    have you spoken to virgin? if you tell them you can't afford to stay with them they may make you a decent offer so you can continue to stay with them. x

    Hello Aesop top of the afternoon to you. :jI rang them originally and I think they rang here mum told them that I was at work and to ring back but I have been at work doing 15hour days (unpaid at work and plenty more at home) for the last few weeks so I have missed them. I am hoping they will ring back sometime this week I am only planning to be in work for a few hours each day.


    Just put an item of new makeup on fleabay.Why on earth do I stock up on things when it takes ages to finish a MAC eyeshadow? I have enough for the next fifty or so years!!!! Discovered a new shop called homebargains v cheap for food in hols.

    Virgin rang and have given me a £15.00 reduction per month on my bill and thrown in 10 extra channels. They have matched Talk Talk's offer and even beaten it. I am so chuffed! This site is amazing.

    Thank you ladies, ps, it's payday today. Hurrah!!!


    I spent less than £10 this week too on fizzy pop. Doing all this work in my holiday means I am not spending. We find out next week if we have been successful. I have to go in tomorrow as I am not quite finished but we are nearly there. :j


    I am thinking of ways to pass my summer holiday without breaking the bank. Gardening and walking I have come up with so far. I do hope the weather will be good, it has rained heavily today.

    A kind poster (called Enjoy Your Shoes) has posted on Thrifty Hayley's nice thread and I am applying what they said to Thrifty Hayley to help me in my moneysaving journey as it is an inspiring post.

    My SMART objectives are :


    By July 2015 to have £200 for holiday spending
    By November 2015 to have £400 for Christmas
    By 2018 to have raised £4000 for a new kitchen


    Ps just made £7.80 on fleabay. Every little helps!

    After a few weeks of intense stress the project at work has succeeded. I am exhausted!!!!!






    The good news is I haven't spent much money as I have been too busy working. The bad news is I don't know where I put my cashcard! so I can't withdraw money for a while now the worst of it is over. Lol!!!!!
    More redundancies been announced with v little notice. Scary times.

    Hi Mrs Upsidedown bear. I am not going to call the bank for a few days in case it turns up. Noone has spent it so I don't think there is any hurry and if I don't have it I can't spend it! lol After a leisurely lie-in this morning I went to the shops. Probably the first weekend off since Easter. I bought a few books in a second hand shop and that was it!!! Bus ticket £6 and books £3!

    I just don't seem to spend any more as I keep thinking do I need it? Hopefully this will keep me solvent and help my savings. This is such a new me. I can't believe how I have changed.:beer: :D
    I hope it lasts!!!:rotfl:


    At the moment I am putting any excess money into my kitchen fund. The max I can put in is £250 a month and I am raiding my Christmas fund to do it. I don't think I can save much this month though despite the 6% savings rate but I have to remember the tortoise won the race not the hare!


    Just made £7.33 in another fleabay sale. I only have a bit of makeup left!
