grin I've done the £2 jar for about 3 years now.
And the Nectar/M&S/Tesco means I have to be a bit strong willed. Usually the Tesco ones get used for double clubcard deals (I bought a phone for my DS and a heater for my guinea-pigs with these)

We've had light, non settling snow for the past 2-3 days now. And pesky hailstones.

I have my bag of change for parking machines, that I keep in the car - when it is getting pretty full and I don't need parking money, I will get a few stamps for the big supermarket and add those to my card (I aim to fill at least 1 card for the big stores shop around Christmas).

Otherwise, I have a salary sacrifice going on into the credit union through work - I put money away every paycheque for birthdays and Christmas and holiday money, so that usually covers anything I need in December.

Rudy Day today. I MAY watch a Christmassy movie tonight in bed (DH is away again!) but that's about the extent of it this month (too shattered for planning).

I haven't done anything remotely Christmassy - dc and I are suffering from various nasty bugs!

So has spring officially begun?

I've just found yet another box of Christmas Chocolates from a grateful client! Operation get back to size 12 will have to wait another day or two.

DD and I were in The Range and they had a small display of christmas stock vastly reduced. I resisted. wink

I bought gloves a couple of weeks back (not Christmas ones but nude/camel)

How long to go then Rabid???
