What Would You Do With £1,700?

In any normal month we don’t have much money spare. John’s wages cover the majority of our bills but being self-employed means that I am constantly waiting for invoices to be paid and sometimes, left wondering whether I can pay all of the bills on time each month. I never had this as a plan for us as a family but it still works better going back to the awful low paid job I was in before I went on maternity leave. Things may be hard but they’re still better than working near 50 hours a week for not much over minimum wage as a manager of over 20 staff.

If you’re anything like us, you might spent hours daydreaming about what you might do if you won the lottery or came into a bit of money somehow. I do it more than I would like to admit and I can find myself losing time thinking about it sometimes.

Did you know that the average payout for PPI claims is £1,700? That amount of money would be a huge amount for us and it could do so many different things. We could pay off a whole chunk of Erin’s nursery fees for the rest of the year, we could get our worn our living carpet replaced or we could book a week all inclusive somewhere for next summer! Unfortunately, the more sensible options would win out and the holiday would be put to one side.

If you have ever had PPI, or think you might have had at some point, it is definitely worth trying to claim. The PPI deadline is just over a year away so you have until 29th August 2019 to claim. I know that might sound like there is still loads of time but once that date has passed, you’ll no longer be able to claim and it would be such a shame to miss out on money you’re entitled to.

What could £1,700 do for you and your family?
