Savings Plan

Now that we're well into the new year, are you thinking about saving?  Last year as we prepared for our trip to England we wanted to save some food and/or souvenir money.  I made this jar, and we saved $1 the first week and $2 the second week and $3 the third week...  We kept it up for 25 weeks, and at the end we had $325!  Some of the last few weeks I had to be kind of creative with the groceries (since that was where the money was coming from).  If you save for 25 weeks, the most that you have to save in one week is $25 - so it's a great short-term plan.  I may have to start it up again!
