    £30k is an amazing achievement, so jealous 😁
    If it's not adding up, compound it!
  • Thanks Grogged 😀 It wasn't massive to start with (still alarming to me though), but very pleased with the progress I've made

    Morning sc, was just about to post to see if you were ok as you hadn’t posted for a week , made a coffee and came back and noticed another two pages on this new forum 😆 

    ouch to the car insurance, 😝 to the grumpy neighbour and glad you had a nice Valentine’s Day in your new top!

    Hi newgirly, thanks for the tip - I would never have thought of Primark! There is a big one in town, so will go and hunt round when I can gee myself up to go down (about a 7-minute walk into town, but 15 minutes back as I live on top of a hill and can't bring myself to go back up the "down" as it's lots of steep steps - must be good for me though 😐)

  • Thats a great psychological reward for the insurance "win". I may pinch that idea myself in April.

    Thanks SJ. There's £15.50 in the mortgage holding account at the moment, so hoping to save at least £9.50 so I can send another £25 off today!

    Whoop, whoop! I smashed the hoped-for £9.50! Final price came in at £495.32, so have just celebrated with a £150 OP 😀😀😀 (was even more excited at one point when I had a £449 quote, but closer examination revealed I'd missed a "0" off my annual mileage 😂!) Not sure I can top that in terms of money-saving activity for the day, so had better go annoy BF instead ☺

    Money-saving activity for today:
    1) Finally got round to getting a blurry receipt re-printed so I can claim £10 of expenses 😀
    2) Gorged on pizza during a meeting and didn't need dinner 😀😀😀
