I was speaking to a friend yesterday who was boring me with their moaning about how "skint" they always are. Turns out, after bills and essentials he is left with just over £800 to last him the month... To me that's far from "skint" yet he seems to think that most others will have much more then that! So GC... What do you think? Is he "skint"...? I've added a poll which should be anonymous (I think) so answers would be interesting... Just to make it easier to compare - bills includes mortgage/rent, council tax, insurances, gas/electric, car finance, loan/credit repayments and food. Doesn't include putting money away for savings... Household total... I'm not trying to be nosey... I just think he's way out with his whining!!!
