British word(s) of the day v. 3

Today’s words of the day are about money. I’ve argued that the Brits are strangely and unreasonably obsessed with the cost of stuff, and that things here are not as expensive as they think.  At the moment, I am quite frankly benefiting from the exchange rate with the US dollar!  Today we look at the words the Brits use for description of money things.  This is slang, so definitions are not dictionary.com but from this site on British English.

Dosh – Money / cash ‘I haven’t got much dosh to give you.’

Skint – Broke. No money.  ‘I’m skint, I wont be able to buy the DVD today.’
