Found this online today, seems pretty simple and Im going to give it a go!
Week 1 $1
Week 2 $2
Week 3 $3
In the end you should have roughly $1378 in the account, plus interest if you use a high rate savings account!

If I was doing it, I would go backwards to get higher interest (but then if doing that you may as well save the higher amount continually)

I saw that too. It is a great idea, and very achievable too

$26.50 a week will get you to the same principle amount and will earn you higher interest along the way.

I think the idea is to work upwards so you don't 'feel' the first few payments and give up.
If you can save $52 / week, why wouldn't you just keep it as $52 per week?

yeah great for those who can afford to put away the high scale payments.

I'm going to do this too. I'm a crap saver and hopefully this will help get me started!

You would save a bit more since theres a calculation error in week 49.
I would try it but we are set to save $100 a week to put towards a bigger car.
Another way to help start saving is to transfer what is left in your account the day before pay day, even if its a dollar.

We brought one of those money tins that you need a can opener to open and every day my husband and I put $2 in the tin. It might not seem like much but at the end of the year we have $1460. Since having kids I have become a terrible saver so this method has worked really well for me as I don't miss the $2 and once it's in the tin it's out of sight, out of mind. Then when the tin gets full we bank it.
