It’s not the happiest subject, but it’s one that we’re all having to face right now. Many countries across the world are going through a cost of living crisis.

In short, we’re earning the same amount we did a few years ago, but the cost of near enough anything has gone up and we’re struggling to keep up. Many people, at this point, are finding that they just don’t have enough to get by and are at a loss as to what to do in order to keep afloat.
