    Evening

    I went to pick my sister up to take her shopping and I mentioned that I saw some money boxes in tesco yesterday for 32p each. They were heart shaped ones left over from Valentine's Day. My nephew threw70p at me and said buy yourself two lol

    Went to tesco and forgot to look for the money boxes!! I offered my nephew the 70p back but he said I should treat myself!! I have potted the 70p. My sister paid for my diet coke, as I didn't have any cash and was going to pay with my card so I haven't spent any money all day (and I am 70p in profit) :D

    I am off to the countryside on a work trip tomorrow.

    sold some of DS's old clothes on fb, made £7, potted £2 and will pot other £5 when I change it up. Think it might be time for a new pot as im a bit worried that if I fill it to much more I wont have any 'wiggle room' to get the coins out again and would hate to have to break my lovely little terramundi :eek:

    I had £1.02 to pot Saturday evening but put it in my holding pot (actually a purse I had in my bag)

    Today I didn't intend to do any shopping but the person I was with needed to shop at Asda and while there I spend the last £5 in my normal purse and also 40p from my holding purse.

    I didn't mind - I've ended up with another 62p to pot this evening.

    And my purse is refilled tomorrow for the final week in February.

    Hope you had a lovely weekend folks. I can't believe that Monday has come around so soon.

    I potted £4 last night and it hardly dropped at all. I know my tin is getting full...I think maybe another 1-2months and I won't be able to get any more in. Must start thinking of buying a second pot!
