Myself along with a number of bloggers from several different countries decided last December to take part in The Sealed Pot Challange. The rules, obtain a container that could be sealed, and throughout the year add coins to the pot. Most of the bloggers had a reason for saving, a special night out, theatre tickets, Christmas spending money, etc. etc.
Previously, I thought mine would be spent on Christmas, however, have now put the money back into the sealed pot and will add more to it during 2013. What I will spend it on has not been decided yet.
How much did I save in 2012, $155.35, it would have been more, BUT my pot wasn't sealed very well and I must confess my hand did dip into it several times. Only bills and silver coins were in the pot as the pennies are deposited in a goldfish bowl, which incidently is almost full, and is eventually deposited into my three youngest grand daughter's bank accounts.
