    I save 5p coins in a bottle I cannot see a challenge for it so I am setting one up.

    Lets see how much we can save in 5p coins between now and the end of the year.

    If you wish to join please leave your name and I will allocate you a number.

    You can set yourself a target or just see how you can save. Good Luck.

    Good morning all, I have just been emptying my purse of 5p's after every time I went shopping and now have the grand total of £1.80.


    Just wondering what to do with them once saved, I see mummytummy has taken them to the bank , any other ideas?

    Taking one day at a time.

    Well my 5 PS are going to be bagged up and taken to the bank. I am going to add these to my retirement savings. I need to save 5 pounds per bag , so at this rate I will be retired before I have even saved my first bag.
