This is a humble tenner.
With this you could order a pizza, buy some make up, have a manicure. Well, you get the idea, the list is endless.
This difference about this £10, is it is my £10 and I am rather proud of it.
I will explain why.
Last Thursday I got paid, and I have had a lot to pay for.
- A new tyre £51
- A new shower £59.50
- A boiler service and a gas safety certificate. £63
- The utilities bill (quarterly)£174
- The landline telephone/internet bill (quarterly). £90
- 1 Christmas and 3 birthday presents £am not telling. They all read my blog.
So on Thursday I took out £70 in cash. It costs me £50 to pay for petrol for 1 week for my little POLO. That left me £20 to live on for 1 week.
I spent £1.33 on some food for the month (I had a £15 voucher) and the rest got used to buy drinks for lunchtime £1 (4x cans of cola from Poundstretcher) I also joined the office pool for the Euromillions… twice -£2 (we only buy a ticket as an office when the jackpot is big and we are fed up. Plus I cannot not buy one as I arrange it). That accounts for £4.33. I also have had a few cups of tea or lime and sodas’(the cheapest drink I can find to order anywhere, it always comes in at between 30p-85p) whilst out at business meetings held off site.
So this £10 has now been in my purse for 7 days, without getting spent.
That £10, means tomorrow when I go and withdraw money for the next 7 days I only need to get out £60.
These little wins please me no end.
