Are you ready for the rainy day?


rainy day


I’ve never been a big saver, I tend to spend the money I have on, well things, life, *cough*…..tea cups….

But I have been wondering if I should start to save for that rainy day.  Although I do wonder about people who save for that rainy day and then decide that they are always ‘skint’, I’m sure there would be some way of putting a little bit aside for when the pitter patter comes. (Oh, before you all start knitting booties, by that I am talking typing about the rain. As in, that day I need the money for something extra special. Not little feet. No. Not for me, thanks. )

Because when the rain comes, although it might seem a good idea to snuggle down under the duvet and watch movies all day, the reality is there will still be those tea cups that I will be wanting to purchase.

What about you? Are you a saver?



  1. I always ensure I have a bit put by, mainly because I only have the one income coming in and if anything goes wrong/needs fixing there ain't no-one gonna help me.
    Something I started doing last year, just for treats, is to put all the £2 coins I get into a tin. Someimes I go weeks without getting any and then a load seem to come along together - it is surprising how quickly it mounts up. (I can't be doing with saving smaller coins, it'd take forever to amass a decent amount.)

  2. No rainy day... no no no rainy days for me.

  3. Living in the UK we probably have too many rainy days to keep up with - in other words BUY THE CUPS! Jane x

  4. I've always been a big saver. But when I spend, I spend big - like a trip to India.

  5. Before I bought a house I used to be the best saver and now it all goes on repairs and upkeep and the mortgage. I wish I had some set aside for a rainy day.

  6. I'm a saver dude, saving for future I guess. I'm of jewish descent so I just can't help it.

  7. I'm a huge saver ... and I'm married to an impulsive spender. As a result I'm in charge of our accounts. I always try to set aside the same amount of money every pay into a 'do not touch' account. That money then goes to things like holidays, new camera gear, or house updates :)
