Hi guys

Not ever posted before as I have been a long time lurker:cool:

As you may have noticed there are many challenges within the forum which many people dedicate time to and stick to so......... I was thinking why not add another for the new £5 note!!!!!!!

My idea is to save all the new £5 note I get from now till next Christmas! It will work on the same principal as the £2 challenge.
If you get a new £5 note you must save it and not use it!!!!!

At first I think it could be easy as many are not in circulation yet so it will bed me in, obviously as we get into the new year and they become more abundant it will mean not spending them gets tougher!!!

I know its gonna be tough but at the end all the tough moments will be rewarded with a big pay off to go towards a debt or Xmas.

So if anyone would like to join me feel free to tag along. If we get a good number I will do the obligatory numbers list :rotfl:

BB
