The365 Day Penny Challenge

helejenkins1 Posts: 227 Forumite
A friend of mine has just started this challenge on Facebook and I thought it seemed like a fun way of saving.
I have started this thread to keep me motivated but if anyone wants to join me then please feel free to do so and I will start a challenger list.
Also if anyone knows of a simular challenge then please point me in the right direction as I have searched and can't seem to find one.
The idea of the challenge is that
Day 1- Save 1p
Day5- Save 5p
Day 100- Save £1.00
Day 365 Save £3.65

By the end of the year you will have saved £667.95.

I am not going to save in order of the day as it will get quite expensive as the year goes on but will do it according to the loose change I have at the time. I have started a spread sheet and will shade in each amount I have saved.

Looking forward to meeting fellow money savers :j

  • We put all loose change (20p or less) in an old whiskey gallon bottle and I have just counted and it came to £55 and this is from September. We don't miss this change wonder how much it will be if I left it for a year.

    I'm thinking of getting a new phone in the new year so will be looking to use this as a savings vehicle for that purpose. I too won't be doing it in order so that I might have amassed enough part way through the year.
