    I think I am finished for this year now - an further £150 to add from by £2 coin tin, makes it over £500 overall. I can now start spending it!

    Thank you to Ellie and everyone else who has kept me on the straight and narrow :)

    A long time since I posted and update, I haven't managed a pound a day but have done better than last year. I have one more payday in November before opening the 1St Dec.

    £5 added to the pot to even it up,

    I have my christmas basket ready, I will press go next week, and wait for it all to arrive and then a mass wrapping session.

    I will not be adding anymore the pot so finishing on £400.

    I will wait to find out if Saving for Xmas 2018 is going to run.
