Being poor is the same but different

We're about to go from an 'only-just-surviving' to a 'not-sure-we-can-survive' income. I would have thought that having a degree, years of experience and a demanding full time job that I dislike would qualify us for a slightly nicer life. It turns out that I am wrong. So, in our effort to cut costs we took a (somewhat deflated) trip to Aldi and discovered our favourite brands for way cheaper! We spent £35 in total, a huge saving compared to the usual £60+ at Sainsburys....

ok, so maybe the brands are not exactly the same, but the thing I've learnt from being skint is that appearances are deceptive, and mostly people can hardly ever tell...


See, we can still enjoy Ambrosia, Tropicana, Helmann's, Special K and the New York Bagel Co. Or at least something similar.
