                      Thanks! The moving dust is settling now. I'm really happy about the lower rent. And I can walk to work which is a bit unreal. Im still getting used to it after driving 30 minutes each way for so long.

                            This thread is getting repetitive so I have not posted in a while. But I have stuck with it each week for the past 5 weeks. Here's an update:

                            Week 37 = $33 saved
                            Week 38 = $32 saved

                              Saved $1200 on the 52 week challenge

                              I finally broke down and joined the forum....

                              I saved $50 every two weeks with a post I saw from a friend of mine. I did it by having an auto save to a different account within my bank, So I never saw the $50 leave the checking account, just went straight into the savings.

                              The first 2 months were hard because I noticed it, but after a while you start realizing that it is possible by just not buying things.

                              I also downloaded a money management book from the same place with a spreadsheet.

                              It is possible. I'll do it again but try and double my savings so I hope to have $2400 by the end of 2018 + $1200 = $3600 by end of the year. Get organized, get those bills in order and execute!

                              Good luck all!
