    I'm up to 32 at the moment. Going to wait til I get to 50 and then bank it. There seems to be loads around the last few weeks. Shouldn't be long I hope.

    OooOh - someone bought my 'Sex Kitten' Money tin within an hour of me mentioning it here - was it any of you lot? I just would love for it to have gone to an MSE home... especially one of the club!

    I emptied my tin and had another 220 in there. Have since paid it into the bank and shuffled it across to knock a bit off my credit card balance. Signature now updated.
    Ever wonder about those people who spend 2 apiece on those little bottles of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backward.

    Well done Crawley_Girl! Must be a pretty amazing feeling!

    I am trying to be good this year - credit card at £0 and anything I spend on it with Egg Money card I put straight across to it from current account. For now, it's working!

    I'm up to £12 for about 6 weeks of tucking them away.

    Using them (and my "small change" jar) to save up for a (cheap British) holiday with my girlfriend, as its otherwise not budgetted for.
  • woohoo_postingid
    I'm doing ok, just spent the £30 on a credit card. Not a lot of £2 coins around at the mo for some reason, but I just seem to keep being given 20p's

    I am up to 96 as the woman who runs the lottery at work (which I'm not in as I think its throwing cash away ) had 10's worth and she agreed I could change them on pay day for a note , she was well happy not having to carry all the cash about , so now I'm desperate to get to 100 and then I can put them towards the debt - just two more pleeeeeeeese.

    However the down side is I told her I collected them and what the new total is - she was so impressed she is going to start collecting them so I have lost a route to collecting a few
