Hello Folks,


I am still in debt! to the tune of about 4600 pounds. BUT it is going down!


Nothing works as well as this place for sorting out money related stuff (actually here you can find all sorts of excellent advice about pretty much everything)

Now for some saving money in jar is silly - pointless even, put it on the pesky CC bill or in a bank account - apparently people save in banks ;)

However I loved being part of the £2 thread and the Sealed Pot thread. I got huge satisfaction from a full money box!! and using it for Christmas or paying off debts.


In 2013 I saved 199.10 in my Sealed pots. Only 10.50 of that was fifty pences! but it is a start and a start is better than nothing :)


Here is the link to the previous thread,


http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4339999

And so to this thread, I have a purple troll for my 50ps and he has promised me he will look after my 50ps for me.....


The only rule is


1. Any 50p pieces must be collected and saved in a jar/money box/old sock etc. (or even paid into a bank if you are a bit strange ;) )


The Challenge will run from 14/12/13 :) to 12/12/14 although Savers can join at any point during the year!

You can set a target, perhaps you could save for the Car tax or the TV licence or holiday spending money?

So please post and join me!


Love Buffy xx
