This is the tin we opened this morning - bought for 99p from a Card Factory shop in the early months of Spring - I think they were getting it together for Mother's Day a bit early!
I liked the tin straight away because it made it clear whose money it was - mine!!
And this is the new tin - in Her Majesty's 60th year of reigning, I thought she was well-qualified to watch over my pennies this time. These tins are rather common at the moment, so there are probably some in a cheap shop near you, if you live in the UK!
And so, drum roll, please .......
£141.76 is the holiday spending fund!!
This is what we will have to spend on days out, treats like ice cream, and maybe a meal out on the last night or so. We have some visits planned to various attractions, and we are likely to spend most of it, but we can do so without a shred of guilt as this is what this money is meant for!!
