    0.50p savers 2018 2nd Jan 18 at 3:28 PM
    Hey all,

    Continuing on from last years challenge we will be running the 0.50p savers again in 2018.

    Link to last years thread - http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5572955

    If you would like to join in let me know.

    I am adding my own reason in for saving these 0.50p's so you can feel free to do the same if you want.

    2nd week of house arrest, nothing to add, sigh. Back to work this week and need to pop to the shops at some point so hopefully this week will be more rewarding.

    I swapped change with a friend so have 2 more. I think they think I am a bit bonkers but will be worth it heading to the bank and paying off the credit card that annoys me the most!

    Thank you all. xx

    Yay PSL.

    I've found my coin purse so started filling that up again and when it's full I empty it out into my banks.

    Got a couple of 0.50p's in there!

    Decided I am going to cash in my jars to get a cover up tattoo, contacted someone to ask for a quote!

    Wow Dolly you're so brave. I got one at the end of last year. Never wrote about it on my debt diary. I would love more but it was painful! And the tattoo artists won't advise or calm things down - they just think the bigger the better!

    If I didn't have so much on my credit card I would be using the 50ps for so many fun things. But a long road ahead!

    Och I'm the same with the credit card but you know what I am doing it anyway!

    I have another couple of 0.50p's in my purse today!

    Really making a lot of effort in this now that I have a goal!
