It seems my kids (age 17 & 20) are totally onboard.
I was swearing about my kettle leaking everywhere and not having the spare ££ to buy a new one.
I came home from work yesterday to discover my 17 year old daughter had ordered me a new one from John Lewis and it was waiting in the kitchen for me!!

£30 saved :rotfl::rotfl:
LBM 18/06/15 - [STRIKE]£20,276.64[/STRIKE] :eek:
01/07/15 - £19,897.02

    If they were truly money saving they would have got the value kettle from Argos for £4.99.

    Over 1000 reviews and a rating of 4.4 out of 5.

    They have lots of money saving to learn bless em.

    Ahh but they'd have had to drive to Argos or pay for delivery :)

    I wish mine were! Mine are only little but get far too much (from my mother in law)...she buys them toys when she pops to the supermarket and they are there...she gives them pocket money that they spend on toys that never get used and she absolutely spoils them at christmas and birthdays. It worries me so much but I feel I can't say anything because she says "that's what grandparents are for" and hubby won't say anything. The reason it worries me is because my daughter will say things like £20 isn't a lot :eek: - and it isn't really her fault because that's just what has happened, but I don't want her to grow up expecting to get whatever she wants, because that's what she has been used to.

    Anyway, ramble over...I probably should have started my own thread!! Well done OP for raising such kind children.
