    Default Penny challenge... Anyone want to join me?

    I started doing this at the beginning of the year. It's a pretty simple challenge. And lots of fun!

    This sounds interesting, I'm going to do a very small version of this to save cents for Christmas if I take the idea of the table for 100 days it should give me (if my figures are correct) over €50.without ever having to find more than €1 at a time. Wish me luck

    I'm so glad that I have stuck with this.
    I have around $400 saved so far.
    I'll be using this money for Christmas this year.

    I have a large tin in the cabinet above my stove.
    They know NOT to touch it or they have to deal with me.

    Hm...A very nice challenge. With its help yopu can really spare money. the main thing on the purpose to spare your money is to reduce the wastes for the things you don't need.

    I had never seen this challenge using cents. I tried the other 52 week challenge but at a certain point it was too rich for my pocketbook. I think I will give this one a try. I will start aug 1st. Every little bit helps.

    Printed out the chart and going to find a jar now to get started.

    I printed out the chart. When I use cash, I save the change and throw it into a bowl. After it's built up a bit, I count it out and add it to my challenge jar. I know I'm behind, but so far, I have just over $110 saved. When I realized it was going to be hard, I started over with what I had saved and marked off some of the larger amounts first. It made me feel like I was getting somewhere. I had found a jar in the closet and cashed that in to jump start it.

    found a jar. i have a bunch of change saved so i might just put it into this challenge
    and mark off the big amounts first as suggested.

    i marked the chart by weeks and added up so i know how much to put in the jar weekly.
