Save £667.95 a year with the 1p Saving Challenge (free printable chart!)

Read the article

The 1p Saving Challenge involves saving a little money every day, starting with 1p. The next day you save 2p, the day after 3p. After a year, you’ll be setting aside £3.65 on the final day and have a total of £667.95 in savings!

By setting money aside little and often, the idea is that you’ll find it easier to make room in your budget for saving, and start a habit you’ll hopefully continue.

The challenge has been popularised by bloggers like Skint Dad and the Monzo Community love it!

How to do the 1p Savings Challenge manually

You can do the challenge by using this chart, moving the money manually and ticking it off every day. Just print off the one below to get started!

You can try doing the challenge in reverse if you want to start off savings lots and make the challenge gradually get easier. Or try ticking off random amounts if you want to spread the cost across the year.
