    Sneaky ways to save the pennies 29th Mar 08 at 5:16 PM
    When giving my kids ice cream I always use cones and give them a lot less actual ice cream than in a bowl. I only serve up the best ice cream (usually home made but sometimes bought) because I think the cheap stuff is rubbish, so I figure this is saving me quite a lot of money. The children don't notice at all.

    Any other ways of sneakily saving pennies that your family doesn't notice?

    You could always offer them on your local Freecycle group -
    I offered my old ones on there ages ago and several people requested them. I wear dailies now so don't need them any more.

    Life, to be sure, is nothing much to lose,
    But young men think it is,
