i have gone to drastic measures already, last month i lasted on 1.05 credit for the whole 4 weeks, i didnt spend a single cent, which is far removed from when i used to spend 50 on cred per month, tho my parents were paying for it then... this month i have splashed out a bit tho... ynow, textin people that dont text back...

I'm useless at saving - i get so far and then i see something I
really want and buy it without thinking about what I'm supposed
to be saving for (and I spend most of my money on credit)

Binky........ you can save, even if it's only pennies, put these in a jar once a week, you will feel you have achieved some way to your goal. it's not about how much, it's about feeling that you are working towards your dream.Open a seperate savings account 'boat fund' once a month bank your pennies. I have old house to renovate, cars to run, pets to feed, club boats to hire, etc., but penny by penny I will have my boat! It's better to save little by little than to put a burden on yourself to save shed loads each month and to never realise your goal.  Good luck Binky...... have a look in your pockets, do you have a penny? .......put it in that jar!

Cool idea Headfry I've got a little pen so I can so I can mark
how much I've saved! It doesn't seem like I've never got any
money because I'm only putting away little amounts
Thanks Headfry! This thread was a great idea

Christmas is coming - the hardest time of year not to dip into
that penny jar - keep it up all those people who are saving for
their dream!
