My savings are very slowly going up. But then I have 3 savings 'pots'.

One as a e-savings account joined to my bank account which I put anything under a fiver in there whenever I log into my banking online - £69.14

An actual jar for shrapnel (anything under a 50p) from car, tips, purse, etc etc - ????Who knows????

And a proper savings account - £400 (from wages every week)

I've just emptied my purse of the change that I had left from the week and it added up to £15.11. It amazes me how much I can save when I consciously make an effort not to buy bottles of soda and coffee etc. the money soon adds up!

I don't know how you all save so much!

How can I save more?
I am single (living with my sister), minimum wage job as a waitress and most of my money goes on bills.
I save my tips up which pays for some of my petrol but throw the shrapnel into my savings jar, I save £10 a week from my wages and put it into a savings account, and I put anything under a fiver into another savings account whenever I log into my e-banking.
I also knit baby cardigans for my mums business and she sells them for me, but it is slow going...I'm not a very fast knitter. lol

Some of the things that I've been doing are: I think about what I'm buying, for example a soda and decide would I rather have that or put the money in the pot! I've started going into town on a Sun rather than a Sat as it's free parking. If I have a coupon for money off then I put the equivalent amount in the pot. I walk instead of getting a bus (when it's not too far! ) Any money that I get from the lottery etc. goes in there. I think that I'm going to put my b'day money in. I actually didn't realise how much money I actually wasted until I started to track it for this!
Good luck!
