    Myself, I put all of my £1 coins into a Coca Cola bottle and when once it’s full put the money into the bank.

    Everytime I use my card to pay for something (or maybe at the end of the day) I round down to the nearest pound and transfer into my savings account. Sometimes its 10p sometimes its 90p but it all adds up and feels like you're not actually doing anything. Then at the end of the week (a sunday night) I do the same but to the nearest 10 pound

    I have a similar system! I've got a jar where I collect all my €2 coins, which I started at the beginning of secondary school (almost 6 years ago), and I'll open it after graduation (in three months!!) and do something fun with the money. I think there's between €300 and €500 in it

    That is so cool. What do you think you will spend it on?

    Not worth it. What about your friend/ family and partner having to put up with this. The dental bill will soon negate this false saving in the long run.

    NHS foots the bill, son. Do you think I didn't think this through before determining to live an ascetic life?

    I don't waste money on any of these luxuries you kids were born into. Right now, I am stealing my neighbour's Wi-Fi and the laptop is borrowed from my local library. You might say, but you pay council tax so you're in part funding your browsing habits. Wrong, sir; I ignored the summons letters and my money is locked safely away under my mattress.

    How old are you? You have to pay for your dental treatment as far as I know unless you are a child. You are very lucky if you can borrow a laptop and that is a good move. Stealing Wifi- not sure mate. How much have you saved with all these moves? Is it really worth it?

    No, if you're on the dole or low income you can get your dental treatment paid for.

    Btw, I was taking the piss.

    I am actually an OCD clean freak, if that helps.

    Trust me, you get smellier people in Poundland. I remember actually gagging one time; it took Jedi mind tricks to hold it in. This sweaty hambeast had left the pertinent aisle 30 secs prior and I presumed it was now safe for humans, but its violent pungency ... lingered, like the Black Death.

    Keep it sensible please guys!

    What do I do to save money? Well, similar to others really - I put all my change (anything below 50p) into a money box and when it gets full I deposit it into my account. Or if my credit card needs paying off, I'll use it towards that.

    I run and if I do a single digit run, I'll put 50p into a jar and £1 in if I do a double digit run. It paid for my club membership last year plus a club t-shirt.
