Sadly, I have not been able to give as much this year as in past years, but I have donated my time more this year.

I normally donate once or twice a year, but this year will be tough to do.

I have three organizations I give to monthly but there are a few I donate to annually. One way to donate painlessly is through Amazon! You can register through AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), select your organization, and every time you make a purchase, Amazon makes a donation to your chosen organization.

My wife and I started a nonprofit in January of this year. Coming from a religious tradition, previously we were taught to tithe ( give a tenth of our earnings) to our church. This is no dig on anyone who does this, but for us it was more important to center our gift towards direct action. People are hungry, unsheltered and unclothed. We've experienced some of these things personally and strive to give more. Last year was horrible for many. At the https://www.thelifeworksproject.org/ we...

Typically, I give to my chosen charities each month so I'm not jammed up at the end of the year. Sometimes I have to double up if I didn't make my monthly. What I find easy to do also is to always donate or add a couple of dollars at grocery store checkouts and at Petsmart and Petco checkouts, for example (sadly, my good pal died in August so not doing that now). Of course, I have to remember to mark on receipts and add to the Charity/Donation line item in Mint.

I hear you, @A.J. Young Jr . Same here, I no longer tithe to church. My tithe is for charities I want to directly affect.

My donating habits include giving to some nonprofits regularly such as the church I attend and others at least once a year such as the Alzheimer's Association and the American Heart Association. I also give time and household items to other organizations at least once a year.

I not only donate my time and belongings to charitable organizations throughout the year, I shop at them as well. I personally shop 5-10 times a week for my Re-Sell & Re-Purposed home furnishings business at one or of the "non profit" organizations listed here below. I challenge everyone to do the same, you never know what you can find.

I used to donate yearly to a community radio station in my hometown and was able to use my previous job to help raise money for a number of good causes like arts organizations and a local shelter. For part of this year, I donated monthly to a nonprofit dedicated to making towns and cities more livable for all. I need to get back to it! Be The Match is also a great org to donate to! They help build a world-wide donor registry to help find matches for patients in need of life-saving cell...

Okay that’s a nice idea but it is assuming that you are also decreasing spending money by that amount in the same matter. I would modify it by percentage of decrease in debt especially if your debt is affected by the lovely interest rates which are increasing. I am only saying this because I have tried this method to put money away and I know that I can’t control the unexpected things that create extra costs that will affect your ability to put money away for saving. To do this plan as it...

So, when you are paid monthly, set the money aside for each week? Since 12 months is only 48 weeks, I get confused how to do this on a monthly basis because with your figures (which are correct, as I did check) mine comes out to an extra month because to save 52 weeks, although it is a year, and 12 months are also a year and I would save 13 months? I think I'm confusing myself. I guess for those of us paid monthly we should add $20 at the beginning or end to make up the difference?

For Christmas my mom bought all the grandkids something to help them bulk up their money intelligence... For my adult children it was how to manage money books. For my 6 year old nephew it was $25 in Loonies with a note: 10% to buy food for the food bank 10% to savings 80% to spend. What % of your income do you put away each pay period?

Yeah, this doesn't take into account when people receive their paychecks. I think the fun lies in how easy it is to get started -- save just $1 in the first week and ramp up from there. A much more simplified way is to save $115 a month, or around $30 a week. That makes more sense in my head. 🙂

Good points! For me, I'm prioritizing saving what extra income I can after I pay down a nice chunk of debt each month.

Seconded with Maria - this chart is perhaps more generic if expressed as a percentage of income, like in for example described in the Richest Man In Babylon (book's like 2 bucks only--might be worth picking up to learn about financial concepts), where one would save at least 10% of their income. That said, this chart is amazingly awesome and is definitely a significant way to start saving and putting away money that can you can invest and grow to tons of money over time. I personally save by...
