i'm skint, always been skint, my dad was skint etc etc.......yet i seem to have good stuff because i always keep my eye open for a bargain. stuff that costs loads that people aspire to.....gets sold when something new comes out. then i strike!! i'm skint with a wide arched mk2 escort, gt40 rep, 9 guitars and basses, 2 klein's. a san an, sts, cortina p100, 10 rc helicopters (not cheap co-axial shit) etc etc
sounds like a fair few quids worth, but i use my loaf, and only buy what i like when i see it cheap!
suppose people like me feed off the victims of the consumer society!!
Your just my sisters kind of guy, she is the best at getting bargains even when she buys new, she can get things from even the big high street stores at silly money, mainly because they are so desperate to get rid of this bloody argumentative, bloody minded annoying woman that they'll practically give things to her to get her out of the shop, me if I tried it they'd probably double the price
She's well off now but when she bought her first house she was struggling as a working single mother yet she could make money stretch seemingly infinitely far.
Her first house was an ex council house and the council were working next door and the vibrations knocked a glass model car off her TV and it smashed, it was a few years old, she called the council and they asked for a price, she told them it was only available at Harrods for £600 (it cost my brother £20) and they paid up
I wouldn't have had the guts to do that.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
