Which ones did you save the money on?

KatyMac Tue 29-Jul-08 22:24:21

Less than 1% of my bills sad

KatyMac Tue 29-Jul-08 22:24:50

They are the reductions

re the pools - I had this conversation with my friend who is currently skint, she plays the lottery and we worked out that she spends almost £450 pa on it and that she had never won anything near that. It is a bad investment in those terms.

Have a look at www.moneysavingexpert.com there is a really good budget planner and also pain free ways to save money by just shopping around.
