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

It's all worth it in the end

Added more £s to our fund! I was going to get a taxi which would've cost me a fiver, then I was going to buy a sandwich £2.50 but I decided to make one and then a couple of times I haven't bought chocolate bars so that I could put that money in the pot.

I went to lunch with a friend yesterday and she insisted on paying so that was about £20 saved and straight in the tin.

Someone gave me a car park ticket which saved me £5.50 - straight in the tin too!

Well done everyone, keep it up! This is just a great idea, it's really motivating me into saving and thinking about how I can get a few more pounds into my tin!
I've been selling a few bits on ebay and I've just checked my paypal account and I've made £42 so I'm adding that to my total so far!

This is a really good idea. I'm just starting a diet so I hope that you won't mind if I steal this from you! Hopefully it will motivate me to stay on track! More pounds lost = more £s in the pot!

I'd like to join you all. We are hoping to go back October 2013.

I have a terramundi pot which i've been collecting £1 & £2 coins in for about 8 months ish, it feels about half way full. I can;t wait to open it & see how much is in there!!

I also have a couple of the sealed tin can type money boxes, one with smiley faces like this which i'm using for Bronze coins and the other is a Cars 2 one which i'm using for Silver coins. I started these about two weeks ago so not much in them yet.

I will be adding to my pot with money from selling my junk on eBay, I will try to make hubby's lunch as much as possible rather than him spending a fortune in the canteen each day (I've added £4 as I made his lunch today) also if I save money on the weekly food shop etc.

Just updated my siggie!! I went to pay for car parking today and it was FREE so saved €3 and that went straight into the jar! I rooted through my old handbags and came up with lots of copper change and went through DH's jeans pockets - with his permission and got more change! So just counted it up and I have €13.25 to start off! Don't have a proper jar yet so I've got everything thrown in together but I'm getting two separate jars - one for the decent change, and another for the coppers. Feel great to have a start gotten on it!
