What would I spend a spare £100 on?

I don’t know about you but it is very rare I have £1oo to spare. It’s quite tricky to think what I would spend it on if I didn’t have to buy shoes or food or pay the bills. Hmm let me think?

There is a charity I love and support completely called SightSavers who work to cure avoidable blindness. It costs just £30 to perform a SightSaving operation for an adult and far less for a child. Isn’t that incredible and completely life changing?


people around the world are blind


of this can be cured or prevented

I would give them £30 of my spare £100. Most definitely. You can donate to them too if you wish here

I would also buy my children £10 worth of books each. We would go to Oxfam and buy them preloved so they got lots for their money, the charity benefit too and they are contributing to a greener environment. My children adore to read and whilst the love the library they do love to own special books which they can read over and over.

With the £50 remaining I would book a train to London and meet my lovely friend Chris, from foodie blog Life is Delicious and have her bring a veggie picnic for us to share (she cooks like a dream.) She would have to bring some of her special strawberry and cream cake. It’s been WAY too long since I have seen her and since I have visited the big smoke.

So that’s what I would do with £100!


The TSB plus account has just turned one year old and the maximuminterest you can earn in a year from the Plus Account is £100 AER  hence they asked me what I would do with £100. What a lovely thing to think about …has proper brightened my day!

    Cool relaxing post that gives us some nice tips on where to spend. If I had a spare £100 I would go to an amusement park and probably also on a picnic with friends. If there is anything left – I would probably leave it aside for now. My goal is to start investing as soon as possible. So, frankly speaking, I try to spend less and save up more.

    Great choices. I like to buy pre-loved books, too. You can get more books for your cash whilst supporting a good cause, win win! x
