    £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.

    have been collecting quietly and bagging them up and putting them away. I think I now have 3 bags so £30 and I think about another 6 loose


    I am halfway to getting the stones for my driveway, I use my card all of the time and struggle for change.

    That's good going taskey.

    I'm the same with using the cards, need to get more strict though so will lift cash out for each week and that will also help with the change situation!

    Belated thanks for signing me up.


    I'm chucking 50ps into the same jar as my 5ps. A cuppa at work is 50p so that is helping the effort . I haven't counted but easily stashed 10 or so already


    Hope everybody's week is going well. Lx

    Hello lovely,

    Yay to the addition to the pot.

    I've just been throwing all mine in a massive jar with the £1 and £2's.

    I've decided I am going to spend mine on a cover up tattoo, got a consult 28th July 2018 - eeeek!

    Sure you can.

    Yeah I do get that, as soon as I decide to start saving £0.50's I hardly get them

    We will get there.

    Have been quiet for a while. Our tuck shop do chocky bars at 40p. So naturally I have to pay in a pound to get 60p change. I make sure there is a 50p first before I buy lol
