Found 27th Feb 2008
I have had to really cut back on my spending of late in the hope of saving enough to make a start on the house and its really gettting to me - lol
It is great to see the money mounting up and the fact it has to be done but can you really get shopping withdrawal symptoms, i havent been into town for three weeks

i do feel a bit low, with not spending, always cheers ya up to spend a little, and i only pop on once a day....












































its just i forget to leave:oops:

I know! It's just soooooooooooo addictive here!!!

I hate being tight with money as well to save, the needing to spend always overcomes me BUT....

I find a deal on here and think well i still saved money as it would of cost me X amount if i didnt find it on here lmao.......

The shopping bug is cured hehehehe

This site must have put firmly at the top of our internet users at work!

Often have it in the background and just click a little F5 every so often...

I know it's the wrong time of the year really but Car Boot sales were always my answer to your problem Sassie. I used to make sure that I had between £10 and £20 to spend at the weekend and then trot off round the boot sales and spend, spend, spend ! Our boy here spent the first 8 years of his life wearing, playing and reading stuff bought from car boots and the majority of it was excellent brand named stuff and ended up getting handed down even further, or sold on !!

Amazing what you can buy for £20 and if you're really switched on you can easily sell on some of the stuff to friends, relatives etc. I used to ask them before the weekend if there was anything they were after etc etc.
You might even make enough to go on a real shopping trip !!

Ebay always used to be the answer but it's hard to either get a bargain nowadays, some exceptions like clothes, and selling is becoming more expensive by the week.

Anyway thought I'd just add a bit of support because it can be painful

Take care

Thanks hts, but linxadu2 should get all the credit for this find.

This is how I am feeling.

I have just had an op and can not walk for 3 months so not only can I not walk round town, my partner gave up work to look after me so I have no income either!!

As I am the DIY Queen, I am not even going to be left with a revamped home after all of this!!!

(I will have a new sparkly ankle though...yaay!!)

You're right of course but I do like to reward the messenger as opposed to always shooting them , lol

Will backtrack to the original OP

Jeremy Kyle is Vile...

I could try scrabble but my oh will just try to find rude words and then s****** a lot...

Tantric sex...see above description of scrabble and apply to this suggestion also...

I did actually buy some filler for a crack that needs filling (in the wall, not my face, haha). It's still sat here unopened, I fear DIY is my job and my job only.

andreah when you back on your feet, your welcome to come here and help out, i am absolute cack at DIY, and if bathroom ever gets sorted i have got to learn how to tile:w00t:

I am the exact opposite - it kills me to spend!

I am generous and would spend everything I have on someone else, but when it comes to buying stuff for myself I hate it! Even if it is totally necessary I hold off until the last minute when I have no choice but to get my ££ out!

oh my spending is never really on me, its on the kids, i start xmas shopping in january, but have had to put a stop to that whilst i get enough money to start putting some work into the house

I never buy myself anything but i love buying others stuff, especially when they're not expecting it.

A great believer in "Spontaneous acts of human kindness" lol

There was a film wasn't there, "Pay it Forward" I never did see it, anyone ??

Sassie tiling is easy peasy. We can do that online lol !!!

I am good at tiling!!
I retiled my whole kitchen and bathroom.
Maybe not to everyones taste but miles better than the ****** white tiles that were there before.

I actually have a picture that I took so I could show my friends why I had disappeared for a week!

Yes, I am very sad...

Me too. I love buying for others. I have a loft full of stuff to give to family and friends. I do sometimes give people stuff and look at me like I am mad?? Like I'm weird?? Does anyone else get that, or are my partners family just really rude?

LOL yes I know what you mean and nowadays you are treated with suspicion even by friends and family.
I don't do the things I used to because of that and because in some instances I would end up in deep trouble !
Manys the time when I managed supermarkets I've given the odd 50p or £1 to kids who were being angels while out with their parents shopping. Also used to get friends kids around to clean for me and do odd jobs in the garden and pay them when they were expecting nothing.
The look on their faces when you gave them a £5 note was priceless !!

Doesn't happen now because everyone thinks any man over 40 is a potential pedo, no matter how well they know you. Too much of a risk and very very sad.
