    ********OCTOBER MONEY CHALLENGE ********

    About 86 days until Xmas.

    So if you put 1 in a pot each day that could pay for your Xmas week shopping.
    My jar which I started 1st Jan is my Xmas present money.I usually like to keep my money in the bank to get interest but with rates like they are I didn't think it was worth it.
    ********OCTOBER MONEY CHALLENGE ********-mwsnap697-2014-09-29-08_17_39.jpg

    I have saved up my Sainsburys nectar money and it stands at 119 so far.So Xmas this year is already paid for.

    I offered to buy Grand daughter's playpen so I've already spent 100 this month.But son said it can be his birthday present which is at the end of this month.

    Every time you go to grab that yummy cake off the shop shelf or that chocolate bar think do I really need it.

    Think before you buy.
    63 days until Xmas.

    Ooh - you've given me an idea!

    I have 10 years until I'm old enough to get my state pension. If I put 1 into a pot on each working day, I'll have a nice little sum to pay for a real treat - luxury holiday, for example - and if whilst I save, I invest each 100 in Premium Bonds, I night even get a bit (or a lot!) extra! Should I stop work earlier, I'll still have a bit of extra cash which I wouldn't have had, so thank you for the tip.

    I said to OH at the weekend 'I'm keeping my pot going until I'm really desperate for the money'. I know it was for Xmas presents but I don't really need it for that.So instead of putting in every month now I put 1 in every day.
    63 days until Xmas.

    I don't put a regular amount into my "pot" but I do save 5p, 20p & coppers. It's surprising how quickly it can add up

    I've just had an idea.When I use my Sainsburys money for Xmas food I'm going to take the equivalent out of the bank to put in my pot.
    Also going to do the same when I use my Costa reward card to pay for my drink.

    Actually thinking about it I could do the same with Tesco as I don't bother doubling them up to buy anything.I just usually use them to pay towards my shopping.

    I've discovered that you can buy Premium Bonds online using a money transfer (once you have a holder's number). If you do this then you only have to buy 50 worth at a time. So I can get my money in the draw quicker with less chance to break into it whilst saving up!
