366 Day Penny Challenge: 300 days update

The trouble with writing scheduled blog posts is that you never really know what will happen in the mean time.
I had started to write this post on Monday 17th October, all ready to be scheduled and posted live today - 26th October, but I've got good news and bad news.

The good news is pretty much what I had written in the next paragraph.

We are getting so near to the end of the year and to the end of the challenge, I must admit I have really enjoyed doing it. If you can remember from my last post I said I had fallen behind with making payments into my 366 Day Penny Challenge jar, but I have made it up and am well on target to saving £671.61.

After a quick tot up, I now have the grand total of £451.50

365 366 day penny saving challenge

The bad news is that since writing this post last week, my poor car had a rather nasty malfunction. The power steering went, and of course being my car it wasn't going to be a simple quick fix, oh no, it's always the worst case scenario where I'm concerned. The whole steering rack needed to be replaced, luckily my garage did get it fixed and back on the same road within a day, but I've had to use my saved up money to cover the cost.

So my 366 Day Penny Challenge jar is now looking sadly empty, however there are still 66 days left till the end of the year, and I will continue to save as I have been doing, so I reckon I should still have a good saving by the new year.

How are you all getting on? Are you still saving or have you decided you couldn't be bothered anymore and already spent the money? Or have you had to use it for an emergency like me? Let me know in the comments below.

Thanks for reading.
