* transfer of HBI shares have been delayed. We will catch up soon!
We're going to be here every Saturday through the year growing a little savings honey pot, if you have plans for saving or getting to a different place this trime next year - maybe $5 Hive by the end of the year 🤑?
Whatever it is, stick with Susie Saver through the year and we'll get there. Along the way, we'll share lots of tips and tricks for saving and how to get the knack of making your money work for you and not the other way round.
Let's Get Started
We're using the 365 Penny A Day Challenge framework for the Saturday Savers Club. We're aiming to save £667 worth of pennies by the end of the year.
You can use the sheet below to track your progress:

Okay, let's check in ...
1. Check Progress
Each week, we're going to check in through this post and see where we are up to. Our target for today, 23rd January, was 140p. Next week, we'll be saving 189p and by Saturday we'll have savings of 329p.
Each week, I'll be buying Hive for @susie-saver's account with the pennies we've saved.
Here's this week's results - 140p buys 10.12 Hive.
Look how quickly the account is growing! Twenty Hive in four weeks!
How much did you save this week? Did you meet your target? Or did you save even more?
Being accountable to another person or a group is a great way to motivate yourself to save (or anything you want to achieve). Of course, you need the right kind of people around you - ones that think what you're trying to do is worth doing ... or at least fun 😁.

2. The Golden Pig Tip

Every week, we're going to share a Golden Pig Tip for saving. By the time you've tried them all you'll have £670 saved.
This Week's Golden Pig Tip
Last week's tip was to keep track of your expenses, write them down. Saturday Saver @metzli posted a great tip for doing this:
keep separate accounts for different things
Tracking your expenses when everything is in one bank acclount can be very difficult. In @metzli's tip, we learned about a keeping a separate checking (bank) account for groceries, and @metzli has another for entertainment.
This is a great idea!
We also had a question from @gillianpearce about buying crypto. So we are going to give you another Golden Pig Tip!
The Penny A Day Challenge is about compounding (adding another penny more to the amount you save each day). You can also take the total amount (66,700p) and divide it into 52 equal weekly amounts (1,288p or £12.88) and use that to build your savings. Just buy £12.88 worth of crypto each week @gillianpearce and you will soon see a big difference!
What's your favourite tip for starting to save? Leave it in the comments below for a chance to win HBI shares.
That's it for this week. Hope you've enjoyed it and look forward to seeing you next Saturday with progress so far and our next Golden Pig tip.
