Is money a source of stress in your family or for you personally? If so, why?

No secret that money is tight for most people these days. I'm wondering whether money is a driver of stress, either for you or your family - or your household if that's easier to answer.

And if so, what in particular is causing the stress? Not having enough money generally, or a specific expense or life thing? (e.g. disability aids, weekly food shop, school stuff)
All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    To be honest it`s mostly general although the hardest part is food. Me and my mum get free prescriptions so we don`t have to worry about the cost of medication although once I finish sixth form, I`ll have to start paying which is going to be an issue so I`m worrying about that.

    Thanks for your thoughts @Dancer! Totally hear you on prescriptions. One of those things that can catch you out with how much they are as you get older (it happened to me too!)

    Do you find that food is usually where you/your mum try to scrimp and save?
