I'm not actually doing this and expecting a penny, but trying to think outside the box :) we are an average family of 4 ( myself,my husband and two children aged 23 months and 6) we are all healthy but we don't have quality time and I fear the tears are going by and we aren't able to enjoy life as much as I hoped to. Like many others, we have debt! We are doing all we can to pay it off, we don't go out, we have second hand clothes, we scrape where we can. My husband has a job, works 6 days a week, I have a couple of small work from home jobs ( can't afford childcare to get A 'proper' job. Basically, we are struggling! My aim is to pay off the £10k debt we have ( this started gradually, but increased after I was made redundant 1 week before we married, leaving us with no money for Christmas or for food as that's what my wage covered then, so the credit card has paid for our food for the past year,plus other necessary things like appliances that needed repairing/car issues etc...if only we can clear the debt then that frees up £300 a month meaning we can afford to LIVE and maybe even buy our own home.
I know we are amongst many in the same situation but I'm running out of ways to raise money and it's just getting me down. I want to enjoy my boys growing up but I spend every night and day worrying over our debt that I can't
Enjoy the little things anymore even though I should.
Feel completely ridiculous doing this when there's people so much worse off than us and even dying! I am grateful for my family and what we do have but even if I can raise a few extra ££'s then this is all worthwhile
