Hooray for Friday! This is a reminder to make your 52 Week Savings Challenge deposit. Can you believe it is already week 10?
The idea behind this plan is that by saving a little amount each and every week, you will end up with $1378 at the end of the year. This money can be used for any purpose that you wish – the main overall goal is that we are saving money. Saving can be hard, and unless you stick to a plan it is easy to fall off the saving wagon.
This week is #10, so you need to deposit $10. Or, if you are working backwards you need to deposit $43.
We used our $1378 to pay for holiday expenses and it worked perfectly! We are 100% committed to this plan again, and we are going to encourage you to join in the plan as well. Every Friday we’ll remind you to make your 52 Week Saving Challenge deposit. You can access a handy spreadsheet to show how the account balance will grow: 52 Week Money Challenge Spreadsheet
Here are some things to remember about the challenge:
You can do this, and take it from us that it feels really, really good to see that bank balance grow!

Holy cats Batman! Check out the deal we spotted at our Kroger store (on Euclid in Bay City, for you local shoppers) – a Manager Special on Uber bars, Larabar and ALT bars!
They were all marked down to $0.49 each, and they were not outdated or close to expiring. The Uber bars we picked up are good for months.
There have been various printable coupons out for these bars – so check your binder to see if you have printed them. We do not see any available right now.
There is a SavingStar coupon/cash back offer!
While at Kroger yesterday we happened to go down the bread aisle and this sale on Healthy Life bread caught our eye:
The half loaf of Healthy Life bread is on sale for $1 through 4/27/14.
Use the $0.35/1 coupon from a previous coupon insert
Final price: $0.65 or $0.30 if your store will double the coupon
This is a handy summary of the coupons that were released in the past 24 hours. If you missed any of them, just click to go right to the coupon and you will be able to print them each twice for extra savings. (Many coupons go pretty quickly, so we encourage you to print them while you can.)
