    Hi, can I join for June please. I'm a long time lurker, but feel I need a bit more motivation, so hopefully by joining this will help. There's only me, OH and puss cat. Can you put me down for £200 for June, but i'm going to try for a personal target of £185.

    Many Thanks

    Hi all,

    My first post here - I've been reading the forums for a couple of weeks and have decided that its about time I started posting as I think it'll help me start achieving some goals.

    I'm hoping to have a really tight month and get well underway for paying off some of the debts i've accumulated over the last 2 years. So please put me down for £75 including lunches. Fortunately I'll be house sitting for a week a so won't have to pay for a few days worth of food.

    Can I join too please? This is a fab idea and putting an amount in writing should help me stick to the plan. Can you mark me down for £100 please to start on Tues. I've stocked up my cupboards today from vouchers and feeling confident!

    Heeellloooo to all newbies :hello: and good luck for June!
    Trying something different for us this month . . . we're trying to eat a bit more healthy so figured I try and do one big/first of the month online shop for paper/toiletries/cleaning products and any packaged foods (pasta & rice etc...) and then do a weekly trip to the butcher with top ups for milk, fruit & veg bits from the local co-op - hoping to stay clear of the big supermarkets.

    Am still thinking it through as the 'big' order won't be placed for a couple of days yet, but figure it can't work if I don't try it, eh?! :rotfl:
