It’s the beginning of a New Year, and one place many people focus on improving is their finances.

A popular challenge over the last few years has been the 52 week money challenge. The concept is pretty simple. Each week you save the dollar amount equal to the week it happens to be during the year. For example, in week one you need to put $1 aside. In week two, you put $2 aside. In week five you save $5 and in week fifty-two, your save $52. By the end of the year, if you succeed in saving each week, you will have amassed $1,378.00. Here is a printable chart you can use to track your progress.
