Your most welcome to use this idea, I lost another 1 pound this week so I've just added £1 to my tin. I hope to loose at least 2 stone by feb, more would be nice. Lost 6 pounds in 3 weeks

Just saved £1.50 in the dry cleaners by asking for NHS discount so that's going straight in the tin. Glad to see everyone is doing well xx

Ok scrap what I said before! I have less than 4 weeks to go but want to see just how much we can save in that time!

I've had two pots before, I think one had £800, the first had £1200 in it!

The new one was only bought a little while ago so I think there's only about £100 ish in that one BUT my children all have one too and they've had theirs for a while!

My baby boy's one is smaller than ours his is almost full! My other two children have theirs around half full, so I'll add everything we've all got together just before we go :D

Can I have a number? We leave on the 10th of October 2012, we'll be smashing the pots a few days before!

Stole all the loose change out of hubby's wallet & added it to the pot. Don't worry he is used to it.

Not managed to save any more momey.
I don't use cash most of the time so this is proving really difficult.

Just curious as to which dry cleaners that you used? I didn't know that any dry cleaners gave a NHS discount!
