We're exactly half way through the year now so I thought I'd let you know how I'm getting on with my 365 Day Money Saving Challenge.
This challenge was started at the beginning of the year and it runs right until the very last day of 2017. The idea is that you save 1p on day 1, 2p on day 2, 3p on day 3 and so on, until the last few days of the year you're up to £3.63, £3.64 and £3.65. By the end of this challenge you should have saved a total of £667.95.
I decided to do things a little different to this. I didn't want to be left with all the high amounts to save in December when there's lots of other things going on which require me to part with my cash, so instead of starting with the lowest amounts, I've tried to get the larger amounts crossed off and have also crossed off other various amounts.
Daniel's old pocket money jar was the first thing I used to save the coins in but I soon ran out of space in that, I didn't realise just how many coins this saving challenge would generate and I was soon on the lookout for something more spacious.
This tin, which once contained biscuits, is doing the job for now but I daresay I'll need something even bigger than this in time.
I must admit that Mick's the one who puts the most coins in, since I stopped working I just don't spend like I used to so I don't carry the same amount of cash around and I don't have the same amount of change kicking around in my purse.
I'm a bit surprised that we've managed to keep up with it but I'm glad we have as £667.95 will come in very handy at the end of the year.
Has anyone else joined in with this challenge?
