First time

April 6th, 2016 at 06:59 am

I'm the only one working in the household. This has meant that we're entitled to receive healthy start vouchers. We got our first lot last week. We have four vouchers each worth 3.10. The catch is we can only use the vouchers on milk, fresh or frozen veg and infant formula. This suits me fine.

I thought I was going to be embarrassed using the vouchers but I was fine. I never thought that our financial situation would be so bad that we needed them. I have until the end of the month to use the other three.

My Swagbucks rewards are in my PayPal account. I'm going to withdraw the money and put it towards the remaining buy now pay later balance (the cot)

    My younger daughter qualifies for free lunch at the private high school she attends. I thought that I would be embarrassed by that, too, but its all preloaded onto her account card and all she has to do is go through the line and scan her card. And with the size of our family and what my husband makes, we were able to get a financial grant through the hospital where he had his surgery cutting our bill by 50% (and this is after insurance).

    I'm glad you have some assistance to keep you and your family healthy!

    Glad you are able to take advantage of safety nets in place for when you need them. How much is 3.10? How much do you normally spend?

    3.10 GBP is about $4.40, I think. Good for you on the Swagbucks.

    Your financial situation might not be that great but things like food vouchers will help your family get by. Good luck with the cot payoff!

    LAL: I don't know exactly how much I usually spend on fruit and milk but I do buy it every few days. Bananas are 68p/kilo here and bags of apples and pears that I bought were 85p. I always buy four pints of milk and that is 89p, a bit more in Tesco though.

    That's good you have that bit of extra boost for your grocery budget!
