ARE you sticking with those good intentions . . . or are you calling it quits?

Tomorrow is often dubbed “Quitter’s Day” — when we are most likely to throw in the towel on our New Year resolutions.

If you made it this far, you have already saved so much.

These deals should keep you on track – and on budget.

Chocs away! We each spend an average of £325 on chocolate a year, which works out as £6.25 a week.

So if you have ditched the sweet stuff for January, you have saved £12.50 so far.

Instead of chomping bars, I am enjoying mugs of Options low-calorie hot chocolate, now half-price at Sainsbury’s for just £2.

Don’t bottle it. Doing Dry January has been especially tough this year.

Now, we apparently spend an average £6.22 on a bottle of wine.

So even a sensible “one bottle a week” drinker has already pocketed £12.44.

Stick with it and treat yourself instead to a bottle of Nosecco — alcohol-free prosecco — currently reduced from £3.50 a bottle at Asda to just £2.75.

Meat-freebies. More than half a million of us are doing a meat-free month to kick off the year.

According to, a no-meat shop should trim our trolley bill by 40 per cent.

The average main meal with meat or fish costs around £1.77 per person but meat-free is £1.06.

If you want to keep saving, Lidl’s Meatless Farm Co range is great value.

Get two burgers for just £1.99.

Put it out. The average price of 20 cigarettes is around £12.73.

So someone who smokes ten a day spends £6.37 every day — or a hefty £2,325.05 over the whole year.

So far you would have saved £89.18 by quitting for these past two weeks.

Come on, you can do it!
