It may seem like a really big task. It doesn’t have to be. Look through the list and tackle what you can that week. Don’t have the amount listed that week to save? Then put in what you have and start new the following week. Having a really bad month with expenses? We all do, don’t feel bad about it and don’t give up. Simply save $1.00 and start all over again. You may not hit your goal of over $1300 but whatever you save is money you didn’t have to begin with. It can be there for emergencies, for expenses, to purchase gifts or to take the family on vacation. It doesn’t really matter what the reason is for having a savings. What is important is that you try your very best – no matter how much it is – to have a savings.
