Reverse 52 Week Saving Challenge

So, everywhere you look, you can find the "Money Saving Challenge".
But...what about those people that only get paid once a month?  To save something every week is hard.  
Soooooo...I've come up with my own challenge for this next year. 

It's a "Reverse 52 Week Money Saving Challenge".  Not only will this help you with the monthly savings, but you can also see more in your savings sooner.  So, you can actually feel like you're accomplishing something!! Which for me is a big deal because I like to see results, and I'm kinda impatient.

How does this work?  Well, it's almost all backwards...but you still build up to saving the most at the end of the year.  So, without further interruptions...
Here it is:
