    0.50p savers 2017 14th Dec 16 at 3:12 PM
    Hey all,

    Continuing on from last years challenge we will be running the 0.50p savers again in 2017.

    Link to last years thread - http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5408671

    If you would like to join in let me know.

    I am adding my own reason in for saving these 0.50p's so you can feel free to do the same if you want.

    I would like to join in for 2017 if may!

    I want to clear my credit card and plan to use cash instead of my card so I think that having 50ps to save would be a nice incentive and also savings to buy something nice just for me! Going to pop out to the shop and pick up a few tins!

    How much will a full tin hold on average do you think it holds??

    Hey welcome to the thread, I have allocated you a number.

    Oh I'm not sure depends on the size of the tin?

    We will find out at the end of the challenge.

    Please can I sign up Dolly. I'm not sure what I'm saving for. I think it will be something I want but don't need. Maybe something beautiful from Karen Millen that seems so out of reach right now. Maybe 300 target.

    As ever thank you for helping us all so much. xx
