  1. I'm a far more of a cheapskate than the lot of you.

    Early evening shopping/hunting.

    Mental Attitude "How am i going to stop these thieving B*******s taking my hard earned"

    They are at war with you. They will do anything to get you money - anything.

    Never get a trolley (move light & fast) - you fill what you can carry.

    A rough max spend £15 each shop.£5 a Carrier bag full. Only buy large reductions and Very good offers.

    Morrisons (Bread etc.), Marks (Butter etc.), Lidl (Chorizo etc.) & because i'm bit of masochist Tesco's(Shite).

    Never let emotion or loyalty influence you.

    You need to be thick skinned and shameless. ( psychology)

    Know the price of food, check the weights and all the other scams.

    Check your receipt carefully, a trip to tesco's recently resulted in 4 intentional mistakes (all to my disadvantage) i only bought 8 items.

    i.e. offers not registered on the till system yet but marked as 2 for 1 etc.,

    I can never understand why people work so hard and are then prepared to waste all that labour

    for the sake of 2 hours concentrated effort.

    I get my shopping at roughly 10-20% of the normal cost and eat like a gastronome.

    2 hours of my life are better spent either working to pay "full price" for food or enjoying it with friends. not to mention the fuel/bus fare or kinetic energy you used to get to all 7 supermarkets to get milk for 5p.

  2. just doing a little research. i think i can get a better deal if i moved my mortgage provider. even though id suffer a hefty early repayment charge it would still save me a good few thousand if i moved. would i be better to go to my current provider now and tell them what im planning in the hope they may match or improve my deal in order to keep the custom or straight to the new provider and work it from there. your experiences and thoughts are welcome. cheers

  3. It's worth chucking 7 bil at the micks if we're gonna get more than 7 bil back from the throw.

    What makes the call interesting is that no one knows what the outcome will be, I suppose.

    On that basis, i would be in favour of printing a quick 7 bil and chucking it at them.

    I know I'm an optimist but you never know your luck.

    And if our 140 is all in, the euro is gonna be in such stook that no one will even notice us printing a swift 7 or even 77 bil.

    Print it and chuck it at 'em, say I.

    we cant print euro's? however print £s buy the euro's to bail them out euro rises in value to £ and we benefit from the exports to ireland rising anyway.

  4. My flat in Rosemount has fallen by £6,800 in the last 3 months!

    That's a 4.5% drop in just 3 months. :blink:

    I thought Aberdeen (and Rosemount in particular) was different. :(

    rosemount is fast becomming the new torry.everyday in the papers there articles or vandalised cars locals complaining about "gangs of youths"

  5. i seem to remember my early viewing of this site folks saying mid-late 2009 would be the time to buy the low. yet as soon as that time came the goalposts as it were got moved now to 2011-2014. will the posts keep getting moved until the "site" gets it right?

    i thought back before interest rates took a huge plunge i was so clever locking in my savings for a year into a 6% account.. and the sheeple were the idiots who hadnt. then i thought about it a few months ago. this was the period when the banks probably knew shit was going to hit the fan and the possibility of a collapse could happen or sterling becomes worthless or mega inflation takes place. not such a clever move having savings in sterling. turned out savings were fine and the £ is ...so it turned out to be the right decesion but lucked into it. cant really claim to be clever with money on that basis can i? well seems to me to be the same situation as happened to alot of people who bought 97-2002 or thereabouts who also claim it to be a brilliant financial decesion.
