Make Money Saving Into a Game


What if you could just wake up tomorrow morning and know that you had extra money saved? 


That money could be for a special occasion, for your emergency savings, or just something fun that you like to do.


I know that saving money isn't always an easy task for everyone. I'll admit that it didn't used to be easy for me.


Plus there are times when you just can't set up those automatic transfers to your savings accounts like so many of the money gurus out there say to do. 


You can set up those automatic transfers, but then you'd still end up transferring the money right back into your checking account, because the money is needed in your checking account. 


There are tons of ways that you can actually go out and save money. But there is a difference between saving money on the things you usually spend on all day, every day versus saving some cold hard cash in your bank account.


So to help myself combat this issue, I created a money saving game. I made one of these charts that you see below and every time I was able to transfer an amount of money from one of the boxes into my savings account, I simply put an X through the box, which is so easy to do from my phone. 

Saving Money a Game Changes Things


When you play a game with yourself, it makes it so much easier to save money.


You don't ever want to lose the game by missing a week of transferring money. It's just so much more fun when it's a game.


And with this game, you can pick the amount of money you want to save, based on the charts below, and spend a year (or maybe even less!) saving that money for yourself.


Last year, I shared the first chart for $1,250. And today I am sharing 5 more charts for a total of 6 different charts. Simply pick the chart that works for your goals. There are total of 55 boxes with numbers in each chart. Every time you transfer the money to your savings, just cross off the box.
