*****UK Spending Money Game No1*******
 
I am sure many of you need to save up some pennies for some spending money for your Disney Vacation so i thought of a fun way we can all do that.

So heres how the game works:

1. Request to join here and i will provide you with a Number, Please put the number in your signature along with the words ' UK Spending Game' so that i know your playing. Tell me what date you need to save your spending money by.

2. Find a Tin of any size, your welcome to decorate it if you wish (sealed ones are better as it stops you dipping in it). Would love to see photos of your tins :)

3. Fill it with as many coins/notes as possible and share your fun ways here with us each time you add money to it. If you find some money on the floor out and about we will call that 'RoadKill'. You can add any money from lottery wins, loose change at the end of the day, Roadkill, birthday money, money made from car boots. (But Wages Money is not allowed in this game).

4. Dont forget to share here with us each time you add some money and let us know where the money came from.

5. When you need your spending money for vacation, count it up and come back here and let us know the total and we will add that to your number.

6. If you fill one tin, your welcome to start another.

7. You can also include family members in this game just tell me who they are and i will include them in the game.

If you have any questions please message me.

Let the fun begin. :cheer2:

Aww I would have loved this but only have 4 weeks left and I already have a jar with some in! lol I've had two terramundi pots before and when full they both had around 800 inside!!

So that's my tip for everyone :D Got another one a few weeks ago and will be smashing it in 3-4 weeks so it won't be nearly as much but hopefully enough to cover the train fare to the airport :D

This sounds like fun count me in I'm saving up for April 2013. Can't wait to hear about how others are saving to meet the mouse!

catherine 09-08-2012 01:36 PM

I'll kick this off I just went around the house and picked up all the loose change and added it to the loose change that I had left from shopping so I'm off the mark! :thumbsup2

Tinkerbells mum your number 4, I will add you to the list above as soon as I am back on my computer, my iPhone doesn't seem to have the option to allow it.

Cool

I've added change to mine from today's shopping.

Beep 09-08-2012 07:06 PM

Sounds good, count me in!

I started a tin today for our September 2013 trip, had my hair done and got 10 off so that went in the tin.
Saved 12 at the supermarket with BOGOF and special offers so that went in too.
Got 6 from a scratch card so that got added.
Found a 10 note in my jacket pocket, hadn't worn it for months as it didn't fit so that went in too. The 10 note I mean, not the jacket!

Not bad for the first day :goodvibes

diddldonna 09-09-2012 05:47 AM

Beep your number 5

Well done on your first day saving :)

Thank you. i've started off very small, found 5p on the floor in a shop today so will add my first roadkill :rotfl2: i hope i can add more than that before April though!!

diddldonna 09-09-2012 11:52 AM

We got a free trip on the bus due to problem with the ticket machine so the money we would have spent has now gone in the tin today. (2.40) :thumbsup2

Tinkerbell1989 09-09-2012 02:42 PM

I'd love to join in but I've only got 4 weeks before my holiday. But when I get back I'll definately join in to save for my next holiday in December 2013!

Just a tip though... Check down those sofas! We did a spring clean today and found about 8 down the sides of the sofas (aswell as 13 pens, a chocolate coin and a pair of socks :confused3 )
