To have a whinge about money

(53 Posts)

We're skint and its not looking likely that ill get anything this year for christmas or my birthday.
Normally I'm not that bothered as I get bits for myself year round but this year every penny has gone on dc - rightly so but I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself. My roots are down to my ears, my split ends are insane, I'm using teenage dds make up as mine has all gone blush and I recently dropped a dress size which was great but now all my jeans are too big and I can't afford to replace.

Oh and the screen is cracked to death on my phone.

I am very grateful for everything I have and I know there are millions worse off...

Tell me iabu but I needed a bit of a moan. Sorry. Thanks. Feel free to join in shameless moaning.

You don't have to have a clickable name to pm, just look at the blue bar on each post and on the far right it should say 'message poster'.

Something we've done to earn a few extra quid is to set up an extra email account and use it to enter competitions online. We've won some really bizarre things but then sell them on eBay. Setting up the email account means you don't get spammed to death on your normal one.

Can you get your hair done cheaply at your local college? Usually they have training beauty therapists and hairdressers.

Sainsburies for jeans?

Sorry OP I came across a bit moany there! I will go to poundland because there's amazing stuff there! It's great cos I can spend a tenner and it looks like the kids have loads of presents! On the plus side the second hand toys and games I've actually saved about 70 pounds, and they don't have any packaging either!

My favorite thing at the moment from the 99p stores is 5 litres of washing up liquid.

I will however maintain the tradition of being drunk in charge of a christmas dinner! Lol! [Wine]
