Count me in Donna!

I'm going to wdw next September 21st.

I already have started two money saving tins.... One giant plastic bud bottle that I'm filling with coppers and silvers and one darth maul money box that I'm filling with £2 coins only that I get in my change. Can I start with these?

My DD and I have just finished decorating an old celebrations tin with Disney pictures. I've added some money to it today I was meant to be going out to lunch with an old work colleague but she ended up bringing lunch to me the money i saved went straight in the pot. It's a start but still a long way to go lol xx

We were given a terramundi pot as a wedding present 5 years ago ;-).

Instead of smashing it DH drilled a hole in the bottom when the time came to empty it 😉
We just seal up the bottom with cardboard now ;-)

We save £2 coins in it & DH puts in the odd £5 or £10 and we are both "forbidden" from spending any that we get!!!

Over the last 5 years we have had well over £1000 from it. :-)

It's all worth it in the end
