    1) The "every few days" is an arbitrary 1.46 days (250 times/year) - seems fairly useless.

    2) "Every 2 weeks" and "every month" would be useful additions.

    3) No scope for one-off savings (such as Christmas cards :p)

    Perhaps cutting out condoms might prove more expensive in the long run....:rotfl:
