I've recommended Post Office stamps quite a few times as a good way to budget, but I noticed at the weekend that they have been replaced by the Post Office Budget Card.

Just in case anyone has any stamps, you only have until 28th August to use or transfer them in a Post Office - http://www.postoffice.co.uk/portal/po/j ... d=19400174

I think the Christmas saving card can be used to save Helen but only have access to your money for a limited time, I like the sound of this one too x

It's for bills and One4all gift cards. You can't have the cash out to spend as you want.

I was very good at buying the stamps at first, but then I stopped and I've got to find the money in October! I think it'll be 6 months tax this time, and try and save some money between now and April to get 12 months - I hate the government getting the surcharge!

Hi
On the subject of budgeting I am hooked on the Quidco site and have racked up over 300 pounds cash back by swapping my insurances over etc
