Found this fantastic blog, A Girl Called Jack, on how to live on £10 a week. Amazing recipes. On my £43,000 a year senior lecturer’s salary I never need to learn how to cook sensibly and li, ve frugally: I either ate out or down the pub with mates, in the university canteens or staff restaurants, or ate Marks & Spencer’s ready meals.
Now, on disability benefits and the tiny amount of “permitted work” that the DWP graciously allows me to do while in the ESA Support Group, I’m not earning enough to live on. And I’m getting sick to death of beans on toast.
