    Woo hoo, excellent!

    I'm not sure how many I have in there, just trying to add them when I get them in change.

    Been quite bad lately and spending them all!

    Yeah will be back in 2018.

    I took mine to the bank a bit sooner Than planned. I had just under £50! That was excellent. and I had some old pound coins to add too which the bank accepted.

    The man asked me how much I had but I didn't know exactly and he told me off and said I should know! But then he weighed them so I didn't really understand what he meant. Because he wouldn't just trust the figure I said and not weigh them. It was a bit strange.

    Thank you Dolly. I have 3 in my next pot. xxx

    Eeeeeeeek that's brilliant!!!

    It's a pain when they do that.

    I got a HSBC account as they have a machine you just throw all your change in, it counts it and adds the full amount to your account.

    I might empty mine out soon.
