It's week 11 of the 52 week Money Challenge, and we're making steady progress!

We've also reached a very cool milestone.

According to psychologists, it takes about 66 days to truly form a new habit that you'll stick with.

We started this challenge on January 1, and today, March 11, is the 71st day of 2016...which means we are well past 66 days and this saving habit should be a part of your normal routine now!

It's truly a life-altering challenge in the best possible way. If you can do this, who knows what else you can challenge yourself to do!

This week, add $42 to your savings, for a total of $517! That's right, we've passed the $500 mark. Way to go!
