It was a good idea at the time...

At the moment, we are mid-economy drive. So...
i) We have got rid of the car. It was 12 years old and costing more than it was worth in insurance and road tax, that's before being repaired to keep it on the road. So a nice little man gave us £20 for it. Besides, it'll keep us fit.
ii) I have ditched all of my magazine subscriptions. I don't have time to read them anymore anyway. I'm too busy blogging.
iii) I'm making bread.
Yup, you read me right. I'm making bread. I've done it before, for fun. Now I'm going to have to make enough for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, cheese on toast for supper...

I feel alot of salads coming on.

The money you'll save by not having a car. I lived without one for a long time in London - you really don't need one here (contrary to very popular belief). OK, public transport can be a pain in the backside, but then so can traffic jams, and I felt so much fitter minus the car. Good for you - you're doing wonders for the envrionment as well as for your bank balance.

Magazines - as you say, who needs them when there are all these fantastic blogs to read.

And as for baking bread: I'll be interested to know whether you actually save £££ doing this. I've tried it (using a bread-making machine I must add), and I found it more expensive to buy the ingredients than to buy the bread. Home-made's much healthier though. Mmmm. That gorgeous bread your mum used to bake. And those cakes ..... aaaahhh the cakes. the date and walnut .... ooohhhh.
