Don't listen to those 'Nay-sayers'...
It will be six years since I gave up smoking on 2nd Jan 2008(gloat!).
Do any of you have any resolutions this New Year or is it just another day in the calendar?
My next NY resolution is not listen/read any scientific 'research' in the media about what we should eat/breath/think etc...tough one!!!

saw this..
"Geek to Live: Year-end money moves"
http://lifehacker.com/software/geek-to-live/geek-to-live--year+end-money-moves-145764.php

eg..

"Weed out unnecessary expenses.

Take a look back at your recurring bills this past year and cut down, adjust or discontinue the stuff you don't need. Holding an AOL account you haven't dialed into for months? Paying cell phone overages or winding up with way more unused minutes than you thought? Got a department store credit card you didn't swipe all year? Not using Netflix or that gym membership as much as you thought you would? Cancel, discontinue and cut up those old cards and accounts that are draining your bank account for no reason.

some of the advice is US only.. but if you arent 100% on top of your finances and youve got a couple of hours-worth of new year resolution 'fever'..

id propose it is a wothwhile plan of action

To save, save, save...

Save as much money as I possibly can, don't buy anything I don't need, and become debt-free by the end of the year.

I'm already well on my way to accomplishing this, having switched to a 0% interest credit card, plus I'm changing my bank next month, and I've done spreadsheet calculations for the year ahead.

This is a great site I'd recommend to anyone who's serious about saving money -

You'd be AMAZED how much money you can save by taking a few simple steps!
