    My Over 50's Spending Diary 4th Jan 18 at 9:45 AM
    I have been with MSE a number of years and each year I have become better and better at making sure that I spend my money wisely. I find that recording the savings I am making no matter how small reminds me that if I take care of the pennies the pounds will take care of themselves.

    Littlewoods Clearance bargains via eBay:

    1. V By Very Chambray Men's shorts 3.99 saved 21.01

    2. Reebok Supremium Ladies Black T-shirt 4.99 saved 17.01

    3. V By Very Black Ruffle Jumper 7.99 saved 30.01

    4. V By Very Black/cream High Neck Striped Jumper 5.99 saved 26.01

    5. V By Very Men's Navy Woven Jogger Shorts 4.99 saved 27.01

    Plus I saved 15.80 on P & P costs
    Plus a 5 discount because I had spent 20 plus
    Plus I used an eBay 20% voucher code which saved me another 4.59

    1 hopper bus journey worth 75p

    Free Metro Newspaper 20p

    Council Tax Support for 2017 to 2018 899.83

    Tesco Mid Week Delivery Saver cost me 40 for the year in 2017 but I saved 263 on the price of the individual delivery slots I used ( Tesco delivery drivers deliver to my kitchen which is really helpful as I live in a maisonette and there are so many stairs to negotiate)

    Revolution Super Light 4 Wheeled Suitcase from Tesco Direct which was half price in the Sale so I saved 22.50 and I got free delivery worth 3 because I have a Delivery Saver Mid Week Plan and I had spent over 10 on my order

    Poundland Bargains:

    2 X Maltesers and Friends small selection pack half price saved me 1

    4 X 6 Packets of Sensations crisps saved me 2.80

    Superdrug In Store Shop:

    2 X Cadbury's Buttons Tubes half price saved me 1

    4 X Dove Men's Duo Sets 50p reduction saved me 2

    Current total = 1,342.52
