Weekly Savings Plan- Saving for the Holiday Season

Well around last year at Christmas time, I was laid off from my job, as any other holiday, money was tight, but now it was even tighter.  Well I saw this thing on Pinterest that people kept pinning about you say so much per week and stash it away and you’ll have $1,378 by the end of the 52 weeks.

Let me know how your liking it!! I also had some responses on my Facebook about this about people started in the middle of the year, so the bigger amounts weren’t coming out right before Christmas.  Or starting backwards and doing the bigger amounts now and lower ones later in the year.  Either way, still comes up to the same thing, SAVINGS!!
