Does anyone else have this? And how do you cope ?? Really really worried. About finances. DP works all the hours he can in low paid work. Not much chance of getting anything better. We have no family help with childcare so I haven't been able to get a job... As soon as all kids are school hopefully I'll be able to get something. I just can't stop worrying about money.
No unfortunately he works all different shifts. Nightshift, backshift, earlies. And to make it even harder he only finds his shifts out a week in advance every Thursday.... He has been promoted though and most likely will be again in the next year but it doesn't come with a massive amount of extra money.
Hope you don't mind me posting as I don't have kids but you could try money saving for your 'job' trying to find offers/ vouchers/ competitions. Try money saving expert competitions board for comps. It's not guaranteed obviously but you never know! I also do surveys where you are paid in return for doing them, mine has been limited as most surveys are for families and parents.
It's not going to make a fortune but could help you feel better about it and could be done whenever depending on DPs shifts
Yeah those are great tips. I already do try and enter free completions and do surveys. I also have quite a successful Depop where I sell on anything we don't need (lots of I'll slim in to it clothes) We can Scrape by until there in school I guess. Would just really appreciate speaking to someone in the same boat I guess
