    :rotfl:Oh,I am going to be so busy potting this year :j:j.
    When I first set up my business I used to be paid more often in cash.Now it is mostly by BACS,but I still get paid occasionally in cash.Looking for something to pot(because I haven't spent for a couple of days),I found a bag of coins.So before I go to bed tonight,I have lots of lovely coins to pot: my first £2 coin for the challenge :money:,5 x £1 coins,7 x 50p pieces,and another 50p (20s and a 10).BLIMEY-just added it up: £11 into the pot :eek:.


    Is it time to open our pots yet,Sue?:rotfl:
    SPC #36 :staradminx 8.SPC7=£751.10 SPC8=£651.04 SPC9=£843.00 SPC10=£872.76
    Pinecone £301,Valued Opinions £10.50





  • Potted some loose change today:j the pot sounds so empty at the moment:( but that will soon change:rotfl:
    There is always light at the end of the tunnel

    I've got a long journey to reach it

    But I will one day with a little help

    Did a bit of shopping yesterday and the shopkeeper could only give me £4 in 50p's. They've all been potted :D My tin sounded really empty noisy though when they went in!

    Naughty shopkeeper, Dragon Lily! :D If he and others like him do the same you won't be getting that empty sound for much longer!!!! :j

    Oh no, Daisychain! :eek: You can't do THAT, you're a saver through and through.....or supposed to be! Discipline yourself with....."do I need it?" NO, you don't answer yes!!!!!! :rotfl:

    Another £1.30 in the pot! Been in my pocket for a few days so I figured it should go in!

    You made the right decision, Suz! :j Unlike her above she'd have bought ruddy sweets with it!!! :(

    £4.60 added today :) DS2 has announced he is buying his own place, saving enough for a deposit at the age of 21 makes me soooo proud! I need to step my game up and do some serious saving to help him fund the move xx

    Such a wonderful and exciting time for him, Freysmum, not easy for you though. Still, at least Mum's going to help him, he's a lucky lad! ;)

    Good for you with the sale, jakes-mum! Oh dear, you poor DH ;) Kids eh!

    WOW, a penny roadkill, curly??! :eek: Good for you, they're rare these days, folk are sooooo tight with their cash. :( 10p too, not bad at all. :D

    You ARE doing well, TheDapster. Don't stop for Heavens sake!

    Some really great saving going on, everyone, keep it up and hold on to the excitement you're all feeling right now and you'll be potting so well all year!! :dance:

    To your question, Saver-upper - a huge NO!!!!!!! :mad: Enough of that or you'll start jakes-mum off as well, and we all know how she gets!!! :p You've done well today, so keep right on saving!

    That's the way to view it, boobiebonboo! Fill it as fast as you can.
    Enjoy a good night's sleep, Potters....you've had a good day with your pots so rest well! :dance:

    Hello there, Potters, a very good morning to you all. Keep potting and remember...you generally won't miss a few coins, but if you're unsure then bring that "Holding Pot" into play (see the 1st post). Special {{{hugs}}} for all those who need them - though I hope you soon won't! ;) Take care all, and keep safe and healthy!

    Hello again, 32b3! I hope your time away was just as you'd hoped for and that you thoroughly enjoyed yourself. See you later.

    It's lovely to see you Christen SPC 9, skilly, hope to see more of you this year perhaps?! :D
    First coins in today totaling £2.31.

    Very well done, frasersmum, you're away with this year's savings now - keep the coins flowing in whenever possible! :j
    Have a really good Wednesday, SPCers....and put all coins possible in your pots - you won't regret it this time next year!!! :dance:
