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.
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??
