  • i am in but i have a few side lines ~

    1) i have already started, i have a terr and only fill it with £1 & £2 (my 1p, 2p and 5p go into two seperate pots which then when full and once changed the notes will go in my terr) however i guess i have about £5 in there maybe less...

    2) my terr gets smashed when it full be it before the 12months or after

    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!

    I got mine for Christmas from my sister. I would definitely recommend asking santa for one ;)

    I've actually had to empty mine once already. I couldn't bear to smash it so I shook it up and down for about seven hours solid instead!
