    The results would be much more meaningful if they were in answer order rather than "popularity" order. That way you could easily see what the average was, and where you came in comparison to it.

    True - but the software doesn't do it I'm afraid - however when we get the final result we can do it that way :)

    I haven't counted my Premium Bonds as they take 1-2 weeks for me to receive the money.

    Imagine someone holding forth on biology whose only knowledge of the subject is the Book of British Birds, and you have a rough idea of what it feels like to read Richard Dawkins on theology: Terry Eagleton

    lol im like that too Wanty. More concentrating on the "getting rid of debt bit of life" at the mo. But hopefully, should have that sorted in the next couple of months - then what i am currently forking out on debts will be being saved instead!:j

    im in one of the latter options, but this is because im saving for a house, rather than saving for a rainy day.

    having said that, i dont plan on moving into a house until i know i have enough money to not only put down a substantial deposit, but also having money put by for emergencies.

    Well one of them could be the 100k PB winner... Bound to be a few in between houses, Martin might not have had time to get to the bank since his last appearance on the box etc.

    I think it's interesting. Do remember quite a number of people tend to have large amounts of liquid cash if they've sold a property and are looking to buy a new one. It's a very common question on here.
