Or anything you have your mind set on. Better yet, put it in a bank account and keep the savings going!

I started this challenge in July and have actually stuck with it. I have up to $28 as of August, 18th. (Like I said, I just started). I also put some of my tips from work in there to help up the savings or to help out down the road.

$28 dollars of savings thus far!

Hardest Part:

Since everywhere I go I use my debit card I hardly ever have cash on me but then I got into a routine of stopping at the bank on Sunday and withdrawing about $20-40 for the upcoming week. (Not that I am spending it all).

Best Part:

Knowing that I am saving and it’s not as hard as I initially thought.

Start Monday, October 6th and let us know how it goes!

Best of luck with the challenge!
