Hi All
Welcome to the Virtual Sealed Pot Challenge 2020

I have ran this thread since 2016 and I have motivated a few people on here over the last four years so I decided to keep going with the challenge.

It has been a very successful challenge for quite a few years, so many thanks to Spam.Jam, Palema, Flat Eric, Keza and Nix143 who have run previous challenges.

Below are links to the previous threads if you wish to have a look.

VSP 2020 will start on 1st January 2020 and run till 31st December 2020 but some people stop earlier in November as they start to use their pots for Christmas presents or bills, this is okay too.

I will try to update the spreadsheet as often as I can, could you put your challenge numbers in your signature so it is easier to spot any declarations.

Good luck with VSP 2020, looking forward to beating previous years targets.

    Every Friday (Or whatever day is easier for you) the aim is to transfer the pounds and pence to round it down to the next nearest £5 or £10.
    So if you have £36.78 in credit you will transfer £1.78 or £6.78, or £20.04 in credit you would transfer £0.04 only.

    You then can either send me the total transferred for that week on the update form, and I will add each week or wait till the end of the month and submit then with a total, but could I ask you use form as well as adding your figures on here.

    This is so I don't miss any updates as some challenges move quickly in posts and pages and would hate to miss any amounts.

    **Some banks do not allow you to transfer less than £1, if this is the case what I tend to do is note what the money I have left that week then add it in the following weeks transfer.

    For me: The 'Virtual Sealed Pot' is a savings account that is attached to my bank account which makes it easier for transfers (I transfer on payday each month) but due to the faster payment system it doesn't have to be with your bank as all funds transfer instantly or within 2 hours, being a virtual pot i find I'm less likely to take any money out as I do the transfer and forget about it till the next month.

    Anyone wishing to join, please just ask, you're most welcome and it's NEVER too late.

    If you have been part of any challenges previous years and wish to keep your number or you have a lucky number you want that is fine if it's free otherwise I will assign numbers from the beginning to keep things tidy

    Good luck and roll on 2020.
