Is it just me or do all Mums think that everyday living expenses is getting harder to deal with ? I’m a Mum of 5 children. With the ones that attend school, there’s school fees, books, lunches, uniforms and much more. Even with my younger ones that don’t go to school, they seem to constantly grow out of their clothes especially shoes !! Don’t get me wrong, I would do anything and everything needed for my children as the are my world

  • The cost of living is very high and you need to budget to fit all the expenses in!

  • Same here but i have three kids costs of everything just keep going up, Luckily with clothes they can get handed down if they are not worn out. But shoes they get well worn or damaged easily. For my kids its more a cases of i need not what i want but its hard not to give into them to treat them occasionally.

  • There isnt as many places that you can save money in any more. There is so many more ‘must haves’ rather than ‘nice to haves’

  • Living expenses are unbelievable these days!
    I have a two year old boy who’s feet are growing non stop, he has recently gone through another growth spurt, so need to find a way to bring in new clothes, not to mention the prices for groceries here. It’s crazy.
    It’s hard, no doubt about that.

  • Absolutely, and some things (like shoes) you can’t usually get second hand.


    • True – especially if you have tricky’ feet!
