52 weeks and a Mason Jar Savings Plan

With planning a trip to Europe next summer I have been doing a lot of research on saving for travel. Many websites and travel blogs have given so many great ideas which I plan on doing. My first step in saving for travel is following a great idea I saw on Pinterest.

This plan is called the 52 week savings plan. Each week you save a certain amount of $ based on what number week you are on. Week # 1 is $1 , Week # 2 is $2 , Week # 3 is $3, and so on. At the end of the 52 weeks you will have saved $1,378.

In order to feel motivated, I bought a cheap mason jar and covered it in travel stickers that I bought at Michaels. This is where I have been saving my money each week. This is a quick and easy motivational project that makes saving money fun and reminds you what your saving it for!


Sounds easy right?  The hard part is leaving the money in the jar and not spending it!
