A new thread in case we are too tipsy (or in my case, asleep on the sofa) to remember later.

This is a friendly group where we chat all things money related and all things everything else related. Everyone welcome so settle in and let’s make 2018 the year we save money!

Welcome all! 💐

On a camel related note I read a Facebook memory from last year about DS (7 then) forgetting the word camel and coming up with his own name for them... desert llamas 😍😂

BlessYourCottonSocks Sun 31-Dec-17 22:14:45

I like your aims baconsandwich I might have to adopt them. They are roughly along the lines I was thinking about for this year.

Happy new year. Spends. £20 tesco on nothing and £36 osteopathy. Hoping it works. X

mammymammyIRL Sun 31-Dec-17 22:34:34

Hey all grin
Frugal start to new year is won't need shower gel for a while, haven't opened all Christmas presents yet but I've now got 5 bottles grin

LonelyOversharer Sun 31-Dec-17 22:35:57

How do we all spend at least £20 in tescos on nothing? £20 in lidl = food.

Extra resolution: no more buying "nothing" when I only need milk and plain flour. I will stick to lists.

FridgeCut Sun 31-Dec-17 22:59:10

Place marking. Happy new year, crew.

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 31-Dec-17 23:20:20

Lonely I wonder what your freezer audit will uncover?.

Happy 2018 y’all


Cagliostro Mon 01-Jan-18 00:34:10

Happy new year everyone! I'm about to snuggle down with Cagletini (for newbies, that's my 2 month old grin) after seeing in the new year watching a movie (Pirates in an Adventure with Scientists) and eating a turkey and stuffing sandwich from yesterday's roast grin

I've had 3 NSDs in a row thanks to not leaving the house. Had lots of fun times though. smile

Happy New Year. Hope we all get what we wish for...

2018 is the year I need to get on top of all my money wastage - strip it right back to the basics and stop buying crap I don't need.

Cag so glad it fits. That was a speedy service from the Royal Mail 👍

SnugglySnerd Mon 01-Jan-18 06:45:46

Welcome new frugaleers!

I hope last night hasn't set the tone for the rest of 2018. The babies had a terrible night. I think I slept from about 11-2 then from about 3.30-6. I might has well have stayed up to see the new year in!

Anyway I hope 2018 is happy, healthy and frugal for you all.
