I wrote a recent post about putting money aside each week for a year. Another version that I saw was instead of starting with $1 the first week, was to start with $52 and go down with the amounts each week. With this idea you have smaller amounts to save at the end of the year where you may have larger expenses with the holidays.
After posting this, I was thinking this idea could be used with various areas of your life along with finances. With it being the first of the year, most of us are thinking of aspects of our lives that we want to change. One of the easiest ways to accomplish larger goals is to break them down into smaller pieces. By taking one step a week may make it easier to accomplish some of the changes you want in your life.
If you search online you can find ideas or challenges pertaining to various topics such as organizing, reading challenges, cooking, photography, etc. There are blogs that feature challenges such as reading a book a week for 52 weeks or trying a new recipe or food each week.
