    Well just noticed what I said.... normally about £100 when we go weekly shopping and thats for 4 of us........ so i was kinda wrong.

    Doubt it, you need more than that.

    lol :thumbsup:

    haha, that's impossible! I pay £35 a week rent which is the cheapest out of everyone I know as I have the smallest room in my flat. then £15 a week on top of that for food... and about £20 a month on nights out, if not more. and another £20 on coffee... :oops: this doesn't even include clothes... we wont go there.... haha... also... my many trips abroad... lol... to think i'm a student!

    Yup bedsit £60pm around the carp areas of leeds inclding bills. £10 per week on food......baked beans on toast gets repetitive, but I love jacket potatoes, and tuna mayonaise, easily buy enough for a week with £10

    Don't think it is really possible today! I paid my mortgage earlier a few years ago, so no shelter worries, but for just £100 it would be hard going.
    I was taking to an old couple a month or so ago, they were telling me that the husband used to bring home 10 shillings and sixpence (55p) in 1935. That was supposed to pay their mortgage, food and fuel, as well as clothing the kids, for a week.

    they mgiht be thinking of the food they eat etc.... plus... kids toys are far more expensive now a days... £30 for a game... ridiculous!

    Food, I can do. I used to aim for £100 a month on food expenses when I was in my previous job, actually (Dell, btw - the wages are rubbish). It's not too hard. Just got to budget £3.30 a day for food, which can be quite easily done if you eat a punnet of grapes or strawberries for breakfast (this cost from 50p to £1 at my local fruit and veg shop) and eat a couple of ready meals from Iceland for lunch and dinner. It leaves you 30p extra per day, which works out as about five slices of bread, which is ample to stave off hunger if the ready meals and grapes aren't enough. Lidl's great for cheap food, too. I used to make awesome meals for under a quid courtesy of that place.

    Shelter though, it'd be possible if you could invest in a caravan and could find somewhere where it could park long term. Mate of mine nearly did this for uni one year. Apart from that though, council tax alone might take you over the £100 mark.

    ok so bus shed/shelter.

    why do u ask anyways. is it for one month? or a way of living? if its a way of living then you on very low income and therefore would be entitleted to benefits.

    I would actually struggle to live on £100 a week let alone a month... :oops: I only spend about £50 a month on clothes though. I don't buy brands... so nobody can judge me on which brands I wear. plus i'm not a chav.

    joking, no. i got two pound a week pocket money. what does a thirteen year old need money for?? was only ten years ago, surely things couldnthave changed that much in this amoount of time.

    Team leader sounds like an important job, then you see his pay and its not much better than minimum wage, would prob make more than that working full time in Tesco :giggle:

    I think the kid (I am not sure which post you are talking about) sponsors his studies as well ?

    oh well to be honest 100 quids will be enough to survive down here in Pakistan, I know I can live like a king (if I am spending on myself and parties alone) with around 300 quids

    yeah when i last worked (FT mum) i was on minimum wage as receptionist and came close to that, round our way it would barley cover the rent on a house.

    my old flat was 520pcm, two bed. nice location, in bad place (medway towns)
    friend pays 630pcm for two bed house in nasty area too (white rd estate if any one knows it-chatham)

    not to mention council tax 80pound a month give or take

    Thats expensive is'nt it, but still better than what I had to pay when I was in central london for a while, even though shared flat with a couple of mates

    yeah london costs lots but then pay is better there. to get to london to work it cost my other half over 250 amonth on the train from medway, though we have mortgage now so no worries on the renatl prices.

    Supermod

    No way. A week I would struggle...
