Money Saving Challenge: How Will you Save Money This Year?

Surely you've seen it posted all over Facebook and the blogging world.  I love the idea of this.  I would LOVE to be able to do it, but realistically, $52/week the last week of December seems like pushing it to me.  I just don't want to set myself up for disaster/failure.  We live on one income and really really don't need anything.  We want for stuff; but even then we usually find a way to get it.  We don't deny ourselves much; within reason, of course.

I think for now I plan to take $5/week and put it away.  One way to make sure that $5 isn't spent is to get it in coins from the bank and putting it in a jar/piggy bank. (I'm more apt to spend dollar bills if they are saved and if the money is in my savings there's a chance I'll swipe it away using the card!  I have discipline but not that much when faced with an amazing shoe sale...). I'd love to hear your plans for saving this year? Will you be doing a challenge similar to this one?
