“It’s the 17th September, still a week away from payday, all you have left is £6.20 to your name. In the cupboard there is only enough food to feed the family for three days and on top of this your one year old only has four nappies left.”
This is the situation we found ourselves this month. We knew it would be tight, it always is, but this month was worse than others. Normally, a week before payday we at least have enough food to last even if there isn’t any money left.
When you’re faced with a situation like that, what is the first thing you do? Well the first thing we did was panic, then cry, then panic again.
For the first time in a long time we had gotten ourselves into a situation that I was unsure how to get out of.
