This year, one of my goal is to challenge myself to save money and be frugal. I know that if I do this in the long run it will benefit me and my family. One of the Savings Challenge that I want to do is the 52 Week Savings Plan. I saw this first from one of my friend and I immediately got interested. If you will look at the chart below, you can see that it’s something realistic. Unlike other money savings plan with this Savings Challenge you only have to save little amount each week and after 52 weeks you’ll have $1378!
The concept of 52 Week Savings Plan is very simple, you just have to save and deposit the amount that corresponds to the number of the week into your account. What I love about this plan is it’s not intimidating and even kids especially teens can do this. By saving small amounts, at the end of the challenge, you’ll have extra money.
My daughter begged for a huge bunch on bananas last week, with promises that she would eat every single one of them. Well, 6 days later, guess what? We had 4 very ripe bananas left, that were not going to get eaten. I hate wasting money so I had to think of something to do with them! It occurred to me that I have never tried to make banana nut bread!
Now I have to admit something, I am NOT a baker. I don’t have a fancy mixer (although I do stare at them longingly in the store..) and I love my cakes from a box. When I looked up banana nut bread recipes a lot of them called for “cutting in cold butter” and other things that just weren’t going to work for me, and I got to thinking that it probably doesn’t for a lot of other people either, so I wanted to share this Super Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe with you guys! It takes about 5 minutes of prep, and 25 minutes in the oven, that’s it!

I have a love affair with cheese. It is okay my husband knows. He used it to his advantage. I remember years ago he did just that. Yes, it is a bit foggy to go back years ago. When did I get this old? I remember being in college and we went on a date. You know the one where you put on fancy clothes. He put on a suit and I put on a dress. You could say our love was confirmed over an easy fondue recipe.Continue reading
