Television savings

Television savings box

I recently received our new TV licence, and with the New Year schedules kicking off it seemed like a good time to dust off my Margate souvenir television savings box and start popping in a pound or two each time something from the BBC felt like money well spent.

I thought it would be interesting to see how long it took to fill the box with £145.50 (the annual cost of a colour TV licence in the UK). Unfortunately it seems pound coins were invented after television savings boxes as they don’t fit through the slot. So after all that I think I’ll stick to the direct debit.
