I am taking this challenge. I am stoked to start and take on this cool way on saving money. It's not that I have a hard time saving money, if you read my previous posts, you would pretty much conclude that I am "addicted to saving".
I have a hard time spending on my few wants. I kind of live a pretty miserable life. I still even drag myself to that $3 dollar "cheat meal" every month. Yup, that's how kuripot I am! I want to change this habit of mine. Hey, I am saving 80-90 percent of my income and I deserve to reward myself with small wants but I.JUST.CAN'T.
So, I am taking this challenge. This is a fund I can spend without feeling guilty. This is a fund I can spend for myself no matter what I buy and not think about it or list it on my Daily Money Log. This is a "ME" fund!
To read more about this, click here. The idea of this challenge is to start saving $1 for Week 1, $2 for Week 2, $3 Week 3, $4 for Week 4 and so on, At the end of the 52 weeks, I will have $1,378!!! I am doing the challenge in dollars coz I am earning in dollars but for my Filipino friends, you can certainly do it in peso. What if you start at PHP 10, at the end of the 52 weeks, you will have PHP 13,780. Cool, right? You can download a Do Your Best Challenge chart found at that website or you can write it down, just like what I did:

Since I just started, I have a dollar inside and crash out the First Week of the challenge.
