I'm thinking about starting a new challenge....

Options
Wanted to see what people think

Basically the idea is whenever you use a money off coupon, you actually put the money you've saved into s jar - so if its 20p off something you put 20p into the jar and at the end of the year you tot it all up and put it towards you debts (or have a big knees up at xmas!!)

The idea is that you actually see the money you've saved and either pay a chunk off debt or treat yourself to comething nice rather than it just being frittered away on something else.

Need to think of a snazzy title....

anyone interested :confused:

    Hello,

    I like the sound of a shiny new challenge & this sounds like one I can actually stick to :rolleyes: .

    Is it just money off vouchers, cos I dont get many of those :( or, could it also be for things like bogof's or 2 for 3 offers ?

    Tell me the rules please so I dont do it wrong & get told off :D

    Great idea, thanks

    Hi - that sounds like an awesome idea - and I like the idea of doing the bogoffs and 2 for 1's too! My tesco's arrived today and I had total savings of £15.33 - so I will put this aside until you decide on a name !

    oh sounds good :j

    small savings to big savings challenge?? :rolleyes:

    a lady i used to keywork in my previous employment used to do this- bless her, she would buy bogof- put her savings in a jar and then quite often try and give the free one away :confused:. She had a heart of gold :A
    QUIDCO- £88.99p :D
    Everytime i say the word exercise- i wash my mouth out with chocolate :EasterBun

    Anyone want to join?

    Like tired mum's title - small savings to big savings challenge.

    Rules are:

    Everytime you use a money off coupon or bogof etc you put the money you actually saved into a jar. You can only count things you were going to buy anyway - ie. if you are tempted by bogof cakes or reduced biscuits this doesnt count as you have actually ended up spending more anyway if hat makes sense?!

    Shall we agree a date to open our jars and tot up? Was thinking 31st Dec so it can go towards Jan payments which is usually a tight month rather than just getting spent at xmas??

    I think they do something similar on Old Style - called Pin Money Savings possibly..... I don't go over there very often, so it would be great to do one over here too. I'm in!
