Recently, I have felt as if every penny I have spare has rolled out of my hand in to the tight fist of some multi-national millionaire! Today, some came back my way. Firstly, I had £10 of Tesco clubcard vouchers, which I exchanged for £30 of Cafe Rouge vouchers and Dearly Beloved and I shall treat ourselves to lunch out in the half term break. It will be our first dining out experience in over a year.
I’ve worked that out as a ‘windfall’ of £108 in one day. I have had a financially astute day. I’ve paid a monthly installment to South West Water. I’ve over paid my 0% credit card by another £100. I’ve read my meters myself to save money and submitted my readings online. I have worked out, that in my ten years of teaching, by taking a packed lunch every day, and with the average cost of £2.50 a day, that I have saved £5000. Just a few days ago, I felt skint and now, I’m rolling in it.
