The year started rough. Financially our wallets were tight. I knew we needed to start making changes to our spending, saving and overall thinking about money. Simple changes were made such as less frequent eating out, weekly meal plans that produced more structured grocery shopping and reduced spending overall. There had to be more thought put into the things we were buying and bringing into the house.visa

Gone are the days of walking the mall and shopping for nothing important. Gone are my lazy days of “I don’t feel like making dinner”. I’ve realized that in order to contribute I had to change me. Another change we made was the 52 Week Challenge. So far it’s working out well. We even threw a few extra bucks in there if we’re cleaning out wallets and purses. We are still early in the year so $7 or $8 isn’t hard to part with but we are committed to put together a chunk of money for something fun at the end of the year.

Visa Prepaid has created the Build Your Best Year app instant win game on Facebook to help you keep you on track of your financial resolutions or create new ones while we are still early in the year. Every day you have a chance to win one of 35 great prizes!

    I think the 52 weeks thing is great! Ive done the same thing we eat out once or twice a month to cut down spending when we eat out with 5 people its practially triple the amount we would spend on a home cooked meal. Now if i could just get the meal planning down because i can never make my mind up

    • meal plan then shop or check circulars then meal plan and shop cheap. That’s definitely the better way to go to save money

  4. I am checking out this app. always needing to save!

  5. I love the 52 week challenge! I’m just nervous about trying to save such large amounts around the holidays!

    • i’m freaking out about that part too. It can be altered anyway you like though. Stick to the same dollar amount each week if increasing the amounts is too hard

Speak Your Mind
