    Has anyone signed up to this? For those who don't know it categorises your spending so you can see where you spend the most money. I've just got it and it's actually been quite a shock and I'm now wondering what I actually spend money on. My highest category was 'uncategorised' :eek: with a total of...

    Spoiler:

    £642.78 :eek3:


    Any tips to avoid buying random crap?

    Yeah I've got it, I think it's excellent, pissed off at how much I'm spending on fuel though.

    Yeah it's really interesting. Me too with the petrol, although it wasn't as bad as 'uncategorised'! What was your highest category?

    Haha my highest category was 'Uncategorised' too.. Lol, although it was slightly lower than yours at around £460. I think it's really good though, because it has made me more aware of where my money actually goes now!! I've realised that I constantly take money out of ATMs and spend it soo recklessly.

    Oo and on my February one I was way over the average on the entertainment category. Oops!!

    You can categorise and define the uncategorised so in future it will put it in the right place you know

    My highest was uncategorised :eek:, then entertainment and leisure, then petrol, can't remember the rest. I only really got it to see what it was like/for the pie chart but it's actually quite useful but shocking. I think it would be good for people who waste money/people who are in debt etc.
