Saturday Savers Club with @sally-saver | 2023 Launch and FAQs | Everyone Welcome | EDS for Comments
Welcome to Saturday Savers Club for 2023!
Saturday Savers Club is for anyone who wants to save in any currency for any purpose. The Club is a supportive group of people who meet up around the weekly post, usually on a Saturday but occasionally on a Sunday, to share tips and techniques and have some fun in the process.
Saving is a skill that takes time and practice to acquire and, like learning any skill, doesn't always go the way you planned. Saturday Savers Club provides a framework that you can use to help you on your way, as well as tips and a process to provide or support the skills you need to design and manage your own savings plan.
Here's what happened in the first year of Saturday Savers Club.
How It Works
It's always good to have a framework or a target when you start saving and we're going to use the 365 Penny A Day Challenge. This starts nice and easy, so slow you don't even notice, just day 1, put aside one penny, day 2 put aside two pennies, until day 365 when you save 365p and you end up with 66,795 pennies or 667.95 USD or GBP (or HIVE or HBD).
You can do the 365 Day Challenge with any unit of currency - pennies, cents, hive, bitcoin - whatever you have lying around and you can easily get your hands on. You can keep physical pennies in a jar, or save them in an account, maybe a credit union account, or save digital pennies in your hive wallet.
At the end of the post are some charts and spreadsheets you can use to track your progress. Just copy and save the one that works best for you. You can join the Club and start saving at any time of the year.
The Saturday Savers Club is going to use the weekly chart in the Resources section below. Each week, the equivalent amount is going to be put aside in the @sally-saver account and recorded in the weekly Saturday Savers Club post. This year we are going to be saving HIVE (day 1 = 0.01 HIVE, day 2 = 0.02 HIVE etc) to grow the account to Minnow status.
I did this for the first time in 2020. I was blasé about the first week: 'Ha! I laugh at your 3p!'
... and worried (needlessly) about the final week: 'Erm ... you're saying that'll be £21.75?'
Of course, by the time I made it to week 52 (and weeks 48, 49, 50 and 51) I had learned how to put those pennies together every day without affecting my budget or the way I lived. That's right, I learned how to save. Gradually, week by week, you learn how to find that little extra bit of money that is going to make a 670 HIVE difference by the end of the year.
There's a bonus, too, to learning how to save, which is that your attitude and your approach to money and your economic well-being will have changed. You'll be in a different place and have a different mindset.
Here is @justclickindiva's experience of following the 365 Challenge for a year.
You don't have to follow the Saturday Savers Club framework. Several regular Saturday Savers Club members designed their own savings plan and followed that through the year. Other members adapted the 365 Challenge to meet their circumstances. Just choose the plan that is right for you.
Have a Savings Goal

One of the biggest things that makes a difference to saving successfully is having a savings goal - for Saturday Savers Club, that's something you want to achieve by the end of 2023.
In 2022, @phoenixwren saved for a keyboard and @lauramica for a trip to a distant province.
Reasons to Save - Some Savings Goals
- Become a Hive Minnow
- Build an Emergency Fund
- Clear Debt
- Pay for Christmas (or other celebrations)
- Have a Crypto portfolio or become a HIVE business owner
This year, the Saturday Savers Club will be saving HIVE to become a HIVE Minnow by the end of the Year. If you're a new or small account, save along with us and become a Minnow by the end of the year (or maybe you want to become a Dolphin or an Orca)?
What's the goal for your savings?
