Looking for a fun and motivating way to save some money? Take this daily money saving challenge!
You, of course, don’t have to make a bank deposit every day, the daily savings challenge is set up for you to make a deposit once a week for 52 weeks (an entire year).
How much do you save doing the 52 week challenge?
You’ll save $5 per day, which comes out to $1820 a year! Think of what you could do with an extra $1820!
You could put it towards something fun, pay bills (not so fun but necessary) or start an emergency fund with it.
$5 Daily Savings Challenge
Now you may be wondering, why $5?
If you set an unrealistic savings goal, you may never stick to it.
Some challenges have you saving over $100 a day, which is great for some people but not achievable for others.
Whatever your budget, $35 a week should be pretty doable. If you don’t think you have $35 to spare, take a look at your budget and see if there are any expenses you can cut.
Before getting started with your money challenge, be sure to read all the helpful tips and directions below.
I even created a free daily savings challenge printable for you to keep track of your deposits. (There’s a link after the tips.)

(By the way, if you don’t use Paypal, you can also redeem your earnings for all sorts of gift cards from places like Amazon, Target and Walmart.)
Set up an automatic transfer so you don’t forget to make your weekly deposit.
This makes it so much easier than worrying about making a transfer every week. You also won’t miss making a deposit because it is automatic.
Find new ways to save and budget your money.
One of the most common areas people bleed the most money is groceries. This may be the easiest way to find an extra $35 each week that will go towards this challenge.
Here are some of my best ways to save money on groceries (without coupons).
Also, this post from Dave Ramsey will give you a bunch of simple ways you can save as well.
Feel free to skip a week if you’re tight on money.
Maybe you really can’t spare $35 a week sometimes. That’s totally okay, just skip it and resume once you have more money to spare.
Don’t forget to check off your weekly deposit to keep track of your savings.
The $35 amount is already listed on your challenge printable, all you need to do is check the box!
Put your challenge somewhere you’ll see every day.
This will help you not forget about the challenge. Put it on the fridge, in your planner, bulletin board or anywhere visible.
Speaking of doing things daily, getting in the habit of saying money affirmations to yourself will make it easier for you to stay on track saving and making money.
It really helps with your mindset.
