After read­ing the ar­ti­cle ‘What kind of spender are you?’ (Jan­uary 2), I was left dumb­struck re­al­is­ing that I fit the Ms Gen­er­ous cat­e­gory. As your ar­ti­cle ex­plains, I love to shower my fam­ily and friends with ex­pen­sive gifts even though they don’t ex­pect them of me and quite of­ten the ex­pense throws my bud­get com­pletely off track.

In fact, now I’m em­bar­rassed to ad­mit that I feel good about the fact that I might have ‘sac­ri­ficed’ my pri­or­i­ties for the sake of my fam­ily. Why do I do it? I don’t know right now but I am go­ing to be do­ing some se­ri­ous in­tro­spec­tion to find out.

I am Ms Risky and now plan to stop frit­ter­ing away money and start sav­ing. Let me know how you get on! Karen, Ed­i­tor

The real-life fea­ture on the anorexic girl Lau­ryn Lax who was saved by the peo­ple in her gym was very heart-warm­ing (‘I’m happy for the first time in life’ Jan­uary 2).

What I liked was the way a group of strangers came to­gether to help the girl fight the prob­lem and did not judge or crit­i­cise her. Lau­ryn is very lucky to have friends like th­ese as they clearly have saved her life.
