    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.

    Decided to clear out my tin early, it's our 6th wedding anniversary next month so we are gonna do a couple of overnight stays then nice days out for the rest.

    Had £250.00 from my £0.50, £1.00 & £2.00 coins.

    Starting again from scratch but it means none of these spends will go on my CC

    Added a couple to my tin this morning.

    We've decided that all the coins we save are going to pay for our anniversary treats each year.

    Cleared this out with the other coins a couple of weeks ago so tin looks & feel very empty.

    It will start building up again though.
