A$H Money









Today marks a year since one of us in the OK team gave up 'normal cigarettes'. 365 days of being 'fag free'. Hurrah to Oli!
To celebrate this special anniversary, we got the calculator out. Whatever money he had saved we were going to make him spend on an over the top prize to reward himself.
So Oli - previous smoker of 10 light strength cigarettes a day, now partial to OK Light e-cigarettes instead - here is your sum:

PREVIOUS HABIT
One box of 10 tobacco cigarettes (circa 2011) = £3.80 x 7 x 52 = £1383.20 per year

NEW HABIT
Uses Refill Tips x 3 (same as 120 cigarettes) which last him for about one month = £9.98 x 12 = £119.76 per year
So the saving (1383.20 - 119.76) = £1263.44

When questioned, Oli has revealed that he would like to spend this on a month away living it up in Argentina, but in reality it would probably go towards fixing his leaky roof.
So what will you spend your money on?
