Money Challenge for 2013 – Week #3 – Have you started??

Total Saved to date: $6
Balance in ING Savings Account: $6

Last week I talked about saving money and using a system where you save one more dollar each week for an entire year. An interesting idea that requires you to save no more than $52 in one week. That seems manageable, doesn’t it?? That post started a discussion about the merits of the system and what method would be best to use to be successful.

Can you save $1 more each week for a year?

Can you save $1 more each week for a year? (souce: unknown)

Did you get started this week? It’s not too late. If you use the conventional method that is outlined in the challenge, you are still less than $10 to catch up. Remember that ING offers a great savings account that is easy to use to save for something like this.  It integrates with your existing bank account seamlessly.  If you open a new account with them (it will take $100 to get it open, but that could be Week #52 & #51 almost taken care of ) and use the “refer a friend” option, we can goth get a $25 bonus.  That’s one more week taken care of (Week #25), for both of us!!  Just use my Orange Key – 15735432S1.

Let me know how your efforts are going and please follow along on Twitter using the hashtag – #Saver13.  Tell me about what you’re saving for.  Tell how easy or difficult you’ve found this so far.

Next week, I am going to talk about the different methods people are using for this inititative and how they may or may not work.  I have had a lot of interesting feedback since this conversation started!!  Maybe we should all plan a group trip to celebrate our success at the end of the year!?!  What a great way to start 2014??  What do you think??
