    Make £5 a day: Jan £6.20/ £155
    £2 Club = £8.00;50p Club = £10.00;20p Club = £9.80

    THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN GETTING UP FOR WORK IS NOT HAVING ANY WORK TO GET UP FOR.

    Hi

    Can I join again please. Sorry I was not an active poster but your thread inspired me to keep saving and last year I managed to save my 50p's until mid November when I cashed them in early to help towards Christmas spend. I started saving 50p's again already have a nice little collection, not sure of exact amount but it's near the £10 mark.

    Target for me this year is £120
    20p savers club #38, aim £120, 50p savers club #30, aim £120

    I think everyone is on the list.


    I don't have a target. I am hoping that by the time 2014 is done the 50ps will be paid into a Savings account.


    I hope everyone has had a lovely first day of 2014.


    I am trying to do something towards my goals each day, how ever small.


    today's thing was a No Spend Day.

    Please can I join the 50p club. I don't anticipate getting a lot as I am hopeful of not spending any money this year, lol! I have a vintage tin that I will use. I am going to use it towards my 14th wedding anniversary on the 16th December…

    :j Excited to report the addition of 20 - count 'em - 50p coins to the pot today!

    My brother's friend was having his yearly sort out of his coin jars and asked if I had any spare coin bags. When he came to collect them today he had loads of 50p coins and said he would trade them with me.

    So having handed over a crisp £10 I haven't really gained anything, but I find it's very easy to waste a note whereas I really agonise about handing over even one 50p/£2 coin... Oh dear, this is clearly where I have been going wrong all these years!

    Ahh I can now hold my head up high - added three 50p's to my pot last night.

    With the phrase - you have another think coming, I used to say that in a telling off fashion, until my (then) 5 year old son said "what sort of a think?" and it sort of killed the moment of crossness and I could never say it with a straight face again :)
      To those who are given much, much is expected

      exactly, it doesn't make sense to say think. You can't control what a person is going to think? grrrrr. Grammar and language drive me nuts.


      and I am cold!


      so am going to do some decluttering to warm up......I won't really sit on my bed with a blanket and watched Charmed.


      really I won't.
