    The story (and photo) of my "penny jar" can be found here. It's quite special to me. (It's a "Facebook Note" so you may not be able to see it if you don't have a FB account, even though it's set to public...I'm not certain.)

    Ooh nice bonus Wendy! I have a loose change jar and a 1/2 can that I save in for each trip - actually it's no wonder I never have any money!

    I have a castle money box that I made at a paint your own pottery place. Everything under a 50p coin goes in it. 80+ so far.

    I've got a giant pig for my 2 coins and so far I haven't touched it. For the kids we bought the tins that you can't open without a tin opener and they decorated them with disney and florida clipart I printed off for them.

    Eveytime they get any money it goes straight in their tins. The problem is Gethin is obsessed with filling his tin, everytime you put any money down he squirrels it away. The cute thing this is though he says his money is to pay for all the food on our trip, bless him.

    At the minute the kids are doing better than us I think. When it was Gethin's birthday all his friends at his birthday party bought some dollars from our local Tescos. At the end of the day he had $130 in his cards rather than presents. Not bad eh?

    It's all done I've just ordered our money, I got a fairly good rate so I thought it would be another thing ticked off the list

    We did that a few years back when our friends were going to WDW, everyone gave the girls dollars, they loved having their own money to spend on holiday
