You may well have read some other posts about this awesome idea from MoneySupermarket.com. You can read in more detail about it here: www.moneysupermarket.com/epic/pocket-some-extra-cash/. The idea is to 'celebrate life's little wins', for example, when you find an old £20 in your pocket. (Don't you just love finding money you forgot about?) I was asked what I would do if I were to suddenly find a twenty pound note, and was kindly given the money to complete the challenge by spending the money in any way I wanted!
When I first heard about the twenty pound challenge, I immediately envisaged browsing my local Debanhams beauty department, picking out my favourite MAC or NARS product and then gleefully carrying it home in its beautiful chic black bag. But I swallowed these slightly selfish visions when Jonny, my boyfriend, made a passing comment about how he wished he had the money to go and see a Premier League football match at nearby Villa Park that was being advertised at Uni. Being the poor students that we are, he couldn't afford to spend the £20 (perfect amount, flukey or what?!) on the heavily discounted tickets that were being sold by the football appreciation society. I sadly cannot share his appreciation for football; it is SO not my thing, but here was the perfect way to spend the £20!
