Remember last year when I shared the genius 52 week mason jar money challenge?
I loved that idea. I even started my own. Which lasted a few months …
until I started raiding the jar. To pay for all those morning before school expenses that pop up when you have kids. My daughter needed cash for a field trip. My son needed cash to put on his CTA card. And then there was the Spring break orchestra trip …
But I’ll be honest, I was concerned about the last 2-3 months of the challenge. When I would need to cough up $40 and $50 a week. During a time when money is tight.
So this year I thought I’d put together my own mason jar money challenge. One that I think I can keep up with. Dividing the contributions equally throughout the course of the year …
with a $20-A-Week Money Challenge. In a mason jar, of course.
And at the end of the year, you’ll have $1,040 to help pay for holiday presents. Or maybe a family vacation?
My plan is to just grab an extra ten dollars two times a week when I use my debit card at the grocery store. Or craft store.
I even created a $20-A-Week Money Challenge Table to check off and monitor my progress. A chart that I’m sharing with you too as a free printable.
I printed my schedule out on a full page mailing label sticker and just cut it out and stuck it on the jar. Weeks 1-26 on the front …
and weeks 27-52 on the back.

I hope you’ll join me in my mason jar money saving challenge!
