New Year Savings Challenge

Happy New Year!

With the new year comes new resolutions and new habits. With the holiday season over, the last thing you may be thinking of is your holiday spending budget for 2022. But how nice would it be to have $1,300 already saved by this December? For many people, getting started is the hardest part of saving. You can start saving by participating in this 52-Week Savings Challenge!

How it works:

  1. Open a Border Bank savings account OR dedicate an existing account to this challenge.
  2. Each week match the savings amount with the number of the week and place the money in your savings account ($1 the first week, $2 the second week, and so on.)
  3. If you stick to this challenge throughout the entire year, you’ll save a total of $1,378.

By starting small and creating a weekly habit, the 52-Week Savings Challenge can help you build a habit that doesn't feel too overwhelming while ending up with a significant amount of savings at the end of the year.

Happy saving!
