    Ours varies - sometimes it's like that and others the kit is there for weeks.

    If they're out it's not a biggie; I don't desperately need the drive yet and they do a 1.5TB one in Germany which I'm guessing will be on their next round of PC kit.

    The wireless Hub looks interesting. I might pop by my local Aldi tonight and see if they have any left.

    We're a family of three and we easily spend £600 a month and we're not extravagant in our eating habits.

    Yep, 10/100. Shame it isn't 10/100/1000, but then it is only £40 and I bought it for the wireless functionality.

    Quick overview for those interested:

    W-LAN: 802.11 b/g/n

    Encryption: WEP 64/128, WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK, WPS

    Connectivity: 4x USB 2.0 ( 1xfront, 3x rear ) 1 x RJ45 10/100 Mbit/s, 1 stereo audio output (3.5mm jack)

    Ooh, it has a stand too

    I can quite believe that - there's just two of us and we spend more than £350 a month just in the supermarket - scary how quickly it adds up really. I should note that we are the most careful shoppers in the world!

    Now that both my daughters are at university I've a good idea of what can be saved. Normal spend for us (taking into account that Daughter 1 has to eat a low fat diet for medical reasons) was around the £100-£125 a week mark. We had our Visa statement yesterday and our supermarket bill has fallen to around £35-£40 per week. We don't unfortunately see any of this saving as it goes on the upkeep of our daughters.

    our spend varies but is never anymore than £40 a week for two of us. Some weeks is only £25 others have been £15, all depends whats in the freezer, or left over.

    Yes we do eat out but not everyweek.
