Are you doing it tough this Christmas?
Answered 11 months ago
Why? Drought? Job loss? Medical issues? Gambling addiction? Victim of crime? Wasted money on cigarettes, drugs and alcohol? Went crazy with credit for shit you didn't need and now you no money left for basics?
For us my husband had a medical issue that meant he was unable to work for 3 months. He is fit now but the site has been shutdown until mid January. We have no savings left and only buying the bare necessities. My casual work is just covering our rent. We volunteer at our local food bank inexchange for food. Feel bad just taking it. Walk everywhere to try and stretch a tank of fuel. No presents this year. Waiting until Christmas food is on sale after the day to celebrate a delayed Christmas
Have an answer?
We know how to budget
We have 5 kids and live off $80k
Each child we spend roughly $200 on presents
I myself are making the spiciest food and having that with a cold glass if wine! I left a emotional abusive and controlling cheater to make a better life.
Big hugs to you!
But I have upcoming things to pay for and organise where I need about $2-3000 and need to be off work without pay as I have no such leave etc and I'm stressing over that.
But I'm not doing things tough by any means
