Savings Challenge Planner

Starter emergency fund in just a month!

Do you find it difficult to save money? Try the 1-month $1000 savings challenge! It’s a practical way to intentionally set aside money as savings. Physically putting cash away and checking off the task each day serves as a purposeful exercise and will motivate you to achieve your savings goal.

How it works

Each day for the next 30 days, you’ll pick a dollar amount from the worksheet and then put that amount of cash in an envelope for safekeeping, coloring in each block as you go.

Once you’ve completed the whole diamond, you’ll have $1,000 of savings tucked away!
