    very pleased that I've managed to not buy lunch at all this month, I've saved a very nice £90 just from not going out over lunch!

    will definitely be taking part in Feb!

  • Evening Kittiej and everyone

    I am really happy with what I achieved in January so have upped my targets for February as I am at work for a full month and have calculated my potential savings on that and have updated my signature accordingly.

    Some impressive amounts saved. :T:T I wonder if the sandwich shops have noticed? lol :D

    See you all on the February thread.
