    MoneyFox,

    Just go ahead and get started. Challenges like this help you build good habits.

    I'm debating whether to give it a go or not. I'm currently living in Israel, and the currency isn't worth as much - 1 shekel is 27 cents according to Google

    I'm thinking about doing it x5, so I'll save from 1x5=5 shekel to 52x5=260 shekel a week... will this complicate things unnecessarily? Also, I get paid once a month, so putting aside money once a week is a bit... impractical? I like the idea though!

    Maybe I'll do it with months rather than weeks? I'd have to figure out a reasonable chart for myself... what do you think?

    There's a few of us that are actively doing it. I'm just starting my 2nd year and I met my goal last year.

    I am!

    I initially planned on starting it to put the money towards a decent purchase that could also be considered an investment. but Since I had to break into my emergency fund I am now using this challenge to help re-stock my emergency fund

    How many are still doing this for 2016? I can't believe I never noticed this thread before.

    I printed out the sheets and I'm starting this week.

    I'm totally keen to try this! I just used up my emergency fund to pay down a credit card. I figured it was sat there and when I got hit for $98 of interest last month it made sense to use the $930 I had saved to pay it off. Will have to work to get it back now!

My goal is to start at $52 and work backwards if possible, or as another poster said elsewhere, treat each deposit goal as the minimum and of course contribute more if I can.

    This is also my first ever post here! I've been a lurker for a very long time and love the advice given here so I finally decided to come out of the shadow and join!

    I'm in

    I've already started a 52 week challenge but think I'll add the SA one to the mix. The funds for this can be used for my 2016 vacations
