    Some of these posts are seriously impressive! I know if I got off my backside I could tear towards that total in double-quick time, but I don't necessarily think I could allow myself to count those spend-to-save promos, the tiny bit of money off accompanies a whole load of spending. I suppose motivation is the key though, I need a stronger kick up the backside than a double espresso, There's a leaning tower of ps4 games I'm done with that I'll never use again... same as the ps3 one, the ps2 one.... etc. Maybe keeping an eye on this thread will help motivate me de-clutter.

    Ditto, would be spending all my time working out what I'd saved otherwise! Not sure I will get to 2018 but if I get to around 1200 I will be happy with that.

    It's really slow earning rewards on surveys here in France. The YouGov ones are averaging one every three weeks or so! The other one I use is Insta and that has bee a little more rewarding

    So I'm pleased to say I checked out another 1 Am*zon card this week bringing my grand total to 2

    Still, it's better earning than not (just don't ask about interest on accounts )
