I received this gift last Christmas from my dear friend Gill. I promised myself that I would put a little bit of money in it each day, which have done plus all the bounty from down the side of the sofa and what I have dug out of the washing machine after each wash. There is always the odd 20p or 50p left in the drum along side the rogue odd sock and a collection of buttons.
Today we had an un-budgeted monetary crisis as my son's 13 year old car needed a part which turned out to be quite expensive. So I decided to raid my little money box to see how much I'd saved. I was pleasantly surprised to find just how much I had saved. Needless to say I can now buy the part Jamie needs, and I can still have a girl's night out! I like this saving for a rainy day idea, I think I will buy my sisters a little money box for Christmas this year, then they to can have a lovely surprise in October.
