    I saw this online and thought that this was great challenge. I have already deposited my $1.00 in my piggy bank. Let's see how far we can get on this 52 week money challenge. Anyone else want to join in?

    We can post when we have made our weekly deposit? Even if you can't deposit the entire amount as we get higher into the numbered weeks, you could possibly deposit a little something. Let's give it a try. :)

    That is a neat way of building a savings account.

    If my wife found out, I'm afraid she would take my dollars...

    Seriously, I never spend change. All change goes in the jar.
    Seldom spend a single $1.00 bill...those go in the pile. Mostly
    my wife turns that into her Christmas moneys.

    Watched my Dad save his dollar bills... and one day, he
    went out and bought Mom a brand new car with them.

    But anything you save...it adds up after a bit. Can't go wrong.

    I'm in. Just set up automatic transfer for the next 5 weeks. I have a habit of not transferring some of my paycheck money to my savings, so this will definitely help me keep up with that.
