Hey Everyone,

Spam.Jam started a thread in 2009 for a VSP (Virtual Sealed Pot) Challenge. I continued the Challenge on in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Now we are going into 2013 so here is the new thread!!

Linky to the 2009 challenge
Linky to the 2010 challenge
Linky to the 2011 challenge
Linky to the 2012 challenge

[FONT=&quot] The aim is very Simple!!
Every Friday (Or whatever day is easier for you) the aim is to transfer the pounds and pence to round it down to the next nearest £5 or £10. So if you have £36.78 in credit you will transfer £1.78 or£6.78, or £20.04 in credit you would transfer £0.04 only. Some banks do not allow you to transfer less than £1 – If this is the case what I tend to do is note what the money I have left that week then add it in the following weeks transfer.

For me:
The 'Virtual Sealed Pot' is a savings account that is not attached to my bank account and that I cannot dip into whenever I wanted to. I do forget about it which is what the intention is!

In 2010 there were 81 members of the challenge.

[/FONT]In 2011 we had 171 members
In 2012 we had 185 members

For anyone interested:
81 members in 2010 we managed to save a staggering £9031.31 :D
In 2011 from the 171 member we managed to save £19,393.00 :j
In 2012 from the 185 members we managed to save £13,178.09 (there were quite a few people who joined and did not post)

[FONT=&quot] The 2013 challenge will run from Saturday 1st December 2012 until Saturday 30th November 2013. Like the Sealed Pot Challenge
[/FONT][FONT=&quot] it is a good way to save money for Christmas hence the dates of the challenge
To make things easier for me, I would ask that everyone post their VSP number ( I will assign these in due course) in their signature and post their total (in colour if possible please) on the thread, so I can add it to the running totals in this post.

[/FONT][FONT=&quot]If anyone wants to set themselves a target for their savings please let me know.

For those continuing on from 2012 please let me know what your starting total is or if you are starting again in 2013.

Anyone else wishing to join, please just ask, you're most welcome and it's NEVER too late.
Please be patient when asking to join, I am not online every day so it may be a day or two before you are added to the list and assigned a number.

Good Luck everyone
