Q. Where have you had to cut back on? What's been most difficult to find money for?

We’ve had to rely on food parcels and vouchers for our food, cutting down on what we buy. We are trying to eat less (the adults) and the children are having to make things last longer. We’ve been using lots of blankets and layers so we don’t have to use the heating too much, and using the log burner when we have wood. Clothes are last on the list, I’m trying to wait until the charity shops open again. My 5 year old is squeezing into her current clothes. She grew out of her car seat, so we’ve had to spend a large chunk of money on a bigger one for her, which has meant we’ve had to scrimp elsewhere.
