    The365 Day Penny Challenge

    The365 Day Penny Challenge 29th Dec 16 at 11:03 AM
    A friend of mine has just started this challenge on Facebook and I thought it seemed like a fun way of saving.
    I have started this thread to keep me motivated but if anyone wants to join me then please feel free to do so and I will start a challenger list.
    Also if anyone knows of a simular challenge then please point me in the right direction as I have searched and can't seem to find one.
    The idea of the challenge is that
    Day 1- Save 1p
    Day5- Save 5p
    Day 100- Save £1.00
    Day 365 Save £3.65

    By the end of the year you will have saved £667.95.

    I am not going to save in order of the day as it will get quite expensive as the year goes on but will do it according to the loose change I have at the time. I have started a spread sheet and will shade in each amount I have saved.

    Looking forward to meeting fellow money savers

    End of month money shuffle, clearing purses and pockets of odds this week to try to catch up on some of the days missed means another £12.41 added, giving a total of £ 73.54.

    However, being slightly OCD about that very unround number I've appropriated a little out of the car parking fund in the car to add the odd £1.46 which brings the total so far to a much calmer £75!

    Happy weekend to all.

    A bit of extra work means a bit of extra cash, so £10 snaffled from purse as a way of
    removing temptation & rewarding NSDs so far in July. Also helps with the catch up campaign from starting this challenge late.
    Total now £85 / £667.95
