As I sat in traffic on the way home tonight I got to musing about how much I’m going to miss the M25 when we move up north! I then started to think about what it would be like to commute to my current place of work from County Durham. One of the reasons we are moving is that we will be able to buy a house outright thus saving us £1000 a month in mortgage. I also spend around £350 a month on fuel commuting back and forth. I worked out that I could get a flat near to where I work and drive down on a Sunday and back on a Friday and still have more money (like £650) more than I have now.
I also worked out that I’d actually spend 3 hours a week less driving!
