Who wants to save $10 a week with me?

Post by gaylejackson2 » Thu Feb 09, 2017 3:03 pm

Does anyone want to save $10 a week with me? Or an equal amount in non-USA countries.

I've begun to make my saving $10/week from my weekly grocery money, A) to challenge myself that I CAN DO IT, B) to have some spending money for my Spring 2018 trip to Italy, and C) Because it has started to become a game that I'm playing with myself.

So is anyone up in? :)

I'm in, and will do my best to keep this thread updated as my progress. Savings for me will be the result of shopping-based items, so this should be fun!

I'm going shopping later today and with any luck will be able to post my savings related to that, so talk soon! :)

Gayle, I will join in, but I save every two weeks. I get my allowance every two weeks, so I hope that is okay.

This past two week period I managed to put away $15.00 in bills and I still have my change to empty out. I am pretty sure I will have at least $20.00 by the time I am done.

Managed to save $21.85 from my allowance. I am hoping to save about the same out of this two weeks allowance.

At the end of the month I put $64.00 in my envelope and jars. I get $50.00 a week so really did not spend much at all from the 15th to 28th.

I haven't been posting here lately, but I have been saving my $10 per week plus any extra left over. Last week, I put $26 into my "extra $$" box, plus my usual $10 into the envelope.
