My Frugal, Penny Jar Challenge. The end.

Do you remember my penny jar from here (and here)? 

My frugal, penny jar challenge.

I counted out all my pennies and I have £41.37.

It's not quite the £70 I was aiming for, but who can complain about having £40 extra just from clearing out your purse every day!

I will split it in two, and take half of the pennies to the supermarket this month and half next, to help pay for my festive shopping.

I will definitely save my pennies up next year too.

Have you been saving for Christmas?  How has it gone?


  1. £40 is a fabulous amount - it just goes to show that those pennies sure add up.

  2. Well done Susie! My mom once saved up enough from coins to buy a diamond ring!! Did I already tell you that? Change adds up fast!
    Merry Christmas my friend!

    1. Wowzers, I think I would be saving my pennies for yeeears to have enough for a diamond! That's really impressive!


Thanks for visiting!
