    Dionne you should speak to your electricity supplier, your being ripped off, something much me wrong! Is one of your neighbours tapping into your supply or something. Or do you have a stash of canabis plants growing under a load of Sodium Lamps??

    We pay about £900 per month in bills. Food is on top of that and varies each month depending how flush we are feeling

    it depends on your income, you have to earn below a certain amount and as dionne and Chris both work they probably earn above it, me and dave wouldnt qualify for childcare costs either as we earn just over the margin.

    I think you can manage on a £150 a month for food if your clever with what you buy, if you buy own brand products and buy ingradients for what you need for that week to make 7 meals and then you have no wastasge, also if your good and stick to your shopping list no extra's (thats where I go wrong)

    god knows what we pay out a month I dont really know something like this (this is gonna scare me now

    £320 morgate
    £80 council tax
    £48 NTL
    £25 gas and elec
    £13 water
    £10 tv lisciene (thats a guestimate)
    £70 loan
    £44 sofa
    £60 car insurance
    £40 t mobile
    £250 food/nappies

    with bits and bobs thats just over a grand, so in theory me and dave should have plently left over each month coz with my tips included we both earn roughly £1k a month, so what happens to that other £1k i wonder lol coz im always overdrawn at the end of the months
