    But what are the outgoings?

    And I factor in the £1,800 I save on a Season Ticket by commute cycling, thousands of pounds by having a ten year old car and hundreds of pounds by just owning one old fashioned TV etc.

    You may very well be wrong on that count Crockers, my new 40 inch LCD telly has a power rating of just 30 watts in use and 0.3 watts in standby. The one I chucked away had a nominal 350 watts rating. I had the old one for about six years, so if the new one lasts as long then it will have paid for itself many times over. Especially with the massive increases in power costs we have had and which are due to rise again.

    Have to say, I'm a bit of a technophobe. Other half takes care of all that.

    I bought my TV from Sainsburys for £85. Knackered now. Next one will be LCD. One of those small ones.

    I'm not tight (!). I prefer to spend money on things like membership of sports clubs and museums etc for the kids.

    I think a better thread might be "What are your outgoings?" Simply because someone on 60k a year with 53K outgoings is going to be worse of than someone on 25k with 15k outgoings. Add to that your geographical position in the country, and if you get on with (or even know) your neighbours, it all contributes to quality of life.

    This thread makes me feel poor ;) I earn less than most of you by the looks of it. But I deserve more than I get, even if I don't work that hard.

    Hilly, don't you think you've caused enough of a stir on the Italian girls thread, without coming on here and rubbing our noses in it? :laugh:
