    There are two childcare payments. One is for everyone under the income mark (i think 150k) the other is for those working, studying or with child under 12mths

    I am a single mum, over half of what comes in goes out in rent

    then 1/4 of what is left goes out in electricity (so to pay all other bills and raise my two children I the remaining 3/4 of what comes in,
    we budget well, we do eat cheaper meats and I slow cook them mostly or I will bake or cook on low on stove top,
    I add chick peas, kidney beans and lentils to everything (I use cans at the moment but am trying to work out a way to switch to dried ones), we dont go out, my children do no payed activities.

    i am working on strict meal planing to stop food wastage and to stop trips to the shops
