New on PAS. This is an updated repost of an item first published in January 2018, but it seemed appropriate to publish it again just before the start of a new year.

https://www.poundsandsense.com/take-penny-challenge-save-667-95-time-next-year/
Hi,

I would just like to say that I did this. I started in January 2018 and did the reverse penny challenge. It is the opposite of the penny challenge. On the first of January 2018 I started with 365 pennies, then 364, 363 etc. It is quite tough to start with as it adds up to a lot of money. However I think it gets easier as the year goes on, rather than harder, that this is the best way to go. Once I got to June I decided to do it monthly as the money needed became easier . I created an Excel spreadsheet and ticked off each day as I went along.
So here I am 365 days later and with £667.95 in the bank :D:D:D
I did have a major glitch in March when my gearbox died and needed replacing but I managed. I took a little break and started again when I could. The thing was that I had committed myself to doing this and that nothing would get in the way.

Holly crap I did it :eek::eek::eek:

I just remembered something. On my wall in front of my laptop I have something pinned. I don't remember where I saw it but it is simple and true and applies to what I have just previously posted. It also applies to so much else eg. weight loss, studies, life in general.
My note to myself says:

"A year from now you will wish you had stared today"

Well, a year ago I committed to the reverse penny challenge and now I have seen it through. What shall I do with my £667.95 ??

Any suggestions fellow Shedders??

Presuming you have an emergency cash fund, consider a Vanguard fund and then forget about it...or use it as a matched betting float.

I'd probably use it as a matched betting float x

Lol. I would never have thought of that! I imagine it would be tough in January - when everyone is broke after Christmas anyway - but I do like the idea of it getting easier as the year goes on. Glad you achieved your target, and good luck if you try it again this year!

Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
So as a newbie here I'm still trying to get my head round it all & which is the way to channel my time. I've signed up to Prolific & Resondent thanks to @Jon
I've earned a few 3.00 on Prolific so far & waiting on surveys to come back from Respondent that I've applied for, so fingers crossed.
I have a few items listed on Ebay which I hope I will put to my 1st try at MB, scares me to be honest.
