Thanks for joining crabbie1 your no6 good luck in finding a jar or pot. A cheap way is to find a Pringles tube, wash it and sealed it with tape and cut a slit in the top also you get to eat he Pringles too.

I will join in too!

We have our trip in 4 wks so im saving right now for that although we stupidly didnt seal the darn thing and everytime we have needed change we just grabbed it out of that

Im sufe by now we could easily of had around £100 more if it wasnt for every body dipping in for lunch money etc!!!!!

Anyways ive now sealed the pot for the next 4 wks lol to see what we can save
BUT i will be making a much nicer one or buying one as soon as i get back so i can save our spending money for the next trip!
Ill start the proper game when i get back as Dh and I are hoping to do an alone trip next yr, we just have to know when our next posting kicks in! At least if it ends up being the yr after as a family we will have more time to save

Can I join too?? I am rubbish at saving money just spent the start of my savings on clothes at DLP

I actually started a tin off about 2 weeks ago, I have no idea what's in there so far. I've used an old Roses tin from christmas, dd and I sealed it with tape then decorated it with wrapping paper and covered that with a collage of wdw/Orlando inspired images from travel brochures etc I'm not saving anything less than 20p in the tin but have started a sub tin for coins less than that.

Also just commited to making some changes to save more for holidays, been 2 weeks so far of cycling to work again saving on average £4/day in bus fares and the biggie starts tomorrow ..... quitting smoking

I'd really like to join please. We are going on 19th October 2013. I already have a large sealed tin where I put £2 coins and £5 notes, I think there's about £60 in it, we also have a large glass bottle for 10p coins and under- I do a sweep of everyone in my house (and their wallets) before they go to bed each night!
Good luck everyone
