A recent TikTok video has gone viral for turning saving money into a fun game that you can do to track your savings.

The whole idea behind it is that you can challenge yourself to save a specific amount and it becomes fun — like a competition with yourself!

All you need are a few items.

You need a money tin, like a piggy bank, where you can put money into a slit in the top.

Next, you'll need some stickers.

The TikTok video shows star stickers but you can use any kind you want. You also need paper and a marker.

Next, you need to write out the numbers 1-100 on a piece of paper.

The paper is the tracker for the money challenge game and lets you keep track of how much you are saving.

Then, you'll put money in every day.

This TikTok user puts money in every day, but you can try to do it every week if that works better for you.

Then, you sticker the number you put in.

For example, when she puts in $50, she puts a star right over the number 50 on the tracker sheet.

The goal is to get every single number covered with a sticker.

The goal of the challenge is to get a star or sticker on every single number by a set time frame. By the time you're done, you can save thousands!

Some people in the comments had questions.

Some were unsure if you should do it daily or weekly. Some people said you can pick a frequency, like twice a week, to deposit money.

Some said to be "careful" with coins.

Some claimed that when they put coins in there with paper money, it ripped some of the paper money. Just something to keep in mind!

If you do it daily, you can save $5,050 in 100 days.

If you do this every single day, by the time you're done, you'll save $5,050, which is a lot of money. Of course, since that's not totally realistic for everyone, you could set the time frame over a couple of months, or even the entire year.

Would you be willing to try this?
