    0.50p Savers Club 2019 19th Dec 18 at 9:32 AM
    Hey all,

    Continuing on from last years challenge we will be running the 0.50p savers again in 2019.

    Link to last years thread - https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5767122

    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.

    Dxxx

    Official MoneySavingExpert insert, 14 Jan:

    The idea of this challenge is to collect every 50p coin you get and save it for a goal. Eg, in the past MoneySavers have put it towards a new driveway or removing a tattoo.

    If you want to join, please post on this thread. Dolly Rocker will assign you a special number (eg, #01), which you'll then start all your posts with.

    If you haven’t already, join the forum to join in the challenge.

    Good luck everyone and thanks to Dolly Rocker for the original post!

    I have a money box set aside as my travelling fund for next year. I never know which shrapnel to save but from looking at this thread, 50ps seem a good idea as I often get them and they soon add up.

    I have also to joined the 20p challenge along with this in hope that I should be able to save a decent amount before we go on our travels.

    Good luck everyone!

    Morning Dolly,

    Thanks for adding me again

    I've already potted a few coins, hoping this year will be more successful than 2018.

    Good luck

    Hi there,

    I would like to join the challenge as well.

    My daughter has given me a money box in the shape of a camper van that she doesn't use.

    I've put 3 x 50p pieces in it today, so that's 1.50 for me so far.

    Am saving up for any little gifts I might want (namely Pandora!).

    I will try my very best not to dip into it!

    Happy New Year 2019 everybody!
