So that thing recently said that the average person needs £14.4k a year to live off. That's just over a grand a month.
I reckon (though I don't pay council tax, so add maybe £100 a month or whatever council tax is) I *need* £500 a month to live.
- occasionally going out
- occasionally non-too-expensive purchases (certainly no £400 phones, god damn HTC desire, how I want you so much..)
that doesn't cover any automative expenses but they're not necessary for me. I guess you could add on £200 a month for that?
So if I was a council tax payer with a car it would be £800 a month.
I'm asking out of curiosity but also because I'm begging for money atm and told the person I'm begging that's how much I reasonably need to live off a month. (I'm not begging a random btw but I just don't like asking for money, even from family)
