How Far Would £60 A Week Get You?

Recommended Posts

it would pay for my food and give me 30 quid a week spare (if I was single I would be living in shared accommodation all inc and rent (and .'. bills) would be paid by the state). It is how you play it, lots of people are also disabled/have mental problems.

I know a bloke who was made redundant from back office work at a bank, living in shared accommodation, now being a doley.

He's had a very good summer on Bournemouth Beach.

£30 discressionary spend, more than many who work.

£60 is plenty

Unless you happen to be unfortunate enough to have any debt obligations taken on whilst working.

If you're really unlucky you might even have inadvertently taken out a massive mortgage secured on an overpriced house.

Wow £30.00!

Claim the dole > my neighbour was 'laid off' two months ago.

So how much do your Gas/Electric/Water/Tv licence bills etc work out (per week) over 12months?

Bills would be higher (coz u would be at home(not working!) i presume ) unless you freeze without heat and sit in the dark without lights on in the winter!

£ ? - left for "discretionary spend"

More 'blinkered', media brainwashed, poor bashing on HPC!

Agreed, I spent a year on the rock 'n' roll back in '97. That was the worst time I can conceivably think of; the nadir of anyone's existence.

Rice/pasta and beans was my staple diet. Nom nom.

Great stuff from the Grauniad, the home of middle-class guilt-ridden hand wringing. I thought they'd lost their touch.

I especially appreciate the "Matt", clearly not making any kind of style statement in his little picture.

Tip for Matt: A job doesn't need to mean a PAYE payslip. Ask around who wants odd jobs done for cash and you can clear £60 in a day.

You'd make that pick metal stuff off the floor and weighing it in.

you get your ass on a bike and pedal for work. call centre work. quality work, or of you cant work how about studying for work in a call centre or IT specialist.

as an IT specialist you can earn over 40k and get a company car. instead of sitting at that grey breakfast table with string vest washing in the background, you could be dressed in a dapper business suit, finishing your brown wholegrain toast on the move while closing your business laptop and kissing your new wife goodbye...as you step into a BMW 5 series business car on your mock tudor driveway.

just give www.ITfinderstrainingservicesltd.co.uk a call....

I won't be happy until I have a white driveway criss-crossed with black beams.
