    Lol! I fall slap bang in the typical demographics of being female aged 36!
    Right now I'm having amnesia and deja- vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before

    This probably has as much to do with who spends the money and on what as anything else. I would say that if you ran a quick straw poll, most of the people who make the spending decisions with regard to food shopping, utilities, clothes, insurance etc would probably be women. So they'd probably have more of a vested interest in money saving ideas.

    Alternatively, Mrs MSE actually does have something to worry about

    Sorry to go off topic a second, but are there any stats for this site? Do you know location of users and which part of the country participates most and least? (There seems to be an awful lot of Scottish people!!) etc etc?

    I wonder how that compares to to total percentage of male and female facebook users, from people I know almost all womon are on there where a lot blokes aren't.

    Being male in early 40s, I don't know a solitary male who uses Facebook. My wife and her friends, though, are on the thing all the time. If that's the general demographic for Facebook usage, then it explains Martin's demographics...
    I really must stop loafing and get back to work...

    The idea of facebook makes me laugh, lets see which of my 'friends' has "just eaten a carrot lol". There all such good friends I can't be bothered to actually phone them ever and I never really see them either but I can be updated by all the little things they do in life.

    As you may guess I am not on facebook, I phone my friends, we get together on a regular basis so why would I need to see them all on facebook?

    Oh I forgot a can't send my friends a vitual cake...
