Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves

Some of you may know that I'm going to Los Angeles next February. I don't think that last sentence actually expressed my excitement, so let's try that again. Some of you may know I'm going to Los Angeles in 68 days, 23 hours, and 34 minutes, with my school's media department. I. Can't. Wait. In fact, before I got my job at Sainsburys (reppin' the Bakery 2k11) my mum bought me a money box, which was shortly after labelled as the 'LA Fund'. Myself, and other members of the Buckley family - including my Grandma Dulcie who had a few too many glasses of wine last Christmas - have been donating to the 'LA Fund' for the last 365 days. Tonight, I just had a sudden urge to open the Cars themed tin.

So I took to opening the tin with the help of my trusty tin opener. Please excuse the pyjamas, it is Friday after all. Anyway, you probably just want to know how much was in there. So, as of the 2nd December 2011, I have saved a grand total of...

Not bad huh? And I still have the other money box to open on Christmas day. I recommend everyone to go out and buy a money box, just put the odd pennies and pounds in once in a while. Who knows, you may save up a pretty good amount of money. Go on, I personally challenge you!


  1. Well done on saving up so much! I would have opened it a long time ago! I think I have about 20p in my piggy bank... xxxxx

  2. Thank you! I've resisted the urge too open it a few too many times, but I'm going to LA in about two months so I just wanted to know how much I had in it. xx

  3. whuuuuut. you can do so much with that! i'm really curious what's in the other box now:)

  4. Ahhh I know! Definitely going to splurge on so much in LA x

  5. You have just literally reminded me that I bought one of these money boxes, although I might have to put wrapping paper around it to cover up the fact its got santas all over it :) xx lovely blog followed oxo
