  • Does anyone know how to jump to a specific page when reading threads? I can only seem to advance or go back a page at a time? I'm sure I used to be able to select a page too on the old style forum.....
    I was about 30 pages into a very long thread yesterday and now when I go back to it its right at the end on page 1000 ish. How do I get back to where I was???
    Can anyone help?

    If you turn your device to landscape mode you get more options. I'm not sure you can just input a number though like you used to be able to - although I'm only ever seeing how it's displayed on a phone
    Mortgage start: £65,495 (March 2016)
    Cleared 🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️!!! In 5 years, 1 month and 29 days
    Total amount repaid: £72,307.03. £1.10 repaid for every £1.00 borrowed

    Finally earning interest instead of paying it!!!

  • Cheeky little OP of £47.23 today: 
    £37.37 left from shopping budget
    £1.86 TT
    £8 f@cebook sales

    I had been keeping OP money in a 'holding pot' but realised its better put to reducing the mortgage straight away than earning 0.01% in the bank!

    Hi Clarity - that's really cool to see how your OPs broke down. Really impressive!
    Thank Hazelnutty.  :) I've just bookmarked your diary so will catch up on that later. 
    I've more or less got this years spreadsheet up together now. DH gets a bonus this month so that will help cover some of the areas that won't be as high as year. But all being well we will be on track to achieve this years OP target.

    Today's MFW job is to review all the accounts and virtual pots. Also reconcile yesterday's spends - it was a bit of a spendy day on treats but we had a lovely day so all good.

    Ooh, lovely, see you over there :)

  • £5 op from rewards from the bank. Again would have left this to build up but better to knock another £5 off the mortgage today so I don't pay interest on it anymore!!!

  • £25 OP today - made up of monies left from grocery and fuel budget for the week. I have only just started doing this recently.  If the budget is not spent then any excess is now OP'd. Finding its making me better at meal planning and thus reducing top up shops in the week and also more aware of pointless car journeys! Although WFH twice a week is helping reduce mileage a little too.

  • No OP's for a few days but child benefit tomorrow so some will go for an OP. The first £100 is put away in the Uni fund. Its a few years till the eldest goes but starting to plan now.
    Have been trying  to up the NSD's but keep getting thwarted. School uniform today. All budgeted for but even so. If I'm not making an OP i certainly don't want to be spending either!  :o:D
