£18 in coppers and 5ps. £80 in 2 pound coins. Nearly half way to the cost of the airport hotel.

$3000 changed up so far, we aim to take $200 a day so that $4600. My husband saves the spending money and I do everything else
Have £310 Christmas money and we won £47 on the lottery this week so £357. This is to go towards park tickets so a long way to go.

Hiya

Joining this a bit late so I hope it's OK.

We've got a terramundi style pot at home that we only put £1/£2 coins and notes in. So I'll be keeping track of that on here, and hopefully we can crack it open before our next trip and have laods fo spending.

I don't know what's in there so far at all, I'm hoping at least £200 as we've been doing it a while and there's a good few £5s and £10s in there. We put £7 in last night as we had change left over from the weekend that we'd have just wasted otherwise.

Well I've just opened my savings tin. I knew I hadn't put much in, just the odd bit of change from here and there I thought there would only be about £3 in there so was amazed when there was over £18 in it. The odds on the dollars i ordered came to just over £17 so I've put the rest in a new tin ready for our next trip which will hopefully be 2015, there should be quite a nice amount in there by then good luck with everyone else's savings and hope you all get 6 times what you expected in you tins lol!

I've just counted mine and I couldn't believe that I have £1,156 in there. All I've been putting in is change that I've had left over from the week, some b'day money etc. I was just thinking how much money I must waste on stuff that I've not even missed, if I've managed to save this money since this thread started!

At some point mine was only £18!

All the time now I think do I really want to buy that sandwich etc. or would I rather put the money in the Disney fund!

I think because I had the trip paid for and the spending money put away before I started the challenge the incentive wasn't there, it will be different this time and with longer to save there will be more in their, I was surprised how much was in there though xx

I've also got the money to pay off the holiday and I have almost all of our $s. So this is extra. I just got into doing this and once I did everybody had to look out for their change!
