My Sealed Pot Result 2010.

Options
Sorry I just cannot find the original thread but have opened my sealed pot tonight. (I had to break into it earlier in the year).

Anyway we are going Christmas shopping tonight so I opened it to see how much is in there.

Sealed pot = £180 exactly.



I have also saved £200 in Marks and Spencer vouchers so I have no need to worry about covering presents.

I know its early but I may forget to check in again. I think it is Su who started the thread, so many thanks Su and all you other lovely people.

It is so lovely to not have to worry. :)

    I am going to try this, I did try the mortgage pig idea but we kept dipping into it so I think a 'sealed' pot will be better lol

    I am assuming its as simple as it says, just a pot sealed so you can't get into it easy, with a slit in the top to save loose change in I think ;)

    If you use the search function you will find a thread with a sealed pot challenge. Loads of people on it.
