100 dollar richer month

This is part of our weekly Money Challenge series.
Be sure to check off any you’ve missed!

Onto round III of our $100 Richer Month mini-challenges! In week I, we asked you to throw an extra $25 into your investments, then in week II we challenged you to pay off an extra $25 of debt. Now for week III, we tackle another pillar of personal finances: your *savings*.

Ready to go?

This week’s challenge: Save an extra $25 right now!

Here are 3 quick ways to do so:

  • Transfer $25 directly into your savings account
  • Look for spare change/cash around your house or in your couches or in your cars
  • Sign up for a savings app and have robots do it all for you (we like Digit, Qapital, and Tip Yourself)

For bonus points, make this $25/week recurring!

Give us a quick “I’m in!” if you accept the challenge.

    I’m in.

    As a bonus, this $25 brought my emergency fund to exactly one month’s expenses.

    I’m in! Happy to report that last week I pumped $25 into my Acorns account. It’s not much, but it’s got me into investing. :)

    Doing the savings challenge now! :)
