Liebster Award and Update On My Saving Challenge

Hi everybody! This is an update to my 52-Week Savings Challenge that I took last May 2. I did some tweaking to my challenge, I saved 20 pesos instead of 10 pesos. so I can double my money! Instead of saving 13780 pesos, I am saving 27560 pesos! That is big money.

The sum of the money i put on the jar from May 4-May 25 is 400 pesos. I am giving my self a pat on the back! When my savings reached  500 pesos I will open an account so I am not tempted to use my savings, out of sight, out of mind.I am really inspired to finish this challenge because I have a goal. Readers are asking if its doable, I say yes it is doable if you have the will and a goal to reach. Every challenge need a goal so you know where you are going. My goal here is to save enough money for me to start a small business for extra income. For 27,560 pesos I can start a Sari-Sari Store (small retail store), an eatery, or a burger stand buy 1 burger and take 1 burger free it's a huge hit here in the Philippines. Or i will buy some bonds if I can't start a business.

It's never too late for you to start earning. Saving money is really rewarding when you see how much self-control you have.
