I agree with you here...just 15 years ago starting out at work, earned a mere 30% of what I do now, yet I still paid my rent, bills, bought my food,
paid for a car, ate lots of takeaways and went out drinking or drank beer at home ALL THE TIME. Yes, not proud of it, but I was a young bloke and it
was what we did.
Now - earn so much more, pay rent, pay bills, buy food, pay for a car, wont go out drinking because a night out "up town" is £100 easily. To me
£100 just "seems" a lot of money, and hard to justify spending on a night out!
I used to spend £30 and that was cabs, bars, clubbing and a doner kebab to finish the night off!
Chocolate bars - used to be 30p, now nearer 90p.
Petrol. Wow what can you say - I recall paying 67pence a litre, now at 139 pence and its been higher than that too.
We are being slowly squeezed on everything so we all have a little less each year...
