The 365 Day 1p Challenge 2024



  • I don't understand how to do the 1p challenge. Do we put the money daily into an account?? Help!
    If you read the information on this you can either physically put the money in a pot or save online. Download the sheet with all the workings out in it and tick each day. 
  • I use a slightly different 'saving challenge', but I believe I also got it from ML some years ago.

    Let's call it "£1 Monday, £2 Tuesday..." etc. Each week, from January 1, I save £1 on Mondays, £2 on Tuesdays etc, through to £7 on Sundays. The mathematicians among you will quickly see that's £28 every week! 28×52 weeks a year = £1456... but 7 (days) × 52 weeks is only 364 days, so add another £1 to £7, depending which day the year starts and ends on. 2024 being a Leap year, you get an 'extra' extra day, too!
