    Ok thanks I'll look into it but the benefit office said it was 16 hours with the same employer.

    I've also just realised (sorry, having a thick moment) that by then I will be married and my boyfriend will be living here. So that will be £50 per month I won't be spending on travelling to and from London.

    It's not so much the cost of them getting to school that bothers me, it's more the fact that getting to school should be free.

    Here dead we lie because we did not choose
    To live and shame the land from which we sprung.
    Life, to be sure, is nothing much to lose,
    But young men think it is,
    And we were young.

  • I'm happy to post my info on here, but as others have ponted out it's personal and different for each person. I'm luck in that I earn a decent, if slightly irregular, wage, which enables me to clear my debt relatively quickly:

    Income - £2,500 pm
    Debts - £25k :eek:
    Paid per month towards them...£1k :eek: :eek:

    Sometimes I think what I could be spending an extra grand a month on, had I not been so foolish with my money years ago.....!

    Pretty much the same here- income= £2600 pm, debts £25K +, paying off whatever I can afford per month- going to try for a grand a month from now on which will get me cleared in 2 years. If I hadn't been so foolish with my money for years I would have all this spare cash now :o

    you're not alone in thinking that :(

    Hi
    currently I earn between £10-£400 a week depending on how many orders I get but now the wedding season is kinda dropped off (august was very busy) and I'm not earning anything much after this month :o( Thou got a job interview tomorrow for an evening job and if I get it I should bring home about £500 a month :o) fingers crossed!

    Average £400 a month
    Debt about £25k
    Payment £300 a month for another 8 years
    Em Tysoe
    about £12k debt & 7 years left to pay
  • I get about £500 p/m, husband gets about £850. We owe £11100 and we are currently paying £382.50 a month towards debts alone. We're now starting to save as much as possible to be able to pay off a bit of our debts each month.
    Total 'Failed Business' Debt £29,043
    Que sera, sera. <3
