It's a lot of money for a broke student that has never seen £1000. But for someone like Simon Cowell £1000 means nothing.

So it all depends on your circumstances.

It depends.

Are you a student with no financial dependencies? Yes it's effing loads?

Are you a full time professional with rent and loads of arrears to pay? Then no not really but it's still not an amount to be sniffed at.

Can you afford to lose £1,000?

It is for a part time job. and if you’re not paying rent or anything. like every month. but not as a one off.

Its all about perspective

If you are poor and struggling - then yes its a lot
If you're a child/teen living rent free with parents - then yes its a lot
if you've got a spouse, kids, mortgage, bills to pay etc - then its a starting point but definitely not a lot
if you're very wealthy then its probably not considered much

It entirely depends on your attitude, I could have billions of pounds, and I'd still regard £1000 as lots of money, but then again I find spending money to be a physically painful exercise, and I'm a very odd individual.

Depends on a lot of factors, really. A year ago £1000 would have made my life significantly easier, now it would have much less of an impact.

Yes, that's almost 2 weeks worth of disposable income for most people.
