    50p Savers 2016 8th Feb 16 at 2:46 PM
    Hey Guys & Gals,

    I know there was a thread for this last year but to date I haven't come across one for 2016.

    I am going to save up 50p in a tin at home then at the end of the year will cash them in to either pay to the debt, treat myself to something nice or save.

    My aim is to save £150 in total.

    Hope there are more of us out there that want to join in.

    Dxxx

    Well done you!

    My DH used to have a parking tin, might have a wee look next time I'm in the van.

    Excellent.

    I have 2 lurking in my purse, going to put them in the tin when I get home so that I don't spend them.

    Anyone got one of those nice shiny new 5.00 notes yet?

    I think I might save any of those I come across.

    tattycath - me neither! I had 4 stashed & I am down to 2. I am way too poor to be saving them so if they need to get spent they will be.

    mummytummy - Yay! That is fab! Hope you have an amazing holiday.

    I Love comps - Well done, keep at it.

    I had a 0.50p lurking in my purse but spent it this morning as needed to replenish my coffee in work, no way could I live without that.

    Hi,


    Didn't do too good on this one this year, mainly due to DS dibbing in without asking.

    purplemumfo2 - Me neither but mainly just due to poor budgeting on our part. Dipped in for bus fares, coffees, lunches etc. Determined to do better in 2017.

    New thread will start 1 January 2017 & I cannot wait.

    I have 2 in my purse today ready for the tin.

    Ive got about a tenners worth now. I've already banked £30 worth this year. Didn't start challenge until May though. So my optomistic target of £100 isn't looking so promising. It will be more like £50 I think.

    I am just looking forward to saving them in 2017 now.
