    Save a penny a day 2018 29th Dec 17 at 12:38 PM
    Hi all


    I'm planning on following the penny a day challenge again this year, as it really kept me motivated to save. Below is the link to the thread from last year.

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5578213


    The basic idea is that you save:


    1p on the 1st of January
    2p on the 2nd of January
    ...
    £3.65 on the 31st December


    Your total at the end of the year would be £667.95.


    Personally I tend to mix the days up a bit more, i.e if I have £2.52 in my purse that's what I put in that day. I also found it a bit easier to try and get some of the larger amounts scored off towards the beginning of the year.


    Please feel free to join in.
    JAN - £208.56/£250 NSD-8

    Hi all

    I've popped in to confess that I have been slacking slightly with my challenges.

    Back on track now and so far I'm #2 currently at £40.00. Not a fortune but will be adding some more tomorrow.

    No more slacking

    Just checking in - I have 98 days worth (random days) should be on 127 so got some catching up to do! It's much easier not doing it in order as then I can just put in what I have in my purse - must start to get ahead a bit to hit my target
