I am a single parent (have been for 15 years) and this is the first time I feel I wont have enough money for food in January.
I work 30 hours a week in the community- I have to put petrol in my car to do my job but how can i buy petrol when I cant feed my 2 children
I made sure I put enough money in electric meter from December wages.
I have cancelled rent direct debit -£450 but I will go into the office and pay £350 as I don't want to get to far behind. This will allow other direct debits to go out which include water and TV license.
I have not had any child support for the last 6 months which I realise I was stupid to relay on but it helps towards everyday living. CSA don't seem to bothered when I phone them and just tend to give me false hope which comes to nothing.
What can i feed my children age 15 and 9 so they are full up and not looking for extras.
Thanks for the ebay idea.. I have sorted out a few of dd's old tops I do feel a bit bad selling them on as I was given them, they are Gap, Zara and Monsoon so I will put them on and hope for at least a pound.
I will also have a look to see if I am entitled to any Housing benefit.
Dinner was at my dads yesterday and we left with some leftovers and dinner is always at my mums on a Friday as she picks my girls up for me because I work later on a Friday and so she feeds us all.
