002 £800 a month for the things you love

You might think that you are good with money and that you have enough but your outlook about money, your values, and what's important in your life changes through the years.

In this episode of Your Money Sorted Teachers' Podcast, I'll be sharing my own personal experience on incidental spending and why I believe that unpromoted teachers should have around £800 each month to spend on the things that matter to them most.
