    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.
