Family Takes on “Ipon Challenge”, Shares Inspiring Results of First Quarter Savings

Everyone knows how difficult it can be to save money – and many of us are really just living from paycheck to paycheck, unsure of even having money for emergency situations. Of course, many wish their lives weren’t that way but it really is a fact in life – and unless you do something about it, you’ll end up in that cycle over and over again.

But things are beginning to change, with more people now trying their best to save money. While it’s hard to do it on your own, others have finally found a way to ‘force’ themselves to save – by joining the ‘ipon challenge’ (savings challenge).

There are different ways to do this challenge and you can choose whether you will follow the set guidelines on how much you should save per week or per payday but the main goal here is to encourage everyone to save money.

On Facebook page PESO SENSE, an avid reader shared the inspiring results of the first quarter savings for her family’s own ‘ipon challenge’. And it’s really great to see!

Dear peso sense, just want to thank you for inspiring us to save as much as possible. Please hide my identity na lang po.. the photo i sent you was just taken a while ago, we get very excited to open our magic alkansya that is why hindi pa ganun kalaki ipon ng mga bata but then im delighted to know that even if they’re baon everyday are just enough sa snack nila eh nkakaipon pa dn kahit pano..

Btw nanalo ang mommy at bunso (kami ni baby) sa challenge in just 3mos i saved as much as 20300 oh diba bongga.. we will continue the challenge asap and will open again after 3mos.. thanks again.. 😇🙏

Perhaps that would encourage more people to save money, whether by themselves or together with the family, right?

What do you think of this family’s successful ‘ipon challenge’?
