..spent cash? Real cash. The folding stuff, coins that type of stuff.
Me? I can`t remember.....
I've noticed recently that increasingly I get asked if I want a receipt. Of course I do. It should be offered as an integral part of the transaction. If you haven't got a receipt how do you prove to the security on your way out of the supermarket that you've paid for everything in your bag? Especially when you look as shifty as me.If you never use a pound coin then how do you get your trolley at the supermarket?
Incidentally, I volunteer at our village community shop and I would say that just under half of the customers pay with cash. That percentage went well down during April but has steadily risen again since then. Interestingly over 90% of the customers who pay by card do not ask for a copy of their transaction slip, I don't understand that at all.
Yes that’s the one, down a step and room for one at a time. Wait outside for it to be cooked. It’s about 40 minutes from home so shopping trips (nearest M&S) are usually timed so we can get a nice fish and chip tea!The one opposite the pier? Was there a couple of months ago and the fish and chips were as good as we'd had in a very long time!!
Leave the house and take the tinfoil off your head. Might help your memory.
Meanwhile a few stalls on my local market are cash only. You know that strange “outside” thing . Where you walk out in fresh air and don’t get freaked out by seeing someone else within 2 metres for a second as you pass by. In case they breathe nearby.
Meanwhile the COVID fog is moving down south apparently. Having infected the north , the fog is about to hit the south east.
I did a similar thing donkey's years ago when I wanted to give up smoking. There was a musical instrument I was hankering after, so I stopped smoking - not easy - and every time I would have popped out to get another packet (once a day or so!) I put the money I would have spent into a jar. Just watching the pot fill up was enough to keep me on the straight and narrow. By the (surprisingly short) time I had saved up enough to but what I wanted, I had broken the habit and it had brought home to me how much money I'd been just burning. Never smoked again.Up to a few years ago any spare change in wallet or pocket ended up in a jar which in turned up in a building society account , the idea was that it would cover the cost of replacing fridge ,or any other white goods , I was fortunate that nothing broke down and the money ended up being absorbed in to my general savings, it was a complete painless way of saving
