Hi All,

The past 3 weeks I have put aside the last 3 weeks amounts so I have saved $159 so far.

My kids (ages 9 and 5) are saving 10 cent/week and they have saved $2.10 so far.

I couldn't convince anyone else to do this with me.  I am making a list of those that are saying it's 'dumb' so that I can show them my wad of cash at the end of 52 weeks.  LOL

 I really need to do that and I am going to do this.  I hope I have good willpower.

i've got mine put in my account. I started first working from reverse, but decided to save $53 each week to complete the challenge in 6 months. This portion is going into my savings account. I also have a stash that I'm working in the way that the chart is going so I have the $21 saved for that.

A little more than where we "should" be since I put a small refund into the till as well.  Had to verify that I wasn't supposed to pay for my Depo shot per my insurance paperwork, so that will also be a refund coming my way and I'll probably put most, if not all of that into the till (we're talking over $100!).

I did break our spending freeze last night because the week has been exxtremely stressful with our ASD son having meltdowns which cause DHs blood pressure to spike dangerously high...I was NOT in the mood to cook at all....and I'm still at my wit's end with DS

I put mine in every Sunday so tomorrow will be $28. We have lots of change to, but I REALLY want to save it all up to fill the tin can (popcorn one thats tall). As of last count a few weeks back, it was just over $35 :)

I'm only on week 2 but I have $30 saved. I did $10 then $20 and Tuesday I will $40.

I'm thinking of going 10, 20, 40, 60, then starting over.
Now that I'm getting a steady pay check that covers the bills we can save some of dhs unemployment every week. We will also be paying off my car next week and have agreed that the $140 payment will still be a "bill" but goes in to savings!
