Christmas is over and as is usual at this time of the year we are left with an expanded waistline and a diminished bank balance. (Wouldn't it be great if, just for once, the situation was reversed and we could greet the New Year with a diminished waistline and an expanded bank balance?).

However, before we get down to juggling figures in an attempt to improve the financial situation, why not try the following simple maths test?


READY? Try it ……..

Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?
Simple isn't it?

Did you get 5000? Sorry, WRONG.
Quickly try again. Still 5000?
Oh dear! You do need financial help. (Use your calculator for the correct answer - and for those without a calculator, the answer is at the end of this article)

Don't worry, it's only fun! Nothing to do with age - most adults get it wrong - particularly the 'Smart-Alecs'.
This was sent to me by a clever friend. I don't need to mention names, as she knows who she is. I will pass on a couple more of her 'Dementia Tests' (as she calls them) in future articles. (Needless, to say, I got 5000 as well).


Now to get back to the serious business of saving money, here are a few ideas.

1. Do you feel that you deserve a reward after all the hard work over the Festive Season?

Why not take advantage of the National Express current offer. THE OVER 60's CAN GO ANYWHERE FOR £4.50 OR £9 RETURN IF YOU TRAVEL BEFORE 31 MARCH. JUST BOOK 3 DAYS IN ADVANCE. Last year, when I took advantage of a similar offer, I met a lady who had made the most of it and had travelled from the South of England to Scotland in order to visit a friend and was in the process of doing likewise in the West Country. So why not choose a place or person you fancy visiting and then sit back and enjoy the scenery? Visit www.nationalexpress.com for route and times.
