And welcome to the
2ND SEALED POT SUNDAY!
What is SEALED POT SUNDAY ABOUT?
It's a great way to support each other over the year ahead by sharing our achievements for the week and 'getting to know each other' a bit.
Firstly-A bit of news, we have had MORE people join our MERRY GLOBAL BAND OF CHALLENGERS! They are very welcome!
Secondly I'm hoping to fill in a little bit more of the detail of our list.
I'd like anyone who has now chosen their goal to let me know!
At the moment we have 21 goals still to be chosen- TBC (To be chosen)-wouldn't it be amazing if we could fill in some of those?
I'm sure a goal would help focus any mind more firmly :)
Whenever I add a little change to my pot I gaze at that picture of the St. Charles Bridge and think....'I will get there!'
SO HOW HAS YOUR WEEK GONE?
My achievements this week have been:
1. I put the £10 my Brother in Law sent to me as a belated birthday present in my pot.
2. I put Mr Sft's change in the pot.
3. I put £2 in the pot as I am still chocolate free-I will continue to do so, as long as I abstain. The grazing has improved but could be better.
4. I put the change from my purse into the pot.
5. Save instead of Spend: I put the 29p (every little helps) from sending an envelope 2nd class rather than 1st class in the pot.
6. Save instead of Spend: This week I was lucky enough to receive a bonus from school. I felt the urge to go to our school work's do but resisted if I had I would have spent £35 on a ticket £10 maybe on drink and possibly felt the urge to buy a new outfit. Well I didn't go so I will put £10 in my pot.
Next week I hope to:
Save instead of Spend: Save the money I would have spent on chocolate and grazing snacks for my pot.
Save instead of Spend: I want to test myself and abstain from buying something I'd really like and put the money in the pot instead. I'm going into our nearest town on Tuesday.
Empty my purse at the end of the week.
Encourage Mr Sft to empty his pockets again too!
