    If there is one thing the itemiser loves I would bet it is a long line of cheerleaders;)

    Are you thinking long-legged, super-flexible American teens or are you happy with the little fat yellow flumps? :confused:

    (Are you even old enough to know what flumps are? :p)

    Flumps were before my time i'm afriad, child of the eighties. Will have to stick to the long legged, super-flexible American teens.

    I've been away and neglected my duties here, apologies. But the itemiser will rise again. Hopefully it will be kicking into action again soon. Hopefully some more people can join in as well.

    Second victim alert!!!! Argos Bin is now 100% owned, itemiser has been turned back on again and is ready to march on to its next victim. Have decided to update the victims as I go along and keep them listed on the first post.

    We are cooking on gas now! Batman has been paid for so we can add another one to the list. Now if you will care to Join me we are taking on a bigger prey. Easyjet flight to Geneva. This was from a skiing trip with the boys a couple of years ago, had a fantastic time, never laughed so much in all my life, but now the time has come to pay my dues - so it is a £96.50 target - GO!

    Hi Taylo...I'm joining and subscribing now quickly before I go to bed else I'll forget about it!

    Anyways I'm not 100% sure of the amount I owe, but I have ordered 2 greenday tickets for me and DD on my Halifax cc which has interest so I wanted to get it paid off as quickly as possible, I'm not keen on paying interest!!

    I will check my statement tomorrow then come and declare the exact amount I owe.

    Good work Bowski! I shall add you to the list to make....well... 2 of us! But every challenge has to start somewhere! Green Day tickets will be worth it, they are awesome live, but get the figure and you can start to whittle away at it until it is gone!! The easyjet flight is almost done, I have a couple of things in the pipeline that will see it off so looking to find the next thing to scratch of the list.....

    Right I've checked my balance and it's £90.10 for both tickets, like you say though they're worth it. I saw them last month and it was amazing. I didn't take DD though so thought it was a good excuse to go again :D

    I have some money from free scratchcards I can withdraw and I've been saving up 20p's so I'll use them to kickstart the payments.

    Thanks for setting up this challenge it's a great idea :money:
