We are making just-over the minimum payments and after a big wake-up call, we have cut the credit cards up, so they cannot be used, so we can't add to the debt. With strict budgeting and spending cuts, we manage to pay our bills each month, and we are left with approx £50 per week for a food shop /household items and 'disposable' income.
We've been given £300 in Love 2 Shop vouchers for a combined Christmas and Birthday present. The only place that looked useful was Iceland, but we don't have one local to us.
The rest of the shops, such as Dagenham, just sell “stuff” that doesn't help us out... I'm sure you can use them at Wilkes, you can use them there to get your essentials (toilet roll / soaps / cleaning fluids etc).
Sell them? Otherwise:Super drug for washing, shampoo etc, Will for cleaning products and milk Argos for household stuffWHSmith for wrapping paper, sellotape Agree Will for cleaning stuff and bath / shower gel.
Is it not worth spending them gradually on the 'extras' that most people need i.e. shoes, clothes, birthday presents etc? I can't remember which brand they are, but we use DH's Xmas bonus vouchers to buy the kids shoes when they need them.

Depending on the quality of Amazon ’s version, that knockoff could be good for consumers and bad for the merchant. Sadly for Amazon, the ambiguous definition of its customer means it can’t wipe out Shopify unless it stops using its market power to raise the fees it charges merchants while knocking off the products of its most successful third-party sellers.
According to the Journal, around 2010 Pirate’s owner Dale Thomas said that his company sold over $3.5 million worth of its Ravelli-brand camera tripods on Amazon. He ordered one of the Amazon tripods and found that it employed Pirate Trading’s design, had the same components, and used the same manufacturer, according to the Journal.
Amazon set its price for the tripod clone below what Thomas paid his manufacturer to make Pirate’s version. He decided to exit the business when he calculated that it would be less profitable for Pirate to pay its manufacturer to make its tripod than to buy Amazon ’s clone, repackage and resell it, according to the Journal.
Amazon cited authenticity issues as the reason it stopped selling the Pirate Trading tripods that competed with Amazonas’s clones. Stories like this create an opening for services aimed at merchants that don’t want to suffer Pirate Trading’s fate.
If a merchant sells a product for $10 on a Shopify store, they pay 59 cents for payment processing and “maybe a few dollars more for storage and fulfillment,” according to the Times. If a merchant is good at designing a product that customers want and marketing it effectively, Shopify is a better platform.
The Times reported that 86% of these generations would gladly post content for money and 54% would be social media influencers. A case in point is Kylie Jenner who has turned her existing social media audiences into a “billion-dollar e-commerce businesses seemingly overnight.” Consumers are eager to pay for such brands as long as they confer the magic feeling of being linked to a celebrity.
As the Times noted, in the recent past, a merchant operating on Shopify could pocket a $50 profit on a sweater it sold to consumers for $80. Facebook also wiped out the profits for brands that could keep their customer acquisition costs under control.
Joey Dillinger, All birds’s co-founder and co-CEO, told the Times that the company will not sell on Amazon or Foot Locker FL-0.1% because that would damage “its brand and pricing power.” They would love to devolve us into a feature-and-benefit set and then put every knockoff in the world next to us, and then just drive everybody down to the lowest price, even if you’re sacrificing quality,” he told the Times.
An Amazon spokesman told the Journal that its Galen shoe “didn’t infringe on All birds’ design” and that “offering products inspired by the trends to which customers are responding is a common practice across the retail industry.” What Amazon did to All birds makes it clear that it is not keen on allowing its most successful third-party merchants to survive.
