Firebox offers Digital Coin Jar for new year savers

If one of your new year's resolutions is to try and be a little more thrifty and save up some pennies, then Firebox is offering help with the Digital Coin Saving Jar.

Rather than chuck your spare change into a tin or bottle for a quick count-up when funds are low, this high-tech efforts keeps a digital tally of how much you've saved.

Every time you slip a coin through the slot, the electronic counter adds it to the total, displaying it on the LCD display on the lid, while if you need to make a quick withdrawal simply key in the amount taken and the counter deducts the coins from the total.

The 14.5cm high jar is on sale now from Firebox for £12.99 and requires two AAA batteries to work.
