Simple saving plan

If you haven't heard of the 52-week saving plan, now's the time to listen up! All you do is save R10 in the first week, then increase your savings by R10 each week as the year progresses. So you save R20 in Week 2, R30 in Week 3, etc, until you're saving over R520 a week in December. By the end of the year, though it will be tough going, you would have saved R13 780! If R10-increments are too much, try R5 or even R2.50. You'll still have a tidy sum at the end of it.
