Nowhere near as much as a petrol delivery man!

And again Paul - it would have been good to see who's on what so we can all adjust our replies accordingly !
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.
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.
....cheers for that domtyler....feel much better about shelling out for my 40 inch LCD now.....couldn't live without it and my Sky+ these days!!!!......
£13 a week. More if i do an extra round Oh and if the guy is feel generouse then i might get some free sweeties
My salary isn't as high as it would be if I did my job in the private sector but I do get to play with bikes all day, get ALL my bikes and stuff free....and get young Italian women sent over on work experience
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?
There there, have a virtual tenner on me.
I was never so loaded as when I had my paper round - about a fiver a week.....
Once you get working, get a property, then you'll be skint !!!
Cheers, of to the virtual pub now
Opps, see thats why I'm always broke. Got to remember alcohol is not a necessity.
If it were £ per unit of effort made at work, I think I'd figure near the top.
Sadly though I have to rely on others to tell of making huge savings by buying huge TVs.
Age when income was furthest (in a positive way) from outgoings I'd say was around 17!
