I totally feel where you're coming from.

Money really sucks. And causes so much stress. Budget your money, and see what you can do to perhaps earn more. I'm honestly not sure how much 60 quid is... though it probably sounds more than it is. Lol.

Also look at tips to make shipping cost less, such as how you package it, the best place to send it and so forth, such as in the US, sometimes USPS is cheaper than FedEx or something. Not sure if you guys have more than one postal service.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. <3 (Besides send you money, which I totally wish I could do. )

You could acctually give me a few ideas on budgeting, I havnt got a clue!

I get about 80 quid, which is roughly 122 dollars a week, but it all goes. I dont even know where it goes, it just kinda dissapears!

Ah, see if you find out where it's going, that will help!

Like, make a list of what you need to spend each week. Or perhaps even month. Then as soon as you get your money, set that aside. Perhaps make a list for a month. Like, it may look like this.

Week 1:
Cat insurance 10 quid
Owe to Bob 20 quid (Things like this, you can take a part out of each week's pay to save the money)
New phone 20 quid

Total for week 50 quid.
(So when you get your money, take out 50 quid, put the rest in a safe place, like if you have a bank account, get it in there. Perhaps even lay aside 10 quid or something a week, so that you'll have a side account building up money when you want something bigger)

Week 2:
Owe Bob 40 quid
New phone 10 quid
Mobile bill 20 quid

Total 60 quid.

Then do the same, put the extra in the bank or something. Then set out a budget for things you may need during the week, such as lunch, a new pair of shoes, or whatever. Then, every time you spend, write it down! Have you ever used a check register? Google it, I'm sure you can print one out or something. You don't need to be writing checks for it to be beneficial. Then you'll know how much money you have left. And you can see where your money's going. Like, you might be like. O.o How much money am I spending on coffee in a week?!?

Hope that helped a bit! I realize I need to start doing the same. =P
