    We would, but it actually works out cheaper to buy a built house

    Flights aren't as budget as they used to be, but still reasonable, not cheap at Christmas though. Ugh.

    But we have to go back to see family anyway, so it is whatever it is.

    Yes, I have been paying into mine for 23 years now.
    Since I have more expendable money lately, I have been increasing my contribution by 1% each year and am now at 5% with a 2% employer contribution.
    I'll continue increasing until I'm at 8% which will be 3 years.
    I believe in 2019, my employer will be required to increase to 3%, giving me an 11% overall contribution plus government money.
    We are also currently costing up buying a property in Eastern Europe to diversify.
    And my metals will just sit there too now, I'm unlikely to add to them unless there is a significant downturn in price.

    Also, personally I'd want each domino hallmarked.

    Another cool app I found. You select the date you want to save by, how much you want to save, and if you want the amount to be taken out daily, weekly or monthly. It then withdraws this amount automatically from your bank and puts it into the savings account for the thing you are saving for.
    You can also make groups and save for things.
    Note this is UK based. Funds are held in a segregated Barclays Bank account. 
    I thought it wasn't pretty cool app

    @RareAGstrikes - do you have any connection to the website you keep linking to?
    Just seems like the constant link-building is a bit of an attempt at SEO

    I love the idea.

    I'd want standard size dominos and let the weight be whatever it would be.

    Silver, with pressed centre line and recessed black dots.

    Lovely.

    I don't want to seem patronising, I've never done what you're doing, but you're getting much better at your pours!
    Practice makes perfect. Well done.

    Two out of sixty isn't too bad, there are others with very tiny spots but these two were by far the worst.

    Overall, pretty pleased to be honest.

    Two like that, some others with tiny spots, but overall not as bad as I imagined.

    Continuing from here as it's not a deal and is about the QB capusles
    For anyone wanting something cheap, Andy/Coin Gallery have some caps for 50p or so delivered for a roll of 60.  Just bought some to check out and are a decent fit and quite thick.  Not sure if Light House brand or not as they are quite thick and feel more like Linder/Scultz.

    Just a note for everyone. With the new pound coin being released in March. The old round pound coins will cease to be legal tender in October. Therfore anyone who's date ends after October needs to remove their old pound coins and get them changed/used

    Oddly enough, I counted mine earlier today.

    £446.60, pleased with that. Doesn't feel like I have saved £4.46 a day for the last 100 days!!!

    My tub is full, going to have to upsize.

    So for a update at the end of 2016, we have been saving for 113 days.
    I'm at 2385 SEK around £199.
    So keep on stacking and keep on saving
