Hi everyone. Here we are again with another Sealed Pot Challenge!

The idea ...inspired by "mumzyof2" last year.. is to save as much as is possible for us all, as individuals, throughout the following year for Christmas, hence why we seal the pots to save us being tempted from opening and spending it. Any spare cash can be put away, every day, week, month, whatever is best for you all. It's all very easy and all newcomers will very soon get the idea, but below are the basics.

Get yourselves pots, it doesn't need to cost much ...make yourself one by using Nykmedia's paper mache recipe by using this link http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.html?t=605703&page=30 (the recipe can be found near the bottom of the page) If making your own doesn't appeal then buy a money box, piggy bank, ready sealed (and cheap) tins in well known, reasonably priced shops! If you wish, use any pot for now then look out for something different/better in sales after Christmas, or put whichever one you fancy on your Christmas list. You can even use a coffee jar, gravy carton, drinking chocolate carton. There are many options in the house to choose from .....which are extremely MSE. After selecting your pot, seal round the lid with cellotape, make a slit in the top ....and away you go!

NB. If you make a paper mache pig/cow/penguin or whichever you wish to turn it into, then you won't need to seal it, though you will need to "operate" on it at the end of the challenge!! Still, you can always have the pleasure of making a new one towards the end of the year. Terrimundi pots, widely available in shops and on line, are another already sealed way to save, though you may need to smash it come the end of the year ....or shake it to death! :D Though, not too sure how well that works.

Here is a list of members from last time and their numbers which, if you wish - and to make it easy to remember, can be put on to your signatures. Below that list are all the members who have signed up over the past 2 or 3 months, here are your numbers you've waited so patiently (or not) for folks. We've just had an amazing year, let's keep it going and see what we can achieve next year. Good luck everyone and save well!!! I think we'll aim for the closing date to be Monday December 2nd 2009.

Anyone wishing to join please post to say so and I'll give you a number so you also can join in the fun.

Sue.

NB. It seems that during the change-over period in late summer, three numbers appear to have been duplicated a little. No one's fault I'm afraid, but apologies in advance. So if anyone thinks their number is wrong please say so and I can give them a new one. However, if the members concerned are no longer with the challenge ...I never said that bit above!! :rolleyes:

    All more recent members listed below as too many to list above

    To answer one or two queries which may arise:

    1/ You don't have to put a Target at all if you don't wish to, just wait and see at the end of the year by all means. If you don't meet the target you set, it doesn't matter at all.

    2/ You can put money in your pots whenever you wish to, some of us can only put a few pence each day or each week, whilst others manage a couple of pounds, but then we may go for a couple of weeks without being able to put any in. If you have change left after you've been shopping - stick it in the pot! Why not, it won't be missed. So it's all entirely up to everyone to please themselves, but to save all you can for YOUR sakes!

    3/ Mainly it's a challenge to see how much we can save in a year for Christmas 2009. However, this year we've had some members who needed theirs for bills, and personally, I'd far sooner they take it out for that rather than pay more interest or miss a due date. You can always start again, even if it's getting later in the year, just be happy with what YOU wish.

    4/ Mainly we save for Christmas - but - if you wish to save for something special then please do so, the most important thing, to my mind, is that we're saving ...and hopefully not tempted to take it out unnecessarily. If anyone has any other queries, then please sing out ....though not too loudly, you might shatter the pots!

    Could this be the cause of the credit crunch? Everyone is borrowing money from the banks to put in sealed pots for Christmas. On a debt advice forum too. Bizarre.

  • Good Morning fellow "sealed pot challengers".
    Yesterday I received some very welcome news from HFC bank, they are repaying my PPI premiums from a loan 5 years ago, the princely sum of £1533.32 (Yay), this is on top of Tesco credit card repaying £774 in PPI, so it's going to be a great Christmas in our household this year, all thanks to MSE and the very helpful & knowledgable people on here. Well that's my bragging out the way.
    Welcome to round 2 of the sealed pot challenge, looking forward to all the banter and support from all the friends I've made on here. Don't forget were here to look after each other. My "new" sealed pot is a 2.5 Kg Celebrations tub with the lid glued on and a slit cut in the lid, there's already some coins in there this morning.

    Have a great day everyone, and a warm welcome to all the newbies who've joined this years challenge.
