Superscrimpers.

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

I had one look at this show a couple of weeks ago and they were just showing how to do your nails cheaply with some little dots on them................................ I had to look on the TV program twice to really believe this was about "serious" saving money!! I moved on quickly to another channel....

We use the vouchers my OH earns on surveys and supermarket points saved throughout the year to buy out Christmas goodies - we usually have about £150 to spend. However - I really don't see the point of buying stuff with a coupon if it's poor quality sh1te that no-one wants to eat! She even admitted that some of the food she acquired (rather than bought) was nutritionaly questionable!
As to the road kill bloke - does he really eat £30 worth of meat in a week?? And how much is he really saving when he drives 30 miles of road to find his "free" meat?

Did anybody else see the last episode of superscrimpers, where one of the girls being 'educated' spent over £20,000 a year on looking good? I don't think I've ever spent that much in my entire life! Imagine all the biscuits you could buy for that.....

And, in my opinion, she would have looked better without a face full of designer gunk and the fake hair.

On the plus side though I did use some of the tips and managed to save some serious money on car insurance, RAC and the like.

I wondered that. I got through Uni with less than that a year, so after paying rent and buying food, where did they get the money from?!

If I needed to spend £20,000 a year to look good, I think I'd apply for a head transplant. Failing that, I think I'd just go with what I had.

A personality could possibly help in situations such as these (having one, that is, not hiring one).

I use coupons, but only if they are the things I usually buy anyway. Otherwise it's rather a false economy and often the coupons available here are for brand names which are far more expensive than the supermarkets' own brand or el cheapo range of stuff. The best economy is to look thru the junk mail and buy food which is on promo i.e. meat or fish, in bulk when it is being offered at a cheaper price than normal.
