This is a great idea! Please can I join?

We're off to Florida in February 2013, so only a few months left to save. We have budgeted some spending money in our 'wages' budget, so the jar won't be all we're taking. I had a nice little windfall of £300 from a tax rebate come through a couple of weeks ago so that's going towards it as well.

£4 in £2 coins went in to the pot, and the twenty quid I got off eBay has been turned into dollars...

Sorted out my parking pot in my car and took all the 5p and coppers out then did the same to my purse and sorted out my work tip pot.
So chucked a handful of loose change in the pot. No idea how much is in there at the moment but my bank savings 'pot' total is on my signiture. Hopefully the two combined will give me a good chunk of spending moolah.

I just sorted out the money that I'd been putting in the ''pot'' because it was getting too heavy, so I've sorted out all the coppers out and put them in a separate container. Anyway I couldn't resist counting the money that I've saved since I started doing this. I am absolutely amazed that I have £302.86 and this is just from putting money in there that I would've spent on things that I have not missed at all!!! So I'm really motivated now!! We've got just over 10 moths left, so I can't wait to see how much more I can save. I don't think for one moment that I can save this amount of money every month or so because I had over £100 from Quidco that I put in there plus money that I won on the bonus ball at work, but even so!

Oh I'd like to join this. We already have a toy story saving jar with about £60 in change. Really need to start putting more into it.

Good way I've found of saving money is to leave all of my bank cards at home when I go to work. I was wasting money on things I really didn't need when I brought then with me. I've saved between £10-20 every week that I've left them at home of there's something I know I'll need I just bring enough cash to buy it.

I have found the same, RE the bank cards, I was going to Asda twice a week and then spending £7 a time on JUNK.

I am now about the same a week richer and thinner too!
