How would you half that? I mean, maybe if your mortgage was paid off, but the NE average mortgage is 450, then say 100 energy (conservative, given the hikes), 100 council tax and water, 50 internet and mobile, plus insurance. That’s about half. Are we assuming you spend zero on food, don’t have a car and cycle or walk everywhere?If it was just me I could get away with half that no bother. Still get out for the match etc, odd other night out etc etc.
Need loads more with kids.
