You are all doing so well. Wish I could be bothered with all the Ebay hassle.

My thoughts exactly! I got a few junky bits for Xmas I might put on there, but if I know I won't get much out of it I always think, is it really worth doing??

Do you guys count everything you put into the savings? Or how is it done? Like we've made a really tight budget to save as much as possible, so it won't be much for me to put in my moneybox. I'll be transferring money to the savingsaccount as the pay comes in.

Anyway, I've started the savings in the moneybox by putting in 59p today

I think that most people just put in loose change, money they save by using a discount coupon, money from Quidco, b'days lottery wins etc. The idea is not to use money that would be considered coming from your salary. So I have my savings account for spending money that's taken from my salary plus I have my container where I put my other money!
