    Get my fuel at Morrisons, got my £5 voucher.

    My friend also works in Morrisons so my 15%, right in the tin!

    got about £90 so far saved in a robinsons bottle, will count when it full.

    Oh I'd like to join this. We already have a toy story saving jar with about £60 in change. Really need to start putting more into it.

    Good way I've found of saving money is to leave all of my bank cards at home when I go to work. I was wasting money on things I really didn't need when I brought then with me. I've saved between £10-20 every week that I've left them at home :) of there's something I know I'll need I just bring enough cash to buy it.

    I have found the same, RE the bank cards, I was going to Asda twice a week and then spending £7 a time on JUNK.

    I am now about the same a week richer and thinner too!

    My savings are very slowly going up. But then I have 3 savings 'pots'.

    One as a e-savings account joined to my bank account which I put anything under a fiver in there whenever I log into my banking online - £69.14

    An actual jar for shrapnel (anything under a 50p) from car, tips, purse, etc etc - ????Who knows????

    And a proper savings account - £400 (from wages every week)

    I've just emptied my purse of the change that I had left from the week and it added up to £15.11. It amazes me how much I can save when I consciously make an effort not to buy bottles of soda and coffee etc. the money soon adds up! :thumbsup2

    Thats so true Catherine! I added &euro;11.24 yesterday which was in the bottom of my purse after the week. I've just been letting it build up so I could add it to my tins :) Delighted!

    Got another £20 to add to the pot! I had a coupon for £10 of my grocery shopping and I found £10 note in the pocket of a pair of jeans that had been through the laundry! :hyper:

    I don't know how you all save so much! :worship:

    How can I save more?
    I am single (living with my sister), minimum wage job as a waitress and most of my money goes on bills.
    I save my tips up which pays for some of my petrol but throw the shrapnel into my savings jar, I save £10 a week from my wages and put it into a savings account, and I put anything under a fiver into another savings account whenever I log into my e-banking.
    I also knit baby cardigans for my mums business and she sells them for me, but it is slow going...I'm not a very fast knitter. lol

    Some of the things that I've been doing are: I think about what I'm buying, for example a soda and decide would I rather have that or put the money in the pot! I've started going into town on a Sun rather than a Sat as it's free parking. If I have a coupon for money off then I put the equivalent amount in the pot. I walk instead of getting a bus (when it's not too far! :)) Any money that I get from the lottery etc. goes in there. I think that I'm going to put my b'day money in. I actually didn't realise how much money I actually wasted until I started to track it for this! :scratchin
    Good luck! :goodvibes

    Added some more change today left over in bottom of my bag.

    I have to save harder as looks like I might be out of job soon :( at least holiday already paid for, mostly.
