52 Week Money Savings Challenge


You can print out the 52 Week Savings Challenge PDF HERE

So, I am sure you have seen so much hype about the 52 Week Money Savings Challenge all over social media. Some people have also modified it to save backwards where you start with week 52 socking away $52 and then taking away $1 each week so at the end of the year you only need a $1. Honestly either way works but only IF you stick with the plan. Many people lose their resolve to save and forget all about it.

I prefer to do it the way the plan was intended and I will tell you why. Many of us can easily save $1 to start with and then week 2 just $2 more saved. If you print out the sheet then you will see your savings growing weekly. This is called the snowball effect. Do something small and stick with it and before you know it, it’s grown into a substantial amount! It keeps you motivated to stick with it and you might decide to add even more each week! This is great not just for Christmas but maybe a Vacation fund or just to have an emergency fund. Life happens and so many times we aren’t prepared for a flat tire, or needing a new hot water heater or junior needs a new pair of eyeglasses. The best part of this plan is that by the last week, you will have saved $1,378.00!

Many people also question this is great but I don’t work or I can barely make ends meet now. I am showing people how they can make real and legit money by taking surveys, testing/reviewing products, and signing up for free items and entering giveaways. These survey sites below are all legit and real people are making real money to help pay for extras like a vacation or Birthday or Christmas gifts!

I signed up but I don’t qualify for anything? Make sure you are filling out your profiles in full and taking polls and pre-qualifying surveys. Sometimes these sites are looking for a certain demographic. I have lots of readers qualifying and earning money!

Frugal Tips & Tricks for Getting Your Backyard Ready for Summer Fun!


Frugal Tips & Tricks for Getting Your Backyard Ready for Summer Fun!

Summer is just about here which means is your backyard ready for summer fun? Just as we spring clean inside the house, we can often neglect the outside especially our backyard. That picture is of my brother’s yard and his wife does a wonderful job of maintaining it. It’s absolutely gorgeous with all the landscaping and her pool. She also uses many frugal tips to help get her yard and pool ready each summer for outdoor entertaining!

I was extremely fortunate to interview Sarah Saucedo from Thrifty Decor Chick Blog! She has amazing tips and I also have embedded a video of our phone interview below! She is such a sweetheart and she also has a gorgeous house with many of the projects that she did herself including her own backyard!

Sprucing up your outdoor space doesn’t have to break the bank. I have done very small things like nice outdoor planters with plants that need very little maintenance. Also, learn which plants are right for your area and if you have a certain amount of sun or shade. The front of my house gets lots of shade so I planted cast iron plants, holly ferns, and for color caladiums. Very easy to grow and they multiply. It’s pretty but I’m not out in the hot sun slaving away in my yard. I only have to do some pruning and dividing (cast iron plants will multiply) about twice a year.

Simple things can make a HUGE difference like spray paint or just cleaning! Watch this amazing video to learn more of her great tips!

Some of Sarah’s tips will include:

  • Maintain what you already have – find out how to keep your existing outdoor furniture looking fresh and new all season long, how to remove clutter effectively and maintain your area
  • Set the mood – décor doesn’t have to be expensive. Sarah will teach you how to use lighting and cheap table settings to up the festivity level
  • Let outdoor items perform double duty – use planters as food stations, buckets at fire places, and other creative fixes to maximize space and function
  • And much, much more!
