Week 17 of the 52 week Money savings Challenge: I'm breaking the rules today! I'm taking change from the money pot.
Yes, I'm breaking the rules! How? I am only have a twenty pound note, you can see it's different in appearance from the five pound and ten pounds notes. Those are made from some polymer plastic thing. Don't ask me why.
Well apparently its more durable and less likely to be copied and made counterfeit, but the new design is yet to be rolled out to the twenty pound and fifty pound notes. Anyway, I need flexibility in my life and this challenge is getting a bit too much with me looking for change, or putting in IOUs so I'm taking CHANGE. Yes, that's right, I'm taking CHANGE FROM THE MONEY POT!
So I'm putting in a twenty pound note which means I'm getting three pounds back. So after opening the money pot, I dipped my fingers in the jar and took out the three pounds coins.
I put the twenty quid (pound) note in the jar and that's all.
Now I have my three pounds change. Not sure what I'm going to be using it for though. Maybe I should dave it for next week so I only need to find £15. I think it's too early to do a count down. It will be interesting at the half way point, which will be week 26. Will I get there? Will I continue?
I've got one big to-do item on my list which is to open up an account. Yes, I keep on banging on about it in this blog post challenge but I really mean it. Perhaps I need a deadline? A delivery date? Okay I'll say by the end of June, that is midway into the year, and it gives me a couple of months to sort out.
The only issue with banking the cash is that it will harder to spend, like I mean harder to access, oh well, I guess that is whole point of savings.
