    SergioSena reacted to JunkBond in Budgeting challenge - minimising expenses   
    I have this down to a fine art I believe, I don't waste any money and only spend on household bills.
    No TV, no gym, no alcohol, wear all my sons hand me downs. Hell I only flush the toilet once a day. 👍
    I make one teabag last all day and don't have milk!
    I spend about £350 per month. Missus buys the grub but she is tighter than me. 🤣

    Been spending a lot of time catching up with the FIRE movement lately.
    Getrichslowly.org & MrMoneyMustache.com are two excellent resources.
    There's lots of really good personal blogs & podcasts, too. 
    I spent good few hours reading through https://fi180.com/  - really inspiring sutff, and there are links in all the articles that take you on a merry tour of some of the best FI sites around.
    https://radicalpersonalfinance.com/ is an excellent podcast.
    The BBC even touched on it, shock horror: http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20181101-fire-the-movement-to-live-frugally-and-retire-decades-early
    I'm hooked..

    Diversification in this area is not an option for me.  She is an excellent shot (clay pigeon shooting) and she pointed out that I was a large, slow-moving target.  She held up a clay and said she's more used to 'powdering' these so she just couldn't miss - even if I zigzagged.  I took the warning.

    That video is very good, looking forward for another crack at the oil market. Nice to hear that gold is likely to go lower again in the short term (maybe), hopefully it will time well with the QB release in March fingers crossed. Paying over a grand an ounce as it is at the moment is psychologically difficult for some reason. £950 is fine though.

    SergioSena reacted to Shinus73 in 10 oz JMBULLION bar   
    To clarify my earlier point - I’d agreed to buy the bar, but was then informed that somebody had made a higher offer.
    As I wasn’t intending to enter a negotiation, I decided to withdraw at that stage. 
    I’m willing to accept an innocent explanation or inexperience with how the forum works, but it leaves a slightly sour taste.

    Many thanks to @ThePaleKing
    I received two 2018 sovereigns today. I contacted about these on Wednesday, late afternoon and they were sent, special delivery on Thursday. 
    Seller agreed to send and receive payment on arrival. I offered to pay half upfront but there was no need. 
    Received two sovereigns today and I have paid in full.
    Many thanks and a great display of trust from both sides.

    Nothing wrong with raising prices in a rising market, i do it - one things for sure and that is you will have to drop them in a falling market so it works both ways.

    It is surprising how little money one needs as you get older. I have a ten year old car, a ten year old mobile phone, no Sky TV (or tv at all but that's another topic), no holidays and wear all my kids hand me down clothes.
    I don't have to work, so when the sun shines, I sit in the garden.

    I'm more worried about these fatal bouncy castles at the moment to be honest. There have only been two supposed nerve agent attacks, but the BBC has highlighted the horrendous repeated fatalities that bouncy castles are suddenly leading to.
    It is surely only a matter of time before one of these weapons of massive bounciness are used to attack the Palace of Westminster, they must be banned ASAP and all operators locked up for life. I also fear helium balloons will be the next 'delivery medium'. These deplorable and easily purchased items have to be outlawed immediately.
    How many more clowns will suffer scuff marks to their heads before the Government acts on 'lone wolf' custard pies?

    My mate used to wait till he had quite a few letters and tape the freepost return envelope with them to a sack of knackered old potatoes, then send it back to them, the post office knew that there would be a huge bill and hassle for the TVL people and used to give him a roll eyed look, this was decades ago.
