I've not been thinking too much about this over Christmas and New Year, now I need to get back on track!

Not been on for a while sorry but today I found some change in a coat and put an extra £20 I got for Christmas in there (don't get much for Christmas these days )

Going to really start saving again, bought my friends a disney tin for Christmas as they are coming with us and loved the idea - they aren't on here - don't know what they are missing lol

I just received £50 compensation from my bank, for a banking error and £125 from my FIL, so that's going in there.

If I need change for DDs bus fare or lunch money I take it out of the change tin and I keep a note of it and then when I put it back in I round it up to the nearest £. That way I have to pay a penalty for taking it out.
