I've found a creative money saving challenge online that might be fun for others to try as well.

All you need is a jar/savings account and a pack of 52 playing cards. Each week you or your children can draw one card. The number or the amount it's eqaul to is how much you put into your jar or savings account every week.

Here is the original post about the challenge.
It comes with the cheat sheet of the card amounts.
home made home card deck saving challenge

If you'd like to join just simply post and draw a card.
Feel free to post your weekly amount/progress/challenges/motivation.

You will all get a number so we can see how much we've saved as a group.

Good luck guys.

    Hi,

    Lastly how did you get to figure of £33.00 to go into your bank ?

    Hi! Thank you for joining.
    I'm going by the list in the original blog post... only doing it in pounds not dollars.
    I can create the list again using pounds if it is easier? then post it here so you can all see
    rather then going to a different site each time?

    Anyone can join, Westie983!

    I will have to wait until next month to start this properly.
    I'm a little bit tight for money right now thanks to an expensive phone bill
    :eek:

    Good luck everyone!!
