    It seems like you'd have to make a pretty decent income to pull off $100 in a week (by the later weeks.) I like the idea, but it'd be really hard for me. I seem to pull off $50/$75 (high end if I'm lucky w/ hours) every two weeks.

    I don't make enough money to do this challenge. I work part-time and only bring home about $350 after taxes every 2 weeks. However, it has given me an idea.

    You could always cut the amount in half! You save less but you are saving none the less.

    Wait, unless I'm reading this wrong, you only save once a week and you only put in the amount of the week. So if it's week 10 you deposit $10. So the most you will deposit at one time is $52.00.

    I think you may have read the chart incorrectly. The week equals the dollar amount you deposit. So the highest amount is $52.

    I started doing this on top of our regular savings. I also do the $5 bill savings plan, which is good/bad when I use a $20 and get 3 $5s back. I read that some people do the 52-week plan backwards to avoid the extra $200 at christmas time.

    Ya the most is $52. That's a good plan. Food for thought.
