    "Bankrate's article Build a 52 Week Savings Plan with the 52 Week Money Challenge is an interesting money challenge that will help in saving money. The challenge is saving a small amount of money each week in order to build up a savings, take a small vacation, or whatever you may feel like doing after a year of following the plan."

    "The 52 week savings plan is a good resource for starting to save money over a year. It instructs you to save small amounts and get into the habit of saving more each week along the way. It's limited in scope as it's just one plan, but it's a good one."

    "A book about how to reduce your monthly bills and expenditures. A lot of the ideas are common sense, turn off the lights when not using the room for example, though there are a few ones that seem a little bit inventive. This book might help you understand how to save some money off of some of the utilities that you already pay."
