    We're offsetting so I'm finding it a bit difficult to get my head round any progress! I'm sure we'll be able to follow the example of all on here and decrease our term too.

    Maybe get into a routine of helping her tidy so she can see how it is done?

    Thanks Jellie, as I have been reminded myself. Paying off your mortgage is a is a marathon not a sprint so take it slowly and enjoy yourself along the way.

  • Today I started my Christmas shopping. Yes I know it is still August but DD wants a DSI Console for Christmas and it has to be pink. I shopped around and the best offer I could see was from Mr T. It was £119 and included 2 games and free shipping to our local store. I used Quidco and some clubcard vouchers so it only cost £60 in real money. It had to be pink and as it is a limited edition colour at least we have got it. I also used our newly acquired 0% AA credit card to pay for it. I will get £25 cashback for that too :D

  • Thanks. Off to Mr T later to collect it, saving £5 in shipping fees. Thought being vivid pink it might be harder to get in a few months time. Unless I have been kidnapped by then :D

    Wow that's great :j
    I need to check out my pressie box so I can figure out who I have left to buy for and keep my eye out for good offers!
    Was thinking of using tesco vouchers for magazine subscriptions for some people.
