    Its the cars fault 6th Nov 04 at 4:35 PM
    last sunday our cars computer went ballistic, its under warantee but apparently they are made by outer mongolian shepherds who knit them out of yaks knee cap wool or something so were still waiting for it to be sorted ;D

    anyway, because we have no car and lent my car to my son who is away with it somewhere in the misty depths of the Lakedistrict we have been housebound for a week almost.

    anyway, havnt been to the shops at all, I started the week with 85 in my purse, weve lived very well on the freezer and store cupboard and Ive now got 83 in my purse cos the old fart nipped to the local shop and bought a couple of newspapers.

    so thats the answer, live where there are no buses and dont have a car, youll be rich in no time lol

    How true!

    I already do the no-car thing but with regard to no buses, I am a bit overwhelmed by them, being in London!

    The other trick, which I frequently use in times of real tightwadding need, is:

    Go out without any money in your pockets!
