#365daypennychallenge Money Saving Challenge


So it seems that everyone loves a little challenge so why not try the #365daypennychallenge with me.

I’m hoping that 2022 will be the year that we finally buy a house, but I also think that we really need and deserve a family holiday after the last couple of years which have been pretty shitty for most of us.


So what is the #365daypennychallenge?

Essentially you save a small amount of money each day starting off with 1p and increasing it by a penny each day. The best way to do this is by buying one of those tins that you can only open with a tin opener to save you from dipping into it for car parking change or similar.

I’ve created a #365daypennychallenge tracker sheet which you can print off and mark the days as you save.

We don’t stick to the chart as such, we just pick an amount each day and cross it off. So, for example, one day I might add in £3.65 and the next I might choose 10p. This works also if you’re a bit short of cash say towards the end of the month.

Print off your #365daypennychallenge Tracker Sheet.

I would love to know if you have any other fun ways of saving money.

Happy saving!

I also have a Chip account which is an automatic way to save small amounts of money directly from your bank account.



365 Day Penny Challenge

#365daypennychallenge – I’ve just found a post on the 365 Day Penny Challenge where each day you add a penny plus one. So it would go like this:

1st January = 1p
2nd January = 2p
3rd January = 3p
4th January = 4p
5th January = 5p

I think you get the gist. So each day you add a penny plus one so on the 31st December you would add £3.65 to the pot.

This would amount to a whopping £667.95 just by adding to it each day.

I think I’m going to have a go at this. We need to catch up a bit so we need to put away 21p to catch up as we’re now on day 6.

Whose with me?

We’ll link it up to our twitter account which you can follow at @babynotincluded with the hashtag #365daypennychallenge so you can count with us.

What a great way to save up for Christmas, Birthday or to put towards a holiday.
