For years now, I’ve been doing the 52 Week Money Saving challenge. I’ve been able to save $1378 each year to put towards something important or fun!
I love this weekly money saving challenge and I think you will too.
I’ve always been quite a good planner and saver but only when I’ve had a really good plan on how to save.
The 52 Week Money Challenge is perfect for that. I know exactly how much to save each week. Also, because I’m only saving a small amount each week, I don’t really ‘miss’ it coming out of my account.
How this Weekly Money Saving Plan Works
The premise is that for every week of the year, you put that Week Number dollar amount in a savings account or jar.
Of course, you can do this in your own currency if you’re not in Australia but you might have to adjust the amount.
You want to make sure that the amount you are saving is both manageable and worthwhile.
If you find it helps you budget better, you could reverse the weeks and save the larger amounts earlier in the year. That would be a reverse 52 week money challenge!

I also like to set a weekly reminder in my calendar to make sure I never miss my payment.

I hope my 52 Week Money Saving challenge printable helps you save!
I love this idea. I returning to study and this is a great way to put away money for holidays.
That’s a great incentive to do it :) I love knowing throughout the year I’m saving for something with such little effort :) x
This is the smartest idea I have come across. I am printing it now and starting today. This is the year I want to get serious about savings and focus on buying property after many years of being careless. This idea is amazingly simple. I won’t notice any of that money gone from my bank account.
It’s such a brilliant idea isn’t it – I love doing it every year :)
