    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.

    Nothing for me over the weekend.

    Also trying to have as many NSD's as possible to survive the month so will maybe only be what DH puts in there.

    PSL I quite like the sound of counting every quarter, I think I will maybe count it in April & see how I am getting on.

    Hello Everyone
    I'm late to the party as ever, but please could I join in? I've been saving my 50ps for a few months now but have only just stumbled across this thread.
    I have a lot of debt to pay off, so when the pot is full it will go as an overpayment to one of the many credit cards.
    Sx

    Not had too many for a while but do quite like having my 50p pot.
    I see them given to me in my change and think ooooohh that's another one for my pot. Quite satisfying- and some times I get change ending in 40p and I think urgh there won't be any in there.
