i started putting 20p's in a jar, i used to have a vertical thing where it would tell you how much you're at (£5/£10/£15/£20) when i was a wee lad

you don't even notice it if you stick to just 20p's and before you know it you have 30-40 quid from nowhere

You now have to pay to park outside my gaff, residents can pay £120 a year permit. Fucking useless council ain't seeing my green. Parking a street up instead. They will have the last laugh though, when they make that street residential too, the dicks.

epic fail. dominos is cheaper, you aint doing it right.


you going to waitrose instead of aldi as well to save a farthing?

Really? Just took a wild guess, no idea what the cheap pizza places are called in London. Was going to say Pizza la Vita, but thats only local (2x 12inch pizzas for 8.50) Cool

I started doing this in January, emptied it this weekend cause I go on holiday to the states on Monday.

Ended up having just over £400, which would have just gone on junk otherwise…

Best thing about it was I seriously only thought I had about £200 in it!

The amount of times I come back from a night out with pockets full of change got stupid!

Good work, I put anything under a quid in mine. Most I had in it was about £100 once, but that was after a year of putting away.

Might start putting pound coins in as well.

It was a joke.

You really do suck the fun out of everything you come into contact with.
