Saving for Christmas 2022 - £1 a day challenge

🎄 Getting ready for Christmas 2022 - save £1 a day challenge 🎄

I know a few of us have enjoyed doing this challenge over the years so I thought I'd host it again this year, please let me know if someone else has already started, if not here we go

The Aim: To save a £1 a day from 1st December 2021 to 30th November 2022. How you save your £1 doesn't really matter, whether it be a £1 in a tin, an on-line account or anywhere else that suits you.

We will open our tins or have access to our accounts on 1st December 2022 and declare total amounts saved.

Then it's spend, spend, spend for Christmas 2022 on whatever you like.

You soon get into the habit of putting a £1 a day away and just think this time next year you will have a healthy chunk of money towards the expense of Christmas

If you would like to join in pop your name down and the amount you are aiming for, I will allocate a number for you.

Please note, I have copied some of last year's information for the beginning of this thread.
