    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 :)

    Added a bit more yesterday, I didn't spend quite as much as I thought I would shopping so the change went straight in the pot xx

    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!

    Not managed to save any more momey. :worried:
    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! :offtopic:

    We hardly use cash too, everything possible goes on our Virgin Amex card so we earn miles! :goodvibes

    Aswell as my savings tins, I have a seperate online sayings account, so if I save anything on my weekly shop etc I transfer it from my regular account to my holiday savings account....basically a virtual savings pot. ;)

    Got two savings tins this afternoon - the kind you need to open with a tin opener so I can't get into the tins until they're full cause I'm a disaster for "robbing" from my savings :rolleyes1 but now I've no choice but to wait :thumbsup2 Love the idea of this diddldonna!! When I have all my savings for our next trip I'll have you to thank for it :flower3:

    I already have an online savings account and I put anything under £1 in there whenever I get paid, or log onto my account, but in 6 months I only have £57......:(
