Isn’t this awesome? We’ve shared a number of savings charts recently that require specific amounts to be saved every week, but this one is different because it’s flexible and fun!

Jamie Jeffers of the blog Medium Sized Family created the chart:

“I’ve pulled together a variety of amounts of money that add up to $1,000. This chart allows you to pick and choose the best amount of money to line up with the kind of week you’re having,” Jeffers wrote on her website.

The blogger recommends that you print your own copy of the chart (click here) and hang it on the fridge to keep yourself motivated. Just remember to cross off one box every week until you’re done.
