The best part of couponing is the extra money you will have in your grocery budget. My 2019 challenge to you is to start the 52-week saving plan with the year-end goal of $1378. This is a weekly savings plan managed from the money you saved from couponing.

Each week of the year represents the total amount of money that you will save. You will first need a tracker sheet; this will help you keep up with the week and the amount of money deposited.

The tracker sheet will need to have three columns: first column is for weeks 1 through 52; second column is for the amount of money deposited; and third column for the concurrent total. In week No. 1, you put in $1, week No. 2 put in $2, week No. 3 put in $3 and you’ll end in week 52 by putting $52 into your savings with a grand total of $1,378.

I have started the 52-week challenge on Wednesdays. I will keep you posted weekly through The Daily Times to provide you a brief reminder. As the weeks continue, you will see an increase in your weekly savings with the assistance of couponing throughout the year. At the end of the year, you will have saved a considerable amount money totaling $1378. Again this is possible with the money saved while couponing. Below is the official start of your savings tracker. Take the challenge!

Remember, as you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money saving plan. This is the third week of the year. Place $3 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $6 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
