Background on Save Age Challenge
I was speaking to a friend about their family struggles to save money. The thought of trying to squeeze one more dollar out to save was unthinkable. Reaching $50 a month to save was totally out of the question.
So, I posed the question, “Can you save your age?”
She said, “Of course, I can save my age?”
Wait a minute.
I thought you said saving $1-50 per month was unthinkable. But, now you are telling me that you can save your age in dollars?
That is when the Save Age Challenge formed.
Small steps to saving money.
It is all about perspective. For some reason, we correlate our age differently than we do typical dollar amounts. Regardless, it is a technique that works.
This is exactly how to save money with a challenge!

Understand the Save Age Challenge
Simple. Easy. Start.
Every week or month deposit your age in dollars to a separate bank account. This could be a regular savings, Roth IRA, college savings, online savings account – whatever type of account you want.
You have to decide what will work better for you – weekly or monthly deposits.
However, the key is you cannot withdraw money until you finish one full year. 52 weeks of saving under your belt!
Why can’t I withdraw money? Because you want to prove to yourself that you can save money and not spend it immediately.
Period. Deposit. Save.
This is your first small steps to saving money. A great money saving idea!
How the Save Age Challenge Works:
Just to recap on this money saving challenge:
- Decide if the Save Age Challenge will be done on a weekly or monthly basis.
- Each week or month deposit your AGE in dollars to a separate bank account. (You can deposit more – Extreme Challenge, too!)
- Make no withdrawals in the account for ONE FULL YEAR! 52 weeks in total!
- Prove to yourself that YOU CAN SAVE MONEY!
How much could you save each year by just saving your age?
Take your age and multiply by 52. That is the amount for this saving money challenge!
