Every year for what seems like forever ... but is in fact only seven after reading back through my old blog posts ... we have had a Sealed Pot on the go.
Our very first one was back in 2011 and blogged about over at Our New Life in the Country (HERE'S a post from my old blog describing it all in more detail). Well last year our tin finally gave up the ghost so we decided to use my lovely old teapot as our permanent receptacle instead.
Of course after doing this for the last seven years we are well used to putting money in and not taking it out, so we were not going to stick up the lid ... the money wouldn't fit down the spout (not even 5p's I tried) so we were going to have to lift off the lid to pop all our loose change in anyway!!
All through this year we put in all our small change and virtually all of the £2 coins that we received. It soon brought the level of coins up.
And as is usual on 4th December, our wedding anniversary, we did The Grand Opening of the Sealed Pot.
After what seemed like lots of time spent counting we were both very impressed.
And our Grand Total was £386.96.
Now usually this spawns a Challenge ... but for once I really don't know what to do.
My money scrimping brain is telling me a £1 a day for 365 days challenge again, with the odd £21.96 being used to buy a starter store cupboard ... but do I really want to commit to this.
I'm thinking, pondering and mulling it over.
I'll let you know :-)
