Everyone knows how difficult it can truly be to save money – especially if there are a lot of things you have to pay for, stuff you need to buy, and constant temptations from mall sales and online store promos.
Of course, there had been a lot of suggestions about how you can save money, including ‘ipon challenges’ that tell you to save a certain amount of money per week or some other regular interval. While many have found this easy to do, others felt that the challenges were difficult to achieve; especially because the amount you need to save increases each week.
One girl was able to save Php42,300 ($850) in a different Php50 ipon challenge. Instead of saving a set amount of money every week, she saves all the Php50 she receives – that means that any Php50 she receive is put inside her savings box.

TAKE TIME TO READ BAKA MAKATULONG SA SAVINGS.. This is to inspire and not to brag. 50 PESOS CHALLENGE HERE’S HOW.
yehey!!!! daming 50’s diba? dagdag savings. malayo mararating mo kapag nag decide ka disiplinahin sarili mo lalo na sa savings. kasi karamihan satin nag alkansya para makapag save pero kapag gimikan o galaan game na game at dudukot o susundutin or worst babasagin ang kanilang alkansya matuloy lang ang mga wants nila pero nasa tao naman talaga ang disiplina kung pano sila makakapag save.
hindi natin dapat unahin ang mga wants natin, dahil ang WANTS makakapaghintay pero ang NEEDS hindi. Aminado ako before magastos akong tao pero hindi naman kasi tayo pa bata, pa tanda po tayo kaya sana isipin natin lahat ng pag gagastusan natin dahil hindi natin alam may mga respinsibilidad tayo sa buhay na dapat pag laanan ng savings.
Need natin mag save habang bata pa tayo para pag dumating ang near future hindi tayo sobrang mamomoblema when it comes sa money kasi alam mong nakapag save ka.
So, how did she do it? Read on to find out…
