Great $$$ saving challenge

I saw it on the Prudent Wife's FB page...I'm trying to copy the graph, but it's being silly.

You start the first week of the year and deposit $1.00...the 2nd week$2.00 and so on.  By the 52 week(end of the year) you've saved $1,378.00.

I'm going to give it a try.

 I've also heard to never spend a $5.00 bill.  Save it and watch the $$$ add up.

Never spend a $5...that would be a hard one for sure. lol Right now I am focusing on our vacation fund for this year. So I am trying my best to save and to stop spending.

 I would have trouble b/c I see a $5.00 as starbucks. :)

 I buy so much that when I am with dh I soften the blow a little bit and just buy a few at a time. lol He doesn't want to know what I spend on handspun. lol And I am getting a really great one in the mail any day now.
