I believe saving money is great.
Earning is better.When you do both, its best.
Saving and earning are two sides of your coin.If one or the other is missing in your personal finance plan, it’s not good.
3 Things I like about saving money with children:
They learn the value of money.It’s not easy to earn.
It’s fun when the family participates.It helps build up excitement.
Its easier to be frugal when no one cribs.
How to do the challenge?
Save 10 rupees the first week.
20 rupees 2nd week
30 rupees 3rd week
Increase the amount by 10 every week
At the end of 52 weeks, you have 13640 rupees!
This 52-week challenge started in 2013 through a Facebook group called “Kassondra’s 52-Week Money Challenge”. It was created by personal finance enthusiast Kassondra Perry-Moreland.
The 52 weeks helps make saving a habit for people who don’t like saving.It’s also good for budget planning.
If I don’t have that much amount to save every week ?
Since the greatest amount you have to keep aside is 520 rupees , I am sure you will do it.
But if you feel its difficult, just break it up by 7 days If you save roughly 75 rupees per day the last week then you are good to go!This might not look like a lot, but over time you can increase the amount and see your nest egg grow.
Money management is not taught in any school or college.Most of the world’s problem is because of too many expenses and too little money.
