I have long upheld that it is the cost of our lifestyle that causes us much unneccesary money stress. Look at this fab infographic form Virgin Money, it makes so much sense…..
Buying lunch from a fancy artisan deli every day rather than taking in your own sandwiches. Buying a fancy mocha chocha latte from a coffee shop on the way into work each morning rather than waiting to use the free coffee in the office. That gym membership you took out during a particularly well-intended January lifestyle shake-up that you’ve only used twice. All of these things can seem like negligible expenditures on a day to day basis.
