How much money do you have in your bank right now?

July 19, 2015 Off By Laura TMOT
Can you give me the amount to the nearest pound, ten, hundred? Do you even have a vague idea? I know Gaming Daddy of Two wouldn’t have a clue how much he has which is why I have his bank app on my phone. You see if I don’t know exactly how much money is in each of our accounts and what is due to come in or go out each day I get a little bit twitchy. I think it is the fact that I used to work in accounts that has me like this but I do like to think that I am not alone in my mild money obsession. In fact when Satsuma loans sent me this quiz I was really interested to see how my friends and readers would answer too.

The quiz did come as a bit of a shock to me as I really did think that I was fairly savvy about money but I don’t know the interest rates on my bank accounts and I have never changed banks to move to one that had a better rate. I do however change energy supplier regularly and I am surprised that 10% of those surveyed said they didn’t change suppliers as they don’t have time.

Overall I didn’t do too bad with a score of 33 but there was certainly room for improvement.

It really shocks me some of the results from the survey, for example 12% of people are always in their overdraft and only 37% of people check their bank balance once a week where I need to check at least once a day. Check out this video to see what other people answered and why not leave me a message with your score as I would love to see how money savvy you are.
