Second Quarter Goal Setting

When I started the $20 challenge, I set the first quarter goals at two times the $20, and I thought I might try to double the initial amount each quarter. My current total is $65.35, which isn't far from $80 but is probably too much to continue to double each quarter, so I will set my goal for $80 over whatever the total is on March 31.
