    The 365 day penny challenge 2019

    The 365 day penny challenge 2019 30th Dec 18 at 7:03 PM
    I started this challenge in 2017 but due to the pressure of a large amount of debt I struggled to keep up with it. As of this month I am debt free and determined now to save as much as I can to have a more secure future. I know some of you will be in a much different situation but we are all here for our own reasons.

    The aim of the challenge is to save 1p on January 1sr, 2o on January 2nd till the 31st of December where you would save £3.65. Obviously this make the end of the challenge very expensive so I find it better to just mix it up a little bit. If I have £3.01 in my purse, Iíll just mark that day off.

    At the end of the year you will have £667.95. Use this money as you wish. Pay off some debt, treat yourself or just continue to save it.

    Here is a printable chart so you can monitor your progress.

    Iíll keep this thread going even if Iím on my own as I want and need to stay motivated. If anyone wants to join me along the way you are more than welcome.

    Happy saving

    Hello! I would also love to join this challenge. I have £15 to live on until Tuesday (payday!) but I will start on the 15th with £1.20 to catch up and go from there!

    I have never been able to save in my life, so £600 by the end of this year would be huge. Will probably need to look at getting a piggy bank I can only open by breaking to stick to it!!

    Welcome to all new challengers. Wishing you the best of luck. I have added £75 today. I have recently moved house and am doing a bit of decluttering so have made a bit through Facebook sales. I’m adding all that to this challenge. Straight in the piggy it goes.

    Well done everyone. Making some real progress. Keep it up, this weekend is officially the weekend we all apparently break our New Years resolutions.

    Hello!

    Thank you for my number! #31 checking in with £3.56 and £3.55 for the 10th and 11th taking my total to £39.60

    Early night ahead of work tomorrow to earn some more pennies. Working a Saturday takes me home an extra 20 quid, then 40 on a Sunday. Just gotta keep the pennies coming!

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    I've put £50 in which was a refund so now £57ish. I probably won't put anything in now until Feb but I love it, love that I can do bits and drabs.

    Just want to say hi everyone

    loving this little challenge but have decided to incorporate it with another challenge, I'm also doing the sealed pot challenge but there's not too much going in it, so as my little jam jar fills up with my penny challenge I'm going to tip it into my sealed pot each time I reach the top, soooo that should mean by the end of the year I should have between £700 and £800
    £2019 in 2019 = £85

    I too have sort of merged the 2. I confused myself with both challenges but I've been potting money and enjoying this challenge

    Well done everybody
