    Added £2 to the pot today - it doesn't seem much but believe me it really comes in handy in December. As well as the savings pot I'm also buying one present per month.


    Love this challenge - I haven't been in debt for the last 2 January's, going for 3 times lucky in 2018!

    Hello!!! - First of all huge apologies for being MIA again for so long. Unfortunately, I'm still spinning plates with job, parents, husband, working away, children, pets etc. etc. and seem to have little or no time to myself.:o


    I am amazed at everyone's totals, they are absolutely fantastic!


    Keep up the good work we are almost at the finishing post now - all totals updated where requested.
