    • Each task is worth 1 "point" . You will gain an extra 5 points for completing every task at least once.
    • Please update us at least weekly with your current 'point' status so we can include you in our weekly tally
    • Keep track of your tasks and how many times you have done them
    • There isn't a limit to how many times you do the tasks as long as it helps you to save moeny in some ways
    • You can include other challenges such as the sealed pot challenge, save 1 a day etc...
    • Try to mix your list up to help you avoid being stuck in a rut
    • Try to join in with our chats / coffee mornings as well as our mini challenges (Which won't always be money/finace based)

    Sorry I haven't updated much this month, will start again next month.
    I need some more manageable goals as I am struggling to do a lot of things at the moment.
