A dollar doubled

by Scott

Hi Judge Judy, After years of going through money like water while I was working and never saving a thing, I find myself now living on a fixed income due to disability. However I'm saving. On January 1st last year I started the 52 week saving plan. On week one I put $1 in the bank The following week I put $2 in the bank And on and on, each week increasing by a $1 By the end of last year I had $1378 in the bank and took my first holiday in 15 years.
