It's that time of year again. I am starting to see the 52-week savings challenge posts all over social media and I would like to take this opportunity to dig back into the archives for this post, which I wrote in 2013, cautioning against setting yourself up for failure. (It also contains some tips for other ways to get money to save.)
Remember, saving money is a good thing! Even if you don't meet the weekly amounts outlined (or run it backwards, which I saw in different blogger's post --- perhaps worth a try!), any money you sock away for a rainy day is worth saving.
For us this coming year, we plan to bump up our autodraft to savings just a nudge and see how that goes. Find that sweet spot and save what you can comfortably afford.
