You must have expensive taste. ...we don't spend that much? We don't smoke... we try to buy local produce whenever possible.  Run a car (fully legal) have a detached home with pool!! we are financially better of here than we were in the uk🤔

If you don't eat out then 100 euro per week is plenty to live on.

As soon as you start eating out particularly in "English" places then you weekly cost could easily double.

Add on 50 euro per week for running a small car so 150 euro a week.

Hi everyone just seems to be getting rather confusing if anyone would like to to answer any of my questions then please send us a personal message because there seems to be a lot of bickering and to tell you the truth it is confusing me because I seem to be reading the same messages over and over again thanks in advance Chris and Pat

Hola   just do your sums    many items are far cheaper in Spaiñ   council tax in the UK  what 100 per month  here €200 per year

a coffee €1 to €1.50    beer a canna €1.50    not sure about fags!    mind newspapers are €2.50? 

But as you are a fixed budget  go very careful  Spaiñ is full of English rouges    more so Car sales and TV program

(1) Car sale   I bought a car from Specialist Vehicles  two weeks later the engine blew up and they would not answer my e-mails and phone calls    I lost €3,000      also if you import a car just look at the costings      (2) I was on TV off the internet   the supplier wanted     €115 at first

then upped it to €275     I then found that with a Sony Brava it has this built in ?? 

I am single and just on a state pension    Mind no Mortgage   now thanks to the need for a loan for a car    I manage OK 

I find food is sort of cheap    wine HO wine a litre is €1.95 if you look around  and it is OK   so to just lay in sun with a glass of wine a few days a week "what can be better"
