    Thanks for the PM - please set me up with a challenger # and I'll update the sig!

    I'll continue my current method of 'virtua saving', which is to transfer amounts of £1-2 (£1 is the smallest transfer my account allows) into an online savings account. Like yourself, I'm using it to balance off my current account balance.

    Again, great idea and another step on the road to solvency :)

    Great idea to make it a proper challenge! Thanks for the pm, count me in too please!

    I've made a good start today - the "loose change" in my current account was £9.89, so this amount has been dutifully transferred into savings.
