I am ok at the moment because I watch every penny.

Do you have any nectar points or Tesco clubcard vouchers you can use?

I've just decided to take another month easy and focus on going to the gym rather than working too hard.

Also, just spent too much on converse oxs and gig tickets.

same here all my direct debits are due to go out at the end of the month so i cant touch anything in the bank as its taken. i have £25 in my purse to last me till the 6th march just lucky we have a freezer full lol.

im trying to save at the mo, so a proportion of my wages goes straight into a savings account and i force myself to live off the remainder! not fun! lol

To be honest, I don't even normally check when "payday" is, so its not personally an issue for me. Wasn't always the case though, so know how things can be sometimes.

Obviously you'll get fantasists making wild claims... but they really should be back at school today!

I'm sure a dark rodent could sub you a couple of G's till payday.



Give a man a fish....

im not looking forward to march, mums, sisters and dads birthdays!! as well as mothers day!

What I love about most people who say they are skint is that they have thousands hoarded into a saving account for the rainy day that never comes . . .

Every day is a rainy day in my opinion these days!

for 1.30, hmm

loaf of bread, tin of beans, beans on toast!

I know it may sound pompus, but I don't understand people who live like that...

£1.30 to last two days...

Why let yourself get in that situation. Find a nice loan shark.


Seriously, I also don't worry about pay day, and also don't worry about how much I am about to be paid...

I know people who count down the days, but don't really understand it..

Exactly the same for me and again it's only quite recently been the case......;-)

I have savings....but i want to buy a house end of the year....so as soon as i get paid x amount goes into savings and pretend as that money never existed.....

You know sometimes you get unexpected expenses...hence £1.30 for 2 days....i've got enough food at home and all bills have been paid...just means i cant got out or do anything....other than sit at home watch tv and play ps3....which actually doesnt sound too bad

To be fair, I probably have a lot less in my current accounts than I used to. That said, I have been in "can't wait for payday" situations.

of awaiting payday moments......:whistling:

i did have savings up until my other half was made redundant 18 months ago and had no choice but to use it. i also wouldnt go out shopping if i had less than £500 to do so.but things change we now just manage to get by with not alot spare but i cant complain my bills are paid and theres food on the table and clothes on my kids backs so we are alot better off than some. i must say i do miss the lifestyle i had though especially when people mention holidays etc but it isnt the end of the world.

Oooh, la di da.:p

id hate to be relying on payday to come to pay for stuff, i dont really like spending my money lol i just like to see it get bigger and bigger haha.

I dont have a mortgage or anything though so I guess one day when my money has been used for a house etc then I will be watching the money more carefully, by then though should be getting paid more so it should equal itself out

Surely you've been in a position in your earlier years in life when the wages weren't so great, and you couldn't manage your finances as well as you've learned to now.

Therefore you should be able to understand?

I remember one of my first jobs was stacking shelves - £1.19 an hour.
