2012 52 Week Challenge

Well this week I was suppose to take a break from blogging and work on getting ready to push this year forward.  In my world I ended up sick.  Being sick with small kids just don't go together at all!!!  So in between my coughing and sneezing and being incredibly cold. I still kept thinking about how positive and energetic I want this year to be. So I decided to share one of the things I'm doing this year. Last week I was on Facebook and Daenel from Living Outside The Stacks was talking about being part of a 52 week challenge about photography (You can click the link to find out more about it). Although it wasn't something I was interested in right now. Since I have other projects happening. I wanted to check out if there was a list of 52 challenges that I might find interesting.  Well I found one that kept coming up in the search. It's a 52 week financially challenge. You start off saving with a $1.00 and each week you keep adding to it. For example:

Week 1- $1.00
Week 2- $2.00
Week 3- $3.00 (You get the picture)

This was started by SparkWisdom on YouTube last year. I had became a subscriber this year by chance because she does give off such a positive energy. So I had committed myself to do this for 2012 on my own since that challenge was over.  Later that day she posted a new video talking about doing the challenge again for this year. This is the year (for me)of learning how to be financially stronger and saving is a big part of that.  I type a worksheet to keep me organize. The first video is when she explained it last year. The second video is her starting the challenge again this year. Just in case you will like to check it out.

At the end of this challenge I will have 1,378 to start the next year! Now I just need to find a cute box to put it in.
