    Hi JamieDodger,
    I haven't been on here for a long time and just checked and you had posted a few days ago. I have saved over seven hundred pounds this year using the second purse method. It really works for me and I save my money for Christmas.

    I too am still using the method. My laptop broke recently and the thing I was most upset about was losing the info on my second purse. I have built mine up and cashed over £700 and also have £1000 stock paid for which of course, when "bought" will turn into a profit aswell. I can't imagine life without it now.....
    I'm not a failure if I don't make it, I'm a success because I :tried!

    Sorry to hear about your lap top ALWAYS HAPPY. A thousand pounds worth of stock - Wow! I have no idea what my stock is worth as I can never be bothered to work it out.
    SKILLY: I sometimes forget to put the money in. I try to write down what I have had out in a book too. Esther xx
