I have just noticed my count down now reads 14 months gone already. Only 3 and a bit more of the same till all done. Cant believe it has gone so quick and to be honest I am loving being in control of our spending. Have just done the Tesco shop and I used the £5 off token from the Daily Mail over the weekend.This ment that I could stock up on the nice shower gell that I like which is also on offer at the moment. Hubby is just as keen now for a bargain and walks the isles checking out the almost out of sell buy date section and being really pleased with himself if he happens to find something we might need.I wonder if when the IVA is over if we will still be looking for the bargains or if by then the novalty will have worn off, I hope not.

Well done Carole. I can't wait until I've finished but it is great to hear that you are doing so well.

I will actually buy out of date goods. If it smells and tastes ok then it will be.

Oh I say Helen now that was a bargain shop!

The other day I was with daughter and she paid in a shop with a £10 note and the assistant gave her change for a £20 note, daughter duly pointed out assistants mistake and gave her a £10 note back.....assistant says 'oh yeah' not thank you or anything! I was amazed. Daughter saw look on my face and said 'should I have kept quiet' I said 'no, you did the right thing' but inside I'm thinking if it were me I'd have kept it!

I think we will still shop for the bargains when we finish. Love a good bargain. I have found that in primark I can kit out my stepdaughters and don't spend much - especially if they have the reduced rails. x

I know what you mean about those trouser Carole, Primark next Sunday for me as Jan's place this weekend and then Manchester next weekend. Then I'm staying in and saving every penny I can for Christmas and holiday spending money x

Just got back from shopping and have bought nothing. Size 16 too big and size 14 too small. I have ordered some crop trousers from M&S in a size 14 as I tried a pair of Per una 14s on in a charity shop and they fitted quite nice. What are the chances of the ones I have ordered fitting, nil I suspect.

Nice one Helen I do not blame you for not telling ASDA. These guys rip us off many a time and so when we get a break we should take it lol.

I love Primark, only place I can afford to shop really.

Got lucky though as my good lady manages a Menswear section at Debs and so she puts aside end of line stuff that marked down, buys it on a Megaday and gets staff discount so a £50 pair of jeans cost her £6!!!!

I'm looking rather dapper now with her improving my sense of fashion [:D]

Oh yeah and well done Carole!!!

As for the bargain hunting I think it will stick as it will become habit over 5 years [:)]
Like your Hubby I always rooting around in the reduced section to see if I can get something for a cheap tea haha.

I too like Primark and never thought I'd say that, went there yesterday and it obviously differs which town you go to as yesterdays was a very civilised Primark, Manchester is like a jumble sale!

The one in Birmingham is horrendous as well!

It was a right free for all!

The Leeds one is a mess too. People just drop stuff on the floor, I want to slap people sometimes [:)]

Wolverhampton Jan, I couldn't believe how big it was but how dead it was, there was hardly anyone out shopping? Lovely place though in my opinion (the little I saw).

We popped to merry Hill Saturday and I spent my voucher.

Anyways I went into one shop and looked on the sale rails. Because there was nothing under £10 that I liked i walked out in disgust! Hehe!
