Hi Guest,

We are now giving away one 12 month membership per week to the person who donates the best tip to the Savings Vault. Everyone can enter. If you are already a member you win an extra 12 months added on to your existing membership.

This week 7heaven has won 12 months membership to the Savings Vault with this great hint:

Checkout control helps me stay within budget!

I have discovered the simple secret to staying within my grocery budget, thanks to a fellow savvy shopper! I was recently in the supermarket and noticed a gentleman doing his shopping of mainly meat, fruit and vegetables. I was standing behind him when I got to the checkout and he told the checkout lady to stop scanning when the total reached $20. She agreed and informed him when he had got to $20, at which he asked her to stop scanning and handed her $20. Having struggled to stay within my shopping budget within the past I thought this was brilliant and ever since that day I have done the same as this gentleman! Today I told the checkout lady to stop at $50 and walked away with my groceries for only $48. I'm so happy to have finally found a way to stay within my budget!

The best way to win a membership is to write helpful, interesting, unique and error free hints. You need to include how much money you saved, how you saved it, what you did and how much you paid. The more detail you provide the more likely you are to win a 12 month membership.

You do not have to answer all the questions to enter the competition. Each hint entered is judged separately. If you send 5 hints. They will be considered 5 separate entries. Which means you have a much higher chance of winning by entering one or two top quality hints than if you entered twenty brief, vague tips. Quality is everything!

If you do not have an answer to a question, or it does not apply to you, please leave it blank.

Thanks for giving it a go. Good luck!

Many grins,

Meals using non-perishables

"A group from our church wants simple recipes for meals made from non-perishable ingredients to give to families who find it a struggle after Christmas. Some ideas we had were pasta bake and tuna casserole but we'd love some more." - Cherie
