Save your spare change!

Last Christmas I received a novel gift, a tin can with a slot on the top, into which you put spare change. I put the tin in a drawer and over the last 8 months I’ve been putting my spare change in. I decided to put odd amounts of change in, so if I had £3.25 in my pocket, the 25p would go in the can.

It got pretty full, and I couldn’t be bothered to wait any longer so I broke that can open!!

So each month I was saving I saved £3.59, which doesn’t seem like a lot, but it added up. The money has been donated to my Fresher week fund!
I would like to get another for Uni, but I cant seem to find any on the interwebs. If anyone stumbles across one, could you post a comment??
