We've got the Classic model of a 'named' brand, but the cartridges are getting expensive AND elusive I found some own label ones in MrT a while back that fitted perfectly but they must have changed the size as they don't now :mad: So folks--any ideas of the best prices on these would be most gratefully appreciated, as I don't really want to have to buy a new system when there's nowt wrong with the one I've got I see Keiss has given you the link to the NSD Challenge thread & it runs calendar-monthly, just like this one. I've been doing it for a while now for the very reasons you have mentioned--mainly going into a supermarket for milk & coming out £20 lighter I guess the general principles are the same for both Challenges as it is entirely up to you what you do or do not include but come & have a look! It's simple enough to join up at any time of the month & you'll be able to come on our next night out; we're "going" to Brighton this time & verging towards a fancy dress theme of Star Wars; it all gets a bit surreal as we discuss our outfits & modes of transport :rotfl:For instance, there's at least 11 nsd opportunities left till month's end so you could have a practise for,say, three? Goo-onnnnn...ya'no ya wanna My very first AppF00d order was delivered this morning but there's a bit missing, so when I work out how much has to come off I shall change my siggie. I got a bit excited & opened a packet of the dried pineapple but--let's just say I shall not be rushing to buy more _pale_ Had expected it to be like the sticky stuff along the lines of sultanas & things, but this was the texture of meringue & not to my palette at all. Still--nothing ventured & all that...

Well done to everyone whether you've come in over or under budget or slap bang on target you've done the best thing for you and your finances by looking at what you spend and trying to spend less, even if you didn't do it this month, there's always next month. Thanks to everyone for the support and suggestions, without you all I wouldn't be here today, I sometimes forget to say thank you so I'm doing it now, cheers :beer:Herby xThanks Herby - what a great post!:AI totally agree - I shidder to think what I would be spending now if I didnt do this - plus the NSD challenge. These two challenges have saved me a fortune and keep me focussed. Even if Im over budget( as I was in the first 3 mths) its still a lot less than in the "olden" days! Plus - Ive been saving weekly for Xmas and my Car tax so Im rather pleased with my self. :cool: Previously I adopted the ostrich approach and then at the last minute slapped everything on the credit card with the most available credit - NO MORE !:DJust on to update my sig - decided to do the weeks shop today rather than just b & m to avoid BH crush. Got some good bargains and whoopsies so Im well stocked up and only spent @£30:money:On target for June as my month ends on the 20th:j
Have a great day!
