    I was reading another thread on this topic, and like many others, a lot of the headings are not relevany to me, and a few are missing!

    Anyway, as suggested, i copied the sections i needed on to Excel, but the formulas have vanished!?!?

    Anyone know what formulas were used?

    I can say whatever I like here ... 'cos no one can see me .. ner ner ner ner ner !!!....

    How do you know I ain't sitting here butt naked?!?!

    I thunk I've made you think for a minute!

  • Hello to everyone.

    I'd like to know a little more about 'piggybanking' as mentioned in the budgeting article. I've performed several searches but can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

    How do I go about setting up several bank accounts accounts?

    Do I do this with my current bank (Barclays) or do I go to other banks?

    I feel confident that this approach would work for me.

    If this has already been covered, then please forgive me - but I would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction.

    Thank you in advance.

  • Forget my last.

    I think I found the answer.

    I discovered today that I can add e-savings accounts through online banking. I now need to discover whether I can pay people from these accounts. They have account numbers and sort codes, so I can't see why not.

    Then I need to see if I can work out how to give them a meaningful name, like 'Mortgage' or 'Electricity'.

    I also need to read up on exactly how many of these e-saving accounts I can have. So far, It looks like I could easily use around TWENTY! Realistically I think I may have to lump a few categories into the same account.


  • Andrea,

    Yes please to the Monthly Food planner - was just going to ask on the topic.

    The ability of skinny old ladies to carry huge loads is phenomenal. An ant can carry one hundred times its own weight, but there is no known limit to the lifting power of the average tiny eighty-year-old Spanish peasant grandmother.
