EDITED IN: NEW POST ON MY OTHER BLOG: 100 COUNTRIES BY 50
Our Challenge: As you know we are adding up our Sealed Pot savings each week to pay for our spending money in Brazil next year. Our hope is to have all of this in place by end of March, so we can move onto the next travel challenge for our sealed pot!
WEEK 11 has gone brilliantly! We decided to bank some of the sealed pot money and found out we had saved more than we thought!
STILL TO SAVE FOR:
Tipping: £39/£120-Good progress! Our 2nd Council Tax-Free Month should cover the remaining £81 of this. Waiting for end of Feb.
EXCURSIONS TO PAY FOR:
Rio-Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer):PROGRESS:£56/£86
£2.40 saved from taking own drink to theatre.
We are now pretty certain that the £30 we put to one side will not have to be touched and then we will have reached our goal by the end of the month!
We also have £16 of our reduced £70 budget left with 1 week to go!
ALL PAID FOR LIST:

OUR CURRENT TOTAL IS £1326!
At the end of Week 11 we have £111 to save to reach our goal (we are NOW 92.8% there).
I have also started another savings bar on my blog.
This is for money towards a sailing trip around the Maldives next February.
I will reward myself for healthy lifestyle choices. Hopefully the progress bar will go up steadily. I need to reach £170 to pay my holiday deposit.
HOW HAS YOUR SEALED POT WEEK GONE?
