On Instagram, we recently asked you what was the 1st goal you saved for. Whatever your dreams are: buying a house, welcoming a baby, investing in the last laptop, we could all use extra cash to realize them.
Want to know how to spare €1378 by the end of the year? Keep reading!
Of course, €1378 won’t appear by magic on your bank account (unfortunately), it demands a little bit of organization ahead, let’s see how it’s done!
The 52 weeks challenge
But what is the 52 weeks challenge? That is the method that will help you save without even realizing it. The principle is very simple: for every week that passes by, put aside the amount of money designated by this week.
Still not visualizing it? That’s ok!
On Week 1, you will put €1 on the side
On Week 22, you will put €22 on the side
On Week 50, you will put €50 on the side
Etc. until the end of the year.
Seems easy? It is! Until those weeks 48, 49, 50 and 51 come up.
How do you hack this challenge?
At bunq, we like to think out of the box, so here are a few tips that will help you to nail this challenge:
Start whenever you will need the money for 52 weeks later: maybe you don’t celebrate Christmas so you won’t need it by the end of the year. But maybe you are planning to travel around the world in June 2021? No problem! Start in June 2020, so you’ve got your €1378 all ready for the big day!
Don’t follow the weeks’ number: make a list of the numbers from 1 to 52 and put on the side what you can when you can. It is not easy to save €48, €49, €50, and €51 in December. Maybe it is easier for you to do so in May? Then do!
