  • Worked well for me, quite scary how much I spend on a weekly basis 'just for me'
    There's no place like home :)

    Feeling down? Weak in body? Makes no difference to me, I think of you all when I'm sitting quietly.

    Hugs and healing thoughts are always going your way.

    1) The "every few days" is an arbitrary 1.46 days (250 times/year) - seems fairly useless.

    THANKS! we had working days and every few days the wrong way round. Fixed now :)

    101 days until xmas!!! I had better start comping more seriously then! :eek:

    Worked fine with me. I never buy non essentials cos we can't afford them and don't really need them - so my score was as expected.

    It all worked well.

    Thank you. :snow_grin xx

    Worked fine for me. Surprised at the savings I could make by giving up my daily and weekly treats.

    Hi

    It's good and worked well. Found it easy to use and understand.

    Agree that 'every two weeks' and 'every month' would be useful additions.

    Could save £16.97 by Christmas if I gave my weekly cake habit:eek:. Will now buy on a monthly basis.

  • Excellent. If I cut ot the completely frivolous and fattening crisps etc that I buy in moments of weakness (otherwise known as walking round Mr T) I could save £141 by christmas. not only that I would probably lose some weight as well which would be an added bonus.

    Think I shall start a pot and put £1 in it for everyday I don't buy crisps or snacks.
