    Morning all! I can't believe it's May! Where is the year going?

    #2 here. In April I saved £27.70. It was a tight month for me, hoping to make some more saves this month, but also having car trouble so...we'll see! 

    Thanks for running the challenge, @enthusiasticsaver.

    I really must make myself more accountable now. I've been trying to limit the amount of time I spend online, but that doesn't help with these challenges....must try harder.

    Welcome to May everyone and the numbers are looking good.  I have just updated the spreadsheet so the running totals hopefully should be ok although I note there are a few discrepancies so I wonder if some are earning interest and not declaring it? 

    The 365 Day 1p Challenge 2024 - Google Sheets

    I am updating for May as #1 a total of £49.80 and numbers now ticked off up to 219. Running total so far is £240.90. 

    For those who are doing the challenge month by month starting with January the monthly amount for May is £42.16. Have a great Bank Holiday weekend everyone.
