In short, if you entered the challenge, you had to prepare two small boxes or jars. In the first one, you put a dollar every day, and in the second one you put 1$ at the beginning of the first week, 2$ for the second week, 3$ for the third, and so on.
I figured I could try it, thinking I would probably do it for a while, and eventually just forget to add money in my two Mason jars and call it a quit.
But I didn’t.
I also added a third jar, for loose change I dropped in every now and then. Altogether, I save quite a lot of money over the last year, and I am starting to wonder what I will do with it. Sure, I could just put it in my bank account, but I’d like to use it for something special. I did save it patiently, day by day, after all.
The obvious choice would be to plan a new trip to Vikingland. It is very tempting. I could also help people who need it more than I do… I just don’t know.
Do you have any idea? What would you do with an extra, little more than 1500$ to spend? Would you try the Saving Challenge in 2019, even if you had to do it on a smaller scale?
I’ll probably start it over on January 1st. I know I am lucky to be able to do it, but I did work hard to get there. And it is a fun way to save money!
Thanks for the idea, dear Stella!!
