    I added 20 more to the pot earlier, i have had to leave myself enough money so i am able to get the bus to and from work but wheatever i have left when payday comes around i will save the cash.

    Me and DBF saw an ad in the classifieds section at the store the other day for a 4 seater ikea cream sofa for only 40.

    It has saved us some cash as we was going to buy 2 2-seater sofa's from Ikea at 70 each so now we may only need one or neither of them. ...
