    Yay Greenfingers!

    I've been saving them for years - you can see my current total from my sig ;) .

    Most I saved was over £200, I used it for a washing machine deposit and to have my bathroom floor fitted!

    Reading the thread - it inspired me!

    So, got a box, sealed it up and just chucked in the only 2 x £2 coins that I could find! Heres saving!

    We have a loose change jar, normally anything 20p and under - 50p and £1's if I have plenty of change in my purse. Manage about £150 a year - this is used for the kids shoes in Clarks sales 2/3 times a year (have 4 kids and new shoes are not cheap......)

    I put away in vaious piggy banks, whisky bottles etc. everything under £1 (ie. 1p, 2p, 5p 10p and 50p). I counted it out today ('cos I really need some extra!!!) and it came to £70.32. That's in about a year. The thing is, it's all just 'change' that would have got spent if I hadn't stashed it away!!!

    Sadly, though, the microwave died yesterday and had to be replaced and, damn me, the scanner died today so had to get another one. Seems like one step forward and three back at the moment!!!

    £2 and £1 coins are put in my piggy everytime i get one. I've been doing so since 1st Jan, when i last counted i had £42 :)

    It's well worth doing but you have to have the will power to not break into it when you see loads in front of you :)
