    Ok so I opened my main tin today. This tin is for pre-trip expenses so I ordered my new Boba carrier, will renew my passport and order a new one for DS, sending our dog to the vet to get his annual booster and kennel cough vaccines. There was €400 on the nose in the tin so theres enough to cover those things. Now I just have to save for the dogs trip to the kennels, our ESTAs, and a few small bits and pieces so the main things are sorted! DH and i will have a joint tin after Christmas.

    DH nearly gave away a £2 coin until he realised the error, snatched that out of his hand and added another 2 that I had so £6 in the tin.

    Had friends over at the weekend and they treated us to a takeaway so another £15 went in too :thumbsup2

    Not been on for a while sorry :sad2: 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
