#33 | Results from 2nd March

Here are the results from yesterday’s Mobilise Moments poll.

Do you spend on yourself?

Yesterday we asked: Do you spend money on yourself?

Graph of results to the question "Do you spend on yourself?" 39% say that they do occasionally, whilst 35% say they only do so when necessary.

Since Thursday, last week, we've been looking at all aspects of carers finance. Today our attention turned to whether we spend on ourselves and the results are polarising.

Nearly 39% of us like to spend on ourselves occasionally, whilst 35% say that they would do so, only when it is really necessary. There are then nearly 19% of us who don't have the flexibility in our budgets to spend on ourselves.

What would be one thing you would like to get for yourself that would improve life for you?

Let us know in our Facebook Group.

Caring for ourselves, doesn't have to cost a penny though. Take a read of this excellent blog from Claire on how to love ourselves.
