a little on the OCD side
very impulsive, which doesn’t bode well for our credit cards!
They don't call me "Clever Claire" for nothing!

We hardly use cash too, everything possible goes on our Virgin Amex card so we earn miles!

Aswell as my savings tins, I have a seperate online sayings account, so if I save anything on my weekly shop etc I transfer it from my regular account to my holiday savings account....basically a virtual savings pot.

Got two savings tins this afternoon - the kind you need to open with a tin opener so I can't get into the tins until they're full cause I'm a disaster for "robbing" from my savings but now I've no choice but to wait Love the idea of this diddldonna!! When I have all my savings for our next trip I'll have you to thank for it

I already have an online savings account and I put anything under £1 in there whenever I get paid, or log onto my account, but in 6 months I only have £57......

Just got back from town and I've put all the change in my purse in the tin. DD finished decorating it last night, it's got so much cellotape on it I'm not sure we'll ever be able to open it lol!
