52 Week Money Challenge


52 WEEK MONEY CHALLENGEWe all know it is hard sometimes to save money, but when I ran across this idea, I had to share it.  It is a 52 Week Money Challenge and since 2014, a new year is quickly approaching, this is the perfect time to start this!

Here’s how it works:  Week one, you put $1 away.  Your account balance is now $1.  Week two, you put $2 away, your account balance is now $3.  With each new week that arrives, you put that dollar amount away and your account balance increases.  At the end of 52 weeks, you will have saved a total of $1,378!  You could use this money for Christmas, or to pay off some bills, but whatever you want to use it for, it will for sure come in handy!

I have been MIA for the last week or so, I don’t really have a good explanation as to my absence , however, Daughter #1 has moved into her own apartment, Daughter #2 has been cutting a couple of classes and Daughter #3 has joined the school basketball team, work has been busy and Christmas is just around the corner annndd Bentley Baby is visiting again.

I am also someone whom Daughter #3 has called “not very festive”…… I am festive at this time of year at least I try to be.  The last few years I have lost my Christmas spirit and I guess the “festive mask” I put on she can see right through.

I used to love Christmas and now I just like it.  Christmas for me has just too many memories and, well, I guess I get a little melancholy at this time of year.  I thought I hid it well.


I haven’t seen my #1 son in quite a while, and I miss him.

wah wah wah.  I know, I know Angies Grapevine is a happy place to visit, it still is ,look
