So the gremlin of Paretai Drive reckons he cant afford to live on $1000 a week? Whatever.
Time to make do. Muriel Newman put out an excellent book on budgeting a few years back.
And here are some handy hints on how to live on $1000 a week.
- Make your own brekky, lunch and dinner.
- Clean your own toilet.
- Do the dishes by hand .
- Turn off the spa pool.
- Shop at Pak and Save
- Take the bus.
- Sell all the clothes you dont wear on Trademe - in fact any spare stuff - like breitling watches, your missus sparklers, would be good.
- Get your missus to dye her own hair at home.
- You could do her brazilian and pluck her chin hairs.
- shampoo the dog your self.
Thats just a few for starters..
