  5. wow this is great! i spent a fortune on a weekend away, but mum payed for the hotel and dinners so that was 175 saved! haha

  6. Wow that's a good saving! I have started using a facial wash instead of face wipes and cleansers with cotton pads which saves a little each month. Also having a cold means no petrol used for work and I didn't eat much but that's rather extreme hehe!
    Keep up the good work x
