    Hi

    I'd like to do this please? I could do 50pence pieces, £1 coins or just empty the contents of my purse each Sunday (my new money starts on Monday). I think a terramundi pot might just hold it all!

  • I'm in. Though I don't open my current sealed pot until Jan (it will be a year in Jan). It should have £800 in it.

    Good luck

    I do this already, with my Terramundi! :T

    I put £1 and £2 coins in it. It's always going to be for something: It's been for a holiday, to pay off a debt, to buy a new sofa...

    by the time it's full, my debts will be paid off and I'll have a nearly-new suite anyway. But I love this. I have ne idea how much is in it, but it's going to be great when I finally fill it!


  • 1st of december it is. I already have like 55pound in my pot..but il buy a new one to make it fair and wont count that

  • I'll join mumzy..... OH brought home one of those giant whiskey bottles from the Legion last week, and once I've figured out how to get the plastic out the top, I'll use that! 1st Dec gives me a few days to try!

    I'll join this too - will use my son's terrimundi :) Also I will aim to then use the money for a family christmas treat next year as the aim of the pot was for happiness :) He'll be 3 and a half by then so will enjoy whatever we do!

    I actually think I can do this one! :D

    Perhaps I should get a different pot though and keep DS's just for his own stuff...actually think I will. Am off to home bargains tomorrow so will get one of those tins from there cheap.
    Thanks!
