I am going to try complete it, and if it works out then I will do the same again the year after. I will keep upto date on here and in my signature ]
    Good luck!!

    Just think, if you were disciplined enough and doubled that amount each year over five then, you'd have an impressive figure of over 42k

    Great idea,

    I'm not sure I'll be able to make the target in some of the later months but even if I saved less for those weeks it'd be worth it.

    Please could I join you all?
