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!

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 😍😂

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.

Happy new year everyone! I'm about to snuggle down with Cagletini (for newbies, that's my 2 month old :o) 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 :o

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

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 👍

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.

Thanks for the new thread cag, I love the titleSmile❤️

Happy New Year folk.

Welcome new people. There's lots of advice and support here. The thread moves quickly so don't worry about keeping up or remembering names etc.

There's also a variety of income and financial goals here. It's more about having or getting best value for money, however large or small the pot is, rather than anything else.

Financial goals for the New Year

  • no frivolous spend January.
  • have a No Spend day a week, Monday's work best for me. At least one day, that is.
  • another chuck of money into and onto pension and mortgage.
  • use TCB (Topcashback) or similar more, I forget this sometimes.

    Last night was a lovely meal out at a local Italian with friends and back to theirs but I drove so I've woken up tired but not hungover.

    I'm going to meal plan and cook today and do a freezer inventory of the garage freezer.
