I dont work but when I did, Ii could get by on a fiver a day. I had my monthly travel pass and the canteen was subsistied, so a dinner was 3/4 euro and a bit of chocolate on the way home.
I can imagine with bus /train fares and a sambo it could be loads more than that now. Oh and I bought a 50gm pack of tobacco about every 4 days. What do you spend ?
