    We're going away this weekend to Bruge for my sister's 40th birthday and today I exchanged our £s for €s :D. I have potted £1.76 change from the exchange.

    Hopefully I'll come back with some change that can also be potted (once exchanged back of course!) :j

    Hello Potters - lovely to see you back Sue-UU

    Major disaster was averted over the weekend, thank goodness. As I may have told you before, our family only arrange a Secret Santa for Christmas. I was speaking with my DS and his partner and he asked for our help because his partner had my FIL for Secret Santa. No, I say, I have FIL and I have already bought him a present! Oh dear, when I checked, I was supposed to buy for MIL not FIL!!!!! All sorted now, we have swapped as I had already bought something for FIL. Imagine DMIL on Christmas morning if she had nothing and DFIL had two presents :eek: My popularity would be in short supply, I'm sure. Lesson to be learned from this - check and double check my Secret Santa person :rotfl:

    Nothing much to pot today apart from 1p, but, hey-ho, every little helps. Enjoy your week, Potters.

    Hi everyone
    Well my holding jar came in handy today as I had a vets bill that was unexpected, it wasn't a lot of money but the holding jar made it easier, trouble is it means the holding jar is nearly empty now - ah well that's what its all about.

    Thank you for my number!

    I've only put the odd pence in this week so my pot was sad. Then the window cleaner came and I got a £2 coin in change! The pot is feeling a bit more cheerful!

    No 133 checking in... Found a couple of 5ps in the car so they've been potted. Also I got £1.77 cash back on my bank account this month, so I've potted the cash amount as well. I have some scratch cards to cash in as well, and that money will be potted when I get it.

    Hello everyone :hello:

    I potted £2.05 yesterday but most of that went into topping up my cash bags from emptying SPC 12. So very nearly there with some of those bags! I took more housekeeping out yesterday to cover the Christmas groceries etc so hoping there may be a little left for the pot! We get paid again before Christmas but I ignore it and do not allow myself to touch it until “normal” payday, although I will have to a couple of days before this as my son is going round to a friends for lunch so I’m going grab that shopping window of opportunity on my own; can’t believe I’m planning my life for post Christmas already :rotfl:

    How is everyone. How are you getting on Sue?

    I have been busy doing nothing this week, which has been nice. I have been potting away too, so all good.

    I can't believe we have already done a month of this challenge, doesn't time fly when we are enjoying ourselves.
