Yep I'm one of those 5th DaveYour OK though eh Otto
But jeez, living on £10,000 for a household is just crazy....... I dont know how they do it - not in these times of higher bills etc !
I'm careful with money Dave have being for many many years, I have no debt and do not live a wild lifestyle in today's meaning of lifestyle.I very much doubt that otto ! :d
Thats about 4k more than this household
Yes it's tough for anyone on a low fixed income without any chance of a sudden increase to their finances in the near or distant future Tig's.or like in our position, fixed income as I am a carer to my mrs, income suppport sorted, rent and council tax allowance etc, but until Mrs tiggz has a diagnosis, Fixed income, Rising costs of living......
Thing is to live within your means.
No spanish holidays and nearly new BMW's for me!
:iagree: Since meeting my GF I am practically debt free. She has got a good money head on her and it has rubbed off on me now and I am in a good position.
Obviously I'm not on a very low wage which does help but my plan is to secure as much as I can by the time I leave so I haven't got much of a mortgage to pay off when I do in a few years. That way I can take a wage drop depending on what job I do and not worry too much about it.
I feel for those who get hit hard. It can't be good. My mum and step dad are in the same situation. They really struggle and I help them out where I can.
