    Just went to the charity shop to see if they had a bit of tinsel to brighten up our side window, and not only did they have some georgous purple high quality tinsel, they had 4 pieces for £1.50........ so I also gained a 50p piece in change! Headed for my pot when I get home.

      Hello 50psavers :)


      Happy Christmas!


      So... not finished my shopping, not fed the troll and can't get the similes to work! (also had to hand over a 50p to the cab driver tonight!)


      However I have updated the list! see post two :) and am very much looking forward to the new year!


      If you want to join or I have left you off the list (very sorry) please let me know by posting here.


      I really need all the money I can get to buy a new car so this challenge is very important. I am using this and my virtual sealed pot to save.


      So members how we doing?

      I'd like to join please!

      I like 50ps there s something quite satisfying about them, I think it's because up until now they have been prized for parking but a change of job means I no longer need them for this so I will save them all up!

      I think I will save them for nothing more exciting than DH's Christmas pressure.
      Can I ever learn this budgeting lark? So far it's not looking promising

      Freudian slip :) I assume you mean present :) I know what you mean tho is supposed to be so much fun but regardless of my plans I always end up in Sainbury's on Christmas eve supressing a huge rage!

      I had terrible trouble when I had to pay for parking, so annoying to have to hand over in my case 1.40 worth of tens and twenties!


      Welcome to the challenge !

      Haha I think my iPad knows my mind better than I do!

      But yes supermarket claustrophobia kicked in earlier! I love a Christmas hate the pressure of it!

      I have a complete aversion to parking costs, wasted money in my eyes!

      I have raided my purse, potted my first 50p and found £2 x 2 in rate pot but no keys to access it so I suspect my 50p fund will do well if I can't raid it!:D

      Couple of 50p's gleaned over the weekend, where are they all? Probably in everyone's pots. :)

      Calm day in town yesterday, and today the queue for W***rose went all ther way down the road, past the roundabout and then on as far as the eye could see. Is food running out or what?
