its good to plan well in advance. we booked this comming trip last january, that seemed a long time to go. it does fly by, and i think it helps with the saving to have a date set:yes:

It's surprising how quickly it adds up Kate :yes: I started in November (I think) and I've got one of those huge plastic coke bottles which is just over a quarter full. Mind you if Chris leaves any coins lying around I take them:lol: It's got so bad that he actually says, "I've left some change on the bedside table - don't take it" :lol: :lol:

He calls me the Loose Change Monster :lol: :lol:

We are always raiding places that dh has left change laying around in - Isabelle's in there for the 2ps (she has her own pot so she can play the 2p machines in the arcades at the seaside) and i, well im not fussy so anything thats laying around gets snapped up for one of my many pots!! :lol:

Man I thought we had a long countdown.

We've got saving tins for the kids which can't be opened unless you have a tin opener. Everytime they do any chores we put some money in, of course that means I don't have much in mine because I keep putting any spare change in theirs. Also some friends bought them dollars to put in for christmas this year instead of toys and they'll do the same next christmas too.

At this rate the trip will be on the kids.
