Bleeding money

7 posts in this topic

We don't earn anything at the moment, really. So we're quietly bleeding savings. It looks interesting on the 'ol bank account.

There's no budget that could help us right now - our mortgage payments are $100 a month less than we earn. That remaining $100 isn't enough to live off, obviously. We've got a LOT of redraw in there though, we could do this for ages.

Don't you just love jobs that pay monthly, in arrears, a month after you work? Two months of this before we get our first pay crybaby.gif

Makes me want to go down the pub and, you know, spend more savings. On beer.

Good luck with things, I'd be guessing it's quite reassuring that you have savings to fall back on... as painful as it is now.

Don't worry. The government will help out if you are in need.

We're not 'in need' though. We're waiting for a first pay from a new job. As far as they're concerned, we're earning.

Don't get a single penny from those friendly little government people in the meantime. Even if we had no savings at all we wouldn't get anything in these two months.

Now, payday loans are almost always a bad bad idea, but these guys offer cash advances for just 1 cent for the first transaction (to suck people in). If you plan it carefully, it is basically money for nothing.

Have not used personally, but would consider it.
