If your New Year's resolution is to set aside some money and start an emergency fund of save more money in 2019, here's an easy way to put money aside without noticing too much.
The idea is to put aside a little bit of money each week, with each week's contribution a little higher than the previous week's.
Open a totally separate savings account for this goal. Put $1 into a savings account week 1. Put away $2 week 2. $3 week 3, and so on. By the end of 2019 you should have close to $1,400 stashed away.
