    I too have a bit of a habit, 60p a time for coke from the vending machine at work...

    much cheaper to buy it at the supermarket and take it to work, but it's COLD from the vending machine...

    it's getting to the time of year when I can bring back the fridge for my office - a plastic bag hung out of the window - I'm just glad I look out onto spare ground where no one can see it (or nick it, it's ground level!)

    i think its a great idea, makes you realise just how much you spend on things you don't really need!! well done:money:
    i keep losing weight, but it just keeps on finding me!!!!!!:D
  • Just tried it.

    I found I could have done with a print button by it and would have liked the option of monthly buttons.

    It really is marvellous though!

    Off to put my list on the fridge to scare the children and stop them wasting money! LOL!! ;)

    Its amazing how much I could save by giving up my starbucks coffee, I think I will give it a try and buy a flask instead.
    Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Birmingham Childrens Hospital caring for my tiny and very poorly grandson who was born at 29 weeks. Thanks to them he is getting a little stronger every day.:A:A:A

    surprising how small amounts add up but do I want to forgo the chance of winning a fortune by not buying that lottery ticket? tough call! great tool to show novice money savers how little changes add up

    I like it - although the every work day not rounding down is slightly annoying (£70.70 at a £1 a day) but other than that quite a handy little tool.
