    0.50p savers 2017 14th Dec 16 at 2:12 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.

    Yay, excellent work.

    I started my tin with the pitiful amount that I saved in 2016, really only started it in November/December time.

    Managed to nab some from the DH's change that he empties out his pockets every night

    I think some of those Beatrix potter ones are sought after and worth more than 50p. I have a tight winkle one which is on royal mint website for £10 so worth a look. I don't really understand it tho and of course if you buy from royal mint it will come on a nice pack but handy to
    Know.
    I have had hardly any 50ps recently. Hunting them out!

    hey i'm interested to join,
    but I'm taking part in the sealed pot challenge and I just wanted to ask if i can include the total of how many 50ps I've saved here but also put it towards the SPC, or do i have to have the challenges separate?

    Welcome Thora,

    I have added your number.

    More the merrier & challenges can be combined as far as I am aware there are not hard & fast rules as long as you keep all the threads updated.

    Ive got £8 in my tin so far. It looks like more.
    If i can get £8 per month this is nearly £100 in december 2017 which would be amazing.

    Thank you Dolly. xxx
