    Sealed Pot Challenge ~ 12 2nd Nov 18 at 12:06 AM
    Hello once again Potters and welcome aboard to all new members! I never thought we would have been running THIS long, but here we are starting off with "SPC "No 12"!!! The years have flown past since SPC's birth! We've had 11 fantastic money-saving years, all purely because of the determination in saving of you all - many thanks to you splendid folk who have made SPC what it is!!

    For all newcomers...yes Old Timers too - it's so very important to please read through this entire post to see what the SPC is all about, dates for counting up and our re-opening date etc.. However, if you haven't already done so, please be sure to Join the MSE forum first in order to be able to join the challenge. For ALL SPC members, please chat away on this SPC 12 thread about your conquests, money-saving ideas etc from Post 4 (below) onward, it gives encouragement to all, including yourselves as it keeps the motivation to save far stronger and gives even more ideas of how to save.

    For all newcomers - a really huge heartfelt welcome! We're a great bunch who just adore greeting more members to the flock. Please read through this entire post and you'll be aware of why SPC is so special. You all settle in straight away and become part of our saving family!

    The idea is to save as much as possible throughout the following year until just before Christmas - which this year (2019) will be to open our pots on Thursday the 31st October 2019. We save it in pots that we've pre-sealed to stop us being tempted to open them. Any spare cash can be put away, every day/week/month, whatever is best for you. If you have change left over after you've been shopping - pop it in the pot! After all why not! However small the change...the likelihood is that it won't be missed, and might otherwise have been wasted!

    Most of us put in the difference in that we've been saved on special offers etc, it's all saved at the shop so it makes sense to save it in the pot to mount up!

    Below are the basics for making your pot and sealing it.

    Firstly: Get yourself a pot, and remember - it doesn't need to cost much - if anything! Do please do your best to avoid plastic of any sort, thank you. With the emphasis being on saving money, your pot doesn't need to cost anything I.e a used sweet tin, coffee jar..extremely MSE!! *Next - seal it with sellotape and be sure to make a slit in the lid, big enough for a 50p to go in, that way all coins will fit. Perhaps if you wish, you can always take advantage of finding a cheap pot in the sales after Christmas, or put one you fancy on your Christmas list! You can always buy ready sealed tins from reasonably priced shops!

    It can also be interesting and challenging to make yourself a Papier Mach!! Pig (or any animal or object) etc by using Frugaldom's recipe, by clicking here then going to Post No. 597 of SPC 1 or by going to a totally separate thread papier mach! Animal here. After it's finished, seal as the instructions in the *paragraph above

    After selecting your pot, seal round the lid with sellotape. Again, be sure to make a slit in the top that is the right size for a 50p to go in! NB. If you make a Papier Mach!! Pot you will need to "operate" on it at the end of each challenge! Still, you can always have the pleasure of making a new one towards the end of the year, or getting the kiddies involved - if you're the daring type! The mind could run riot with what to model!

    Terrimundi pots are available in many shops and on-line, they're very attractive and another ready sealed way to save, and though the manufacturers and retailers would have you believe differently, you DO NOT need to smash them to remove your cash!! I've used mine for 11 years...and at the end of each year's challenge, hubby and I have a whale of a time, doing things the 'old' way by tilting the pot and using a knife! Though, a few years ago DH bought a 12" steel ruler in from the shed which is thin and broad and perfect for the job. So be assured that, so long as you go carefully, you CAN use them again and again....unless you drop the darned things!! They are costly though, but this is where your Christmas list comes in handy, though always keep a look out in charity shops too!

    Regarding the Sealed Cans many of you use, apparently the best way to open the sealed tins is, rather than using a tin opener, squeeze the side of the tin, where the seam meets and you can pop the seal and tip the money out that way, better still, turn them upside down and get the cash out as advised above with Terramundi.


    The term roadkill = any money found on pavements, parks etc; even in car parks or on shop floors etc.

    NB. A few notes of interest.

    1/ Any money which is inherited can not be included as savings. Likewise any money put directly into the bank cannot be counted as savings with SPC. Money from second jobs is ok, such as cleaning for Mrs Bloggs down the road/ taking in ironing, a part-time job or anything similar is ok to be saved. Any savings saved via Christmas Clubs can also be used in your SPC Totals, it's another way of saving for Christmas after all. Money received from cashback sites such as Quidco, topcashback etc can be included in your pots. Likewise, any money made from sales on E-Bay, Facebook, Surveys or similar can be saved.

    Also, it is possible to include all other savings from MSE Challenges with your SPC Totals i.e. the £2 Challenge as, apparently they aren't put down on the challenge threads themselves. Also, the 1p challenge is to be declared. If you're unsure, please ask on the thread, and remember - there's no so thing as a stupid question!

    Second incomes can come in many varied and very lucrative guises and anything such as that would be unfair to other members. However, doing a little job for Mrs Bloggs as described in paragraph 1/ can be included. Mostly the SPC is a challenge to see how much we can save during the year...mostly it's relatively small amounts which are saved from wages, housekeeping, good budgeting etc. Remunerations via the letting of second homes cannot be included in the SPC!

    2/
    Whenever you're in the dilemma of "ooh should I buy that?" If you don't need it, but just want it - leave it there and pot the cash instead, you'll be much more satisfied with the accomplishment, pleased with your self-discipline too. All too often, if I go back a second time I find I didn't even like whatever it was anyway!

    3/ You can ask me to put a Target on for you to try to meet (it's put in blue/pink ink alongside your name and number on the 2nd and 3rd posts below) but it's not necessary. If you do set one, but are unable to meet it, don't worry, at least you tried! A few people keep account of all they save, but most of us count what we save daily or weekly, then put it on the thread to help encourage others....ourselves too, then we pot it and forget about it and.... wait for the surprise at the end of the year!
    If you are hoping for a particular amount by Declaration Day but still want a nice surprise come November, work out what amount you would like to save, then work out how much you will need to pot on a weekly or monthly basis in order to achieve it. Save that sum regularly as well as potting any spare change after shopping, that way you are bound to come out on top and have a surprise come October!

    4/ Mainly SPC is a challenge to see how much we can save in a year for Christmas 2019. However, over the last 10 - 11 years we've had some members who have needed theirs at sometime throughout the year for bills, debts etc, and personally I'd far sooner they take the cash out for that than pay more interest or...miss a due date! You can always start again, even if it's getting later in the year, you can even include what you needed to take out on Declaration Day, after all, you will have saved it!! Whatever you need to do, don't worry about it - be happy and proud you have saved!
    Please don't worry about the amounts others save! We are all individuals with such varying jobs/incomes, each with different expenditures and commitments etc so while some find saving a real struggle, for others it's obviously easy. However, it's the pleasure each of us receives from our personal potting results - whatever you manage to pot, be happy with it, and be proud!!!!

    5/ If you wish to save for something special, a holiday, wedding etc then please do so, just please remember to declare it on October 31st. The most important thing, is that you are saving ...and hopefully not tempted to take it out unnecessarily.
    If anyone has any other queries, then please sing out.

    6/ At the end of the year (or when we've saved for what we wish) count up all your money saved and declare your Total either by waiting until the declaration date - or (if you've needed your cash for other things - by putting your Total on your MSE signature to remind you to include it in your full Total; that particularly applies to those using their money for holidays etc, but PLEASE remember to return to the thread on the 31st October to declare those Totals to me.
    Some members prefer not to keep too much money in the house and count theirs up every now and then to bank it, in which case they always pop the amount banked on their MSE signatures.

    7/ KEEP YOUR POT or POTS SAFE!! If you hide it, be sure to remember where you put it!!

    8/ "Holding Pots": To anyone concerned about putting money into their pot - only to possibly needing it later in the week/month: Why not use an unsealed pot or purse as a "holding pot" and pop the money in there first each day/week/month - then, if it's not needed (for car parking costs, little Johnnie's school trip etc) - put it in your Sealed pot so it stays put. Do that each week and it'll save you taking money from the bank. Discipline yourself to only take what's needed though!

    9/ "Where to take bags of cash at the end of the year?": Most banks will accept them providing you have an account with them. Remember also that most banks have counting machines, so any of you who really don't like counting money, take them in and let the machine do the counting for you; you'll get a receipt which you then take to the counter. PLEASE - DON'T EVER CHANGE IT IN ONE OF THE COINSTAR MACHINES AT THE ENTRANCES OF SUPER MARKETS.... THEY WILL TAKE AROUND 10% OF YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!

    10/ Members who do not return by two weeks after closing date will lose their numbers as, many people who sign up to the challenge then don't bother returning! To be fair, I think a lot get swept up in the excitement of it all, but then, for one reason of another, can't or don't wish to keep it up, but that then leaves me with a long list of non savers on the list which makes things very difficult over time. Any saving members won't be at all worried about this - but if those 'defaulting' (bad word, but...!) members remember, then - come on back and ask for another number, you will always be be more than welcome!

    On the 2 posts below is a list of members and their numbers, always display your No on your signatures please, that makes life so much easier for me and my DH when counting up all of our Totals. In December or thereabouts I declare the Grand Total of ALL that we members have collected, and what a terrific sight that is! Please declare your savings ASAP on or close to the 14th November please.

    Once again, we've just had an amazing year, let's keep it up and see what we can achieve this year. Good luck everyone and save well!!

    PLEASE take note everyone Thursday 31st Oct is the closing date for 2019, the day we declare what we've saved on the thread, kindly declare your monies saved within 2 weeks of the 1st, thank you kindly.


    It's Never Too Late To Join Us! and You Never Need To Re-join....well, unless you stop visiting us in November! However.......you can always return to the fold and be made very welcome!

    Many thanks for reading
    , Sue.

    I added some more change to my pot today so am now upto £52.60.
    I don’t think I’ll be able to add much next week as I’m already quite close to my overdraft and payday is 14 days away.

    Many thanks for helping me out, 3forholidays, here's another of those shiny gold stars as reward.


    The makings of another good day eh, Homegrown!!


    Well done whatever it amounts to, Purplemumof2!!!

    Lifeisforliving19 - Yes, that's perfectly ok and you're up and running again. You save as and when you're able, and always try to make savings on known brands...and pot those savings!! Just seen your latest post: Fantastic news, I'm really pleased for you!!! Fingers crossed it keeps going!


    Yay MushyPeas, a superb sum!!! Just as you are being motivated by the posts of others, I'll bet there are a lot of us finding yours a great incentive for sure!!!!


    Oh poor you, Vicky! Ah but... you have just the tonic necessary to aid your recovery!! Good old hubby to the rescue of course, along with your SW £5er!! Very well done on also seeing through those expensive medications..a humongous saving!!!! Even our GP told hubby NOT to get a specific (beginning with V for any muscular pains) saying the cheaper non specific brands are JUST as good if not the same! Well done indeed Vicky and get well soon!



    A brilliant amount potted, 32b3!!!! What with that and it being Friday, you're all set up to really enjoy yourself!!! Have a great weekend.



    There you are SPCers, read above and SAVE!!!!!



    Well done NannyG!!


    Well that was certainly a stroke of luck, weenapoops, congratulations!!!



    Good for you, Saving Glut, so often a little luck comes along at times!!



    I'm very puzzled, datlex?! However can you raid a Sealed Pot?! Not entirely sure what you've done but as I'm in a rush I reckon I can be forgiven.


    Wonderful savings and great news, Lucy!!! No doubt your DD2 will gradually get to grips with driving her new car, it's not long since she passed anyway and they always say, it's then that the proper handling of driving starts! So with the added problems of a new car it's all bound to have thrown her. At least she'll be staying cautious, wise girl!

    I know exactly what you mean about being a Granny and all the joys it brings, sadly my youngest is 12 but the 2 Great-Grandkiddies are now bringing such joy! Thoroughly enjoy it all Lucy!!



    It's a real help when members such as you help me out, Robin, and I'm really grateful. Excellent work with all you've potted, by golly you're doing marvellously, keep it up!!! You have a lovely weekend too.


    Super potting, Loz!! Don't worry about next week just keep up the great work when you're able.


    £15 added to our pot when DH & I arrived back from shopping, really chuffed!!


    Have a lovelyWEEKEND!! Save well if it's possible.

    Sue

    NB folks: Opening date for SPC 12 will be 31st October 2019


    Anyone wishing to join us, it's NEVER too late, so please just ask, you'll be made very welcome!

    Hi all,
    Hope your keeping well and had a good week.
    Been a tough week for potting most of the week only managing 15-30p each day mon-thurs. But today i broke a £10 note only to spend 80p. So i went really rash and potted the £4.20 change.
    Woot woot, happy potting

    Sue-UU - I think I speak/type on behalf of many potters, but I really do appreciate how you know many of our little nuances. I appreciate the fact that you respond to each and every one of us personally. No doubt you take copious amounts of notes - and you could write a book about our dramas - but it really does make it a fantastic online community. We're very lucky to have you - as are your family, obviously. So thank you.

    £1.51 potted. Bring on 31st October!

    Had to buy some anti-scratch guards for our sofa as our new cat is loving scratching them. Had a £2.50 nectar voucher so used that and put the money in my pot.

    Randomly found £2 in a sandwich bag in the car (no one has a clue where it came from) and £1.50 from my purse - £3.50 total deposited today.

    £6 potted yesterday - this was change from the Saturday shopping trip.
    A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realise how blessed you are.

    Sue-UU it is a reusable jar I got from B&M with rainy day fund on it. I have a few £10 notes in it, which I have swapped for coins which were in it.
